Upon sipping, the palate is greeted by the richness of buttery caramel and stewed orchard fruits, primarily apple and pear.

The finish is enduring and elegantly smooth, characterized by lingering notes of vanilla, caramel, and a closing remark of rye spice. The balance achieved is noteworthy, rounding off the experience in a manner that compels the next sip.

Adding a splash of water or a single ice cube can further open up the flavors, offering yet another layer of complexity to explore.
