Appearance: apricot orange in mid tone
Aroma: honey, orange blossom, and apricot
Palate: caramel honey, orange and apricot with bracing acidity. round spices with noble sweetness. full and concentrated. dense and powerful but yet elegant. long finish.

At this point in time, the powerful and sweet aroma of apricot and honey, on its own, is already charming. The big and powerful but not overwhelming palate is another step. It was really sweet but acidity balance it well. No throat cutting at all. This is seriously a beautiful bottle at really decent price. It kept on and on through out the course of dessert. A perfect match for fruity dessert throughout this decade. I wish I have more of these in stock.
