    A medium-bodied, brisk cup which starts with a distinct nutty-woody flavor, which gradually gains precedence as you make your way through the cup. Delicate notes of cocoa along with subtle undertones of burnt wood come through around the edges, rendering greater depth and lively feel to the liquor. Subtle stone-fruity tones interlaced with delectable notes of pralines come through towards the finish, making for a distinguished finish.
