Excellent,
Highly Recommended

Tasting Note:

Lovely auburn/henna color shines in the light. At first, the aroma seems aggressive with alcohol but then it rapidly calms down becoming a spicy (cinnamon, clove) and zesty bouquet of elegance and substance. Taste-wise, there's plenty of oily texture plus orchard fruit flavor notes (pear, plum) that seem baked and resiny. Raisiny aftertaste is a highlight moment.
