Ultimate Recommendation

Tasting Notes:

Incredibly pungent waves of aroma are full of ripe tropical fruit. Candied papaya and pineapple preserves are sweet in the nose and ripe on the palate. The flavors evolve to a pleasant earthiness before morphing into more roasted and caramelized fruit notes. Endlessly complex.
