This outstanding selection has a profusion of downy golden buds decorating the large, well-twisted leaves. The dark amber liquor has a very fragrant aroma, with hints of cocoa and a light suggestion of rose. The cup is syrupy sweet and smooth, with toasty/earthy notes, complemented by a refreshing brightness in the finish.
