He said: Clear golden color. Sweet aromas that combine both caramel candy and orange blossoms. Luscious, silky textured, creamy mouth-feel with delicious caramel and apricot flavors and a long finish with noticeable spice and just the right amount of acidity that begins to clear the palate for the next sip. It’s what I imagine “the nectar of the ancient Greek gods” would taste like!!!
She said: Delicious with or without chocolate. Luscious dark honey and orange flavor emerged in the long finish. Yum!
