“Sweetness that is smooth, sweet, texture-finer and makes you feel translucency. Sweetness with sourness, Ripe persimmon, Mandarin orange”
Nose : Sweet, ripe, delicious strawberries, custard cream and a lingering hint of cocoa.
Palate : Oily, yet smooth and sweet with the underlying flavours of ripe persimmon and mandarin.
Finish : Very clean and woody with a lingering spiciness.
