Words: The sensual fragrance ties of citrusy bitter oil and soothingly bittersweet delicately stimulate the palette. There’s a tip mouthfeel of cool and fresh water that dynamically fuse with a rapidly touch of rye encountering Chinato and acidic fruity from coffee altogether. It’s not the end yet as the bitterness soaks your whole mouth and slowly deep-rooted.
Each sip deepens the bitterness but doesn’t cover other flavors. Yet, the cherry does steer the overall tasting notes into a more luscious and an exciting wine-like way. It’s a sipper that doesn’t lose itself when diluting and continue to give diverse kinds of fresh and bittersweet tastes.
