Nose: Powerful and sweet – honey, butterscotch, nougat. Fresh croissant, buttery and sweet. Almost intoxicatingly sweet – not cloying, but extremely decadent.
Taste: Sweet again on the palate – notes of lemon curd, honey, cake batter, slivered almond, minerality and cream cheese frosting. Medium on the palate, with a hint of heat, but all is well behaved. Faint cocoa. Nutella. All dessert, all day. Fruits be damned.
Finish: Long finish, really lovely here. Oats, candied almond, pepper, bread and yeast. Lemon and cream cheese frosting. Lovely lovely lovely.
Overall: This my jam, in a way that typically is not my jam. I love how decadent and dessert forward this is, while still maintaining some complexity and falling short of being cloying. I want to drink this while I eat lemon danish and think about having a cigar or some prosciutto. Its really great.
