Blind Assessment:

Evaluated as espresso. Smooth, balanced. Caramel, roasted cacao-nib, honeysuckle-like flowers, apricot, star anise in aroma and small cup. Smooth, lightly syrupy mouthfeel; quiet, very sweet finish. In three parts milk a gently caramelly chocolate dominates, with hints of star anise and apricot.
