Sweet, deep, nut-toned but juicy. Roasted pistachio, baker’s chocolate, lime zest, hints of peach and elderflower in aroma and cup. Gently and roundly bright in structure; smooth, satiny in mouthfeel. Coconut, implicit in the cup, emerges in a nut-buttery finish.

Evaluated as espresso. Fruit-toned, chocolaty. Black cherry, brandy, dark chocolate, sandalwood, lavender in aroma and small cup. Crisp, silky mouthfeel; spice-toned finish, redolent of sandalwood. A hint of sweet, brandy-like ferment lingers in three parts milk, supported by deep chocolate notes and spicy aromatic wood.

Deeply sweet and roundly tart in structure. Full, syrupy mouthfeel. The shifting, layered intrigue in the cup carries far into a long, resonant finish.
