Blind Assessment:

Richly sweet, spicy, tobacco-toned. Pipe tobacco, almond brittle, ginger blossom, mango, roasted cacao nib in aroma and cup. Sweet-savory structure with gentle, rounded acidity; crisp, satiny mouthfeel. The finish resonates with vanilla-toned pipe tobacco and ginger blossom.

The Bottom Line: Expressive and resonant: Spice-toned florals and sweetly savory pipe tobacco offer rich throughlines.
