The nose shows citrus, exotic fruits and toasted bread aromas. After twirling, dried fruits like apricot are revealed as well as some notes of fresh mint and exotic fruits (guava and pineapple). The mouth is full, smooth and fruity, with a nice balance between alcohol, sugar and acidity. The freshness on the palate highlights the fresh and candied fruits aromas and the vanilla flavour in the final.
