Tasting Notes from the Master Taster, Jackie Zykan
Aroma: Rich brown sugar and magnolia blossom, with hints of soft sassafras and candied lemon
Taste: Spice awakens immediately leading with sharp black pepper and cinnamon stick, rounding out with notes of dried dill and baked apple
Finish: Allspice and peppercorn introduce a long and dry finish which ignites with pine, anise and bright lemon zest
