Taste: Very supple, Vanilla dominates this. Coconut, chocolate. Very much an aperitif or desert in its’s own right.
Finish: Toffee, a smidgen of apple, silky crème Brule and mocha. Shorter and no significant warmth.
Thoughts: I wouldn’t recommend this as a daily drinker, but if you were out of vanilla ice cream and wanted a liquid desert I would say this makes and excellent substitute. I greatly enjoyed this. Ooodles of Vanilla
