    • Nose
      Clear and profound Chinese style Shirley, Banlangen, Rehmannia, Folding Ear, Old-fashioned Dona, High Year Medium Shirley;
      It is more close to the sweetness of Zhongzheng than the fruits such as plums, noodles, brown sugar, and sweet embryos;
      Muddy sour rot, milk flakes, frozen coconut milk, hot limestone baked by the sun, double skin milk, and the unique waxy texture of the kitten.
      After the cup was awake for twenty minutes, the alcoholic breath was still more exciting, and some of the damage was experienced.

      Try to drip three drops of distilled water and pour out the more obvious citrus flavor, lemon, fruit oil, grass, and chrysanthemum
      Then the nut wind began to occupy the home, fried melon seeds, ginger powder, roasted hazelnuts, dough, roasted seeds, bread crumbs, allspice and other special warm smell.
    • Taste
      High sweetness, Yuhua stone dumplings, white sesame paste, noodle sauce, milk jelly, boiled a lot of soup base;
      Fruity is very obvious, citrus, lemon, pineapple, melon, orange, mango, apple, pomegranate, kumquat, strawberry, peach, jasmine, chrysanthemum, high sweet and low acid;
      Slight beeswax with milk, salt, pepper, spicy, smoke residue, some more exciting Thai spice powder, plant stems and leaves, almond powder.
    • Finish
      Long-lasting, slightly bitter, beeswax, salt and pepper, white birch, burning sensation.
