      The nose reminds me of pancakes with peanut butter followed by honey custard and flowers.
    • Taste

      The taste is perfectly balanced and has notes of apple pie, chocolate bananas and sweet grassy nuances.
    • Finish

      Sweet and subtle. Floral and nutty.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Immediately quite light, but it develops nicely on the tongue. Sweet and slightly spicy at the same time.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Medium long.
