Mental Image: Brunch-Inspired Mojito
Waxy citrus, dried fruits, and spice. Sweet fresh citrus zest with tantalizing hints of tangerine, orange, and calamansi. A peppery backing to the fruit with notes of anise, cinnamon, and cola. Notes of dried stone fruits and dark chocolate with a bit of maltiness brought orange sponge cake to mind.
Medium bodied with a mild dryness and crisp, bold flavors of citrus, dried fruits, and floral spice. Sweet fruity candies hit the palate first: grape Nerds and Poprocks. A pleasant tobacco spice came through with notes of dried lavender, citrus zest, and slightly bitter pith. Fruits carried through on the mid-palate as pineapple, orange, and calamansi led to a refreshing finish with hints of dark chocolate.
Lingering sweet citrus sugars and pepper.
