At first, the scent is mild and sweet, but with time opens up to a distinct caramel aroma with a tinge of orange peel. Although fairly boozy on the palate at first sip, eventually this viscous, honey-colored spirit emerges as mellow and fruity, and faintly peated. A splash of water coaxes out more vanilla tones. Good value.
