[ bottle ][ 1.5oz ][ @Tasting ][ $? ][ mini snifter ][ 05.01.16 ]
translucent copper, puffy white head drops but laces well. Leafy caramel tea, lightly green, plenty of sugar through the nose. Soft profile of course, plenty of caramel and toffee, okay with lightly green elements, and finishing with more light caramel and paper, bitterness nonexistent. Sticky and watery, toffee delivery but sweetness in check.
