chocolate -> hard rosewood -> tough raisin -> bitter bump quickly swept by citrus -> cherry-vanilla w/ vodka twist -> spiced jasmine-cream ending... all braced, bracketed & planked in chocolate
Quality   16.7 / 20
Dark in name only; goes down easy & creamy. Very vanilla-driven; the Tahitian variety plays steady hand in steering both direction & shape of taste, subduing acids in flavor of chocolate cream & florid finish. Relatively short, with a bump & a jump, that maps well the Mid-American palette.
