Dark forest well curled leaves offset by fresh leaves and silvery tips exhale a ivies and a sweet toasty undertone of milk chocolates.
Substantial crimpy leaves with numerous internodes in an olive sheen with wholesome vegetal freshness of snap beans and tender bamboo.
Golden liquor scented with fresh floral subtleties of lilies and tender bamboo evokes a sprightly body of herbaceous sweet asparagus enlivened by a rounded honey tone that keeps up the smoothness till the end for a gentle mellow finish.
