Tasting Notes -
Nose: This "hive" sits in a grassy meadow, heavy with the scent of floral orange blossom and ripening apples.
Palate: A tingling spice dances over the tongue with zesty orange peel and the warmth of a butterscotch and honey toddy. With water, the sweetness intensifies offering toffee-dipped red apples.
Finish: The citrus juiciness lingers with a whisper of applewood smoke.
