Dry: The leaves smell faintly of chocolate almond biscotti. The aroma is very faint.
As it’s steeping: It smells of fresh tobacco and wood smoke. The liquor is a dark golden brown.
Flavor: Incredibly smooth and balanced. Almost, but not quite, sweet. Caramel with autumn leaves, oak wood, and some slight umami. Very refined with sweet fruitiness coming out in later steepings.
