I’ve tried this variety before, and thanks to Michelle, I’m enjoying a rerun. Here’s what Upton has to say about it: Longer steepings yield a robust cup with notes of rose and peppery hints. At briefer steepings, the liquor is sweeter and more delicate.
So far, I’ve just tried the two minute variation, which has a very dark cherry vibe. Not sure there are any roses blooming in my cup. However, it builds up a lot of muscle the longer it sits, so I’m looking forward to a longer steep with milk next time to see what happens.
