Hints of baked/cooked peaches and apricots. It has a weedy quality (suggestive of wet hay or straw) that I have not seen anyone else mention. I have no experience with these tastes/smells, but some have said there are notes of lychee, plumeria, and loquat. Velvety and smooth; sweet, warm and elegant. No acidity or bitterness. Almost imperceptible astringency.
The appearance of dry leaves: twigs from spring shoots, dark in colour. The liquor is medium-golden.
