Teaviews Member: Lynn Lynn's review:
"The liquor was a pale peridot green and smelled fantastic. And I'm happy to say the flavor lived up to the promise, too. Delicate, mouth filling, stone fruit sweet, a little nutty, a little buttery, and very fragrant in the mouth. Breathing out through the nose between sips was a sensory pleasure. "
