Tangerine, pink grapefruit, and green tea in the nose lead to a palate that combines sumptuousness, subtle creaminess, delicacy, and irresistible sheer refreshment such as you will seldom encounter at this level of ripeness. Malt, nut oils, and honey add depth and richness yet at the same time delicate refinement of juicy citrus, zest, and saline savor adds to the invigoration in a strikingly long finish.
Headily floral lily and heliotrope notes mark the nose with lime, peach, fresh cherry, and nut oils following on the palate. At a mere 7.5% alcohol, this performs the feat familiar chez Zilliken of balancing hugely high residual sugar against efficacious acids and harboring palpable density while seeming delicate. This is infectiously juicy, lip-smacking, bright, and penetrating in length.
