Sweet apple, vanilla, some clove, buttercream
Thin but pleasant and sweet. No heat. Apples, vanilla, some pear, a little clove and spice. Cream.
Short but mild. No heat or astringency. Kind of like a weak apple juice here with some faint cream.
Its fine for what it is - simple, easy, daily sipper and priced just about right. Rank 5.
