Heavenly. I took my reviewing cap off for this one and just simply enjoyed so I don't have a lot of descriptives here, but I recall a dominant fruit that I couldn't quite pinpoint (figs?) and an overall sweetish finish (maybe the heavy use of dark candi sugar). As a treat every now and again, it's worth every penny.
