A delicate, fresh and fruity aroma with ripe apples, apricots and pineapples at first was followed by deep-filled lemon meringue pie and vanilla essence. To taste super sweet treat, like lemon lollies dipped in homemade zingy lemon sherbet. Despite being quite delicate, without being shy on the nose neat, it took water very well and a minty note arrived; a mixture of menthol rolling tobacco, mint chocolate and a cloudy apple & mint juice. On the palate now a glass of refreshing basil apple lime juice with the tartness of the lime balanced by the sweetness of the apples.
