The surprise from South Africa. This delicate brandy produces a nose of dried apricots, apricot jam, acacia honey and hints of spice and wood. The spiciness is wonderfully repeated on the palate, backed up with a dry wintry palette of vanilla, nuts and dried fruits.
It goes excellently with an El Rey del Mundo Choix Supreme, whose mild and spicy, creamy, slightly sweet texture boosts the spirit’s fruity notes.
Elicits memories of bottled peaches and filled gingerbread. For a relaxing afternoon.
