Whew, look at that beautiful picture. My piece of cake was admittedly a little darker and not quite so stunning.
Dried leaf straight up smells like apple. Drank the rinse; light fruit tree scent. Took a while to open up, even after I reached in and broke up the chunk.
Much more mellow overall than it’s un-aged compatriot. Apple butter, vanilla, light malt, lychee.
Wish I’d thrown the whole 10g into this 150ml instead of stopping at 7g, as it’s delicate to the point of ghosty. I long-steeped the remaining crumbs and then did just that. Maverick white tea loosey-goosey shenanigans up in here.
Alas… rather than progressing further into sweet, it turned a corner to malty tannin and I lost interest.
