Nose
Flint and seashells and lichen on wet rocks. Crushed herbal notes, tulips and hyacinth. A honeyed hot toddy.
Palate
Tinned pear, tangerine and lychees in syrup, with a hint of clove.
Finish
Syrup sweet, a little cloying for my taste.
Comment
There was too much of the confectionary sweetness for my taste, but I can see that you would like this as an alternative to a liqueur.

Nose
A deep but relatively straightforward nose of soft banana, apricot, honey and creamy oak.
Palate
A little flabby and oily with sweet, set honey, banana and apricot. It becomes exceedingly sweet toward the middle. Again a pleasant depth but somewhat simple.
Finish
Reasonable length with maybe a touch of sweet spice emerging.
Comment
For me there is not quite enough alcohol to balance the sweetness.
