Mesmerizing. Tropical, complex, orange blossom honey. Indulgent now and I hope to try this again in a few decades.

Flavor is expansive and hard to describe. The smell of sun ripe apricots and tree picked nectarines so strong. Summer hay, warm tropic breezes, jasmine, orange peel, anise, spices, citrus, golden plum and honeyed nectar in perfect proportion. Intense and tightly composed now... going to be transportive.

18/20 (95/100) В аромате на первом плане лимонный мармелад, за ним прячутся апельсиновые цукаты, абрикосовый джем, мёд, ваниль, белый перец и ментол. Тельное с довольно высокой кислотностью. Насыщенное во вкусе, здесь проявляются ноты карамели. Великолепно. #annualclarettasting

First time tasting YQuem and it is truly in a class of its own so hard to justify a ranking. But for pure pleasure it’s also hard to imagine anything better. It’s flavors seem elusive, and shade into each other tricking your senses, all of which is intensely enjoyable. When you try to focus on its honey sweetness it turns its darkness on you and is all herbal. When you call out its mouthfeel it slides past you, both unctuous and feathery. Amazing experience.
