Top Notes For
Severn Goodwin

Nose has Anjou pear peel, white Carnations, sliced quince, cold yellow apple slice, slight green herbals (crushed celery), steel cut oats with faint vanilla notes.

Palate has ripe pear, (light) under-ripe apricot, light honey, (light) under-ripe pineapple core, slight strawberry, faint oak influence with mild acidity.

Honestly, this needs some time or considerable decant; revisit 2024+?
