In spite of this being a few years old, it has upheld its flavour incredibly well. For a Ceylon, it isn’t too astringent. While the leaf smells creamier, when it comes to the flavour, this tastes more like straight up whiskey than Irish cream. And not a smoky whiskey, either. Very subtle. I’m not a fan of whiskey myself but this reminds me of the liquor-laced fillings found in holiday chocolates.
