Add to my notebook

Stored in Montreal’s dry climate since its purchase, this famous "rock wulong" from Fujian is offered here in a remarkably well-balanced aged version.

Ten years of aging allowed its rich dark chocolate flavors to strike right through its roasted body, Notes of ripe fruits and dark berries trail in the mouth while a superb finish of sandalwood and vanilla will leave you wanting for more.
