Delta Dawn, what's that flower you have onOnce presented to me, the cocktail offered an apricot and kümmel spice that came across as perfume-like with cherry-peach notes. Lemon on the sip joined a fruity note from the apricot, and as things warmed up over time, the cherry-like flavors began to appear on the sip as well. In retrospect, the cherry notes might be due to the Black Mission figs in the Diabolique Bourbon infusion (Estragon has a cordial license and cannot carry Bourbon proper). Next, the swallow showcased the whiskey followed by spiced apricot flavors.
Could it be a faded rose from days gone by?
And did I hear you say he was a-meeting you here today
To take you to his mansion in the sky?
