    April 28, 2016 - Thick, unctuous, rich and incredibly sweet, the complex array of spicy orange, tangerines, apricot and tropical fruits slathered with honey was almost too much of a good thing. A little goes a long way with this sweet, treat. Blind, I would have guessed it was a TBA.

    March 23, 2016 - Sir Orr's Birthday Dinner (Totoraku): Perfectly balanced sticky. Not too sugary, but you feel like you want to chew on this nectar for hours.

    March 15, 2016 - Apricot and Honey. Great way to end a meal as the dessert. Will definitely buy more of it.

    February 26, 2016 - Spectacular dessert wine. These are funny wines - they are so in your face with the orange peel and honey and white fruits and then suddenly there's this hint of acidity and rather than being cloying these are more enticing. Not subtle though. This is a dessert wine that can stand coming after three big reds ('96 Ducru, '05 Pontet Canet, '94 La Mouline). Delicious as always.
