"This is an "in the pocket" Guatemala that excites for how well it encapsulates expectations. With dense caramel and sweet milk chocolate flavors, it's like biting into your favorite candy bar; you know the one. But what really makes this selection excel is the bright zing of lime up front that punctuates each sip from the decadent richness of the finish."
