Notes

The sweetness is immediately apparent with notes of vanilla cream, maraschino cherry, cough drops, caramel wafers, toffee apple and sweet pastries. There’s also a lighter herbal quality manifest as chopped rosemary. Then back to shortbread, buttercream and fruit chews. With water it moves towards strewed fruits, golden sultanas, chopped dates, muesli, gorse flowers and hardwood shavings. The mouth opens on mead, light hessian, various bourbon cocktails and sweet American oak. Sawdust, iced cinnamon buns, marjoram, ginger cake and gooseberry preserve with a hint of lemon tea. When reduced it’s all on custard, marsala wine, pink peppercorns, orange sauce and Chinese spices.
