A rather lovely initial aroma of fresh fabrics, laundered linens, sunflower oil, flatbreads, buttered toast and a wee hint of pocked-melted Penguin chocolate biscuits. This overall starchy and malty quality really works nicely with these further notes of lemon barley water, herbal toothpaste, pomegranate, star fruits and banana pudding. Reduction brings out elegant floral aspects such as bog myrtle, heather flowers, meadowsweet and gorse. Then back to cereals with grist, putty, anthracite and trail mix. In the mouth this one opens rather surprisingly on hessian, clover, mint julep with posh ginger beer, bread pudding with sultanas, dried mushrooms and touches of wax and canvas. With water the mouth becomes more floral and starchier again, more fabrics, more chocolate biscuits, lightly sooty, barley sugars, vegetable broths, chalky, Serrano ham wrapped around Manchego cheese and hints of roast vegetables.
