Notes

The nose starts delicate - fresh and floral - then fruits arrive (star-fruit, papaya, kumquat) followed by comforting sweetness (crème anglaise, honeycomb crunch, vanilla ice-cream, syrupy flapjacks). The initial palate is sweet and warming, smooth and sophisticated – Turkish delight, chocolate-coated toffee and vanilla fudge – the second taste introduces pepper, polished wood, bitter lemon and stewed rhubarb – tart and spicy tingles rounding it off. The reduced nose evokes a flowering magnolia outside a sweet shop. The palate is now bathed in exotic fruits (tangy orange, perfumed pear, tutti-frutti) chocolate confectionery and puttied oak – a triumvirate of transcendental tastiness; a symphony of sensual sapidity.
