Notes

The nose touched a lot of bases – buttery (shortbread, croissants), chocolate fudge and coffee and walnut gateau – some honeysuckle, vanilla and a hint of Riesling. The palate continued that duality of dark sweetness (brown sugar, chocolate truffles) and a sharper side, (Refreshers, poached pears, pineapple), then some cocoa powder, cardamom and cinnamon dryness to finish. Water brought fruit tart and gummi bears, American cream soda, chocolate ice-cream and Oreos to the nose, while the palate developed star-fruit and fruit Polos (in waxed paper), Cadbury’s Swiss Roll and orange Matchmakers – liquorice imps and cigar boxes showed up given enough time in the mouth.
