Description

On first encounter the nose displayed a restrained demeanour, giving away only brief snippets of salt, rosemary and smoked ham in an attempt to flout the snout. The palate could not be deceived however as just a single sip released a cacophony of salted ribs and sticky glazed pork, drizzled with mustard seeds over maple syrup and served with a large dollop of spiced apple sauce. A strong wood influence engaged memories of old school desks, prickly hedgerows and gorse bushes. A medicinal note appeared like vintage cough syrup with a floral hint of violets. The finish remained sweet, combining chocolate logs with baked orange and a spicy tingle of honey mustard at the end.
