Notes

The nose was described as a ‘nippy sweetie’ – the sweetness of caramel sauce, rainbow drops and sugar-coated nuts; the nippy side to its personality was in the form of pepper, pine, lemon, tonic and balsamic glaze. The palate had a similar duality – soft brown sugar, barley sugars, toffee and Rich Tea biscuits against acid drop tongue tingles and peppery spicy heat. The reduced nose shifted to a coffee shop – polished wood, brown sugar, fruit slice (fly cemetery)and espresso. The palate now became much more mild-mannered and sweeter – Cadbury’s Whole Nut with mixed spice providing interest and intrigue at the end.
