The nose is primarily sweet – we found honey, toffee, syrup sponge and rum and raisin fudge, but there were also elusive, quirky notes that we variously described as linoleum, hessian, Riesling, dunnage and marijuana. The palate is also sweet – mainly iced caramel chews and McGowan’s Highland Toffee but with a spicy flavour reminiscent of Birnbrot (dense Swiss pastry-wrapped loaf made of dried fruits, mainly pear; nuts and spices); other, less obvious flavours hinted at polished wood, linseed oil and putty. Water brought out more spice (the Birnbrot was now Black Bun) and some beguiling bitter chocolate (Black Magic chocolate caramels).
