Description

The nose is a supple ooze of ripe pear flesh, Moroccan spices, lemon wax, tea tree oil, fresh linen and fabric softener. Growing greener with time it moves towards herbal liqueurs, cut grass, graphite and sunflower oil. Lemon thyme, ripe melon and a pinch of saffron and turmeric. Water reveals crushed mint leaf, mint tea, lemon and ginger tonic, coal dust and a deft flicker of waxiness.  The mouth unfolds with white pepper, white chocolate and clove rock. Then simmering spices, green apple peelings, nutmeg, ovaltine and preserved fruits. Some muscovado sugar, a dab of ointment and a few slices of fresh pineapple. Reduction gives up more citrus, more melon, more pineapple and more emphatic green fruits wrapped up with assorted confectionary complexities.
