Notes

The initial nose is dusty and sneezy – white pepper, nutmeg, leather and hay – eventually picking up tangerine peel, Beech Nut chewing gum, vanilla, rose, geranium and strawberry coulis. The unreduced palate has pleasant warmth and some astringency – pickled ginger, grapefruit peel, popping candy, menthol, chilli, leather and oak. The reduced nose is sweeter and more perfumed – tinned pears, blackcurrant Tunes, summer creams, Edinburgh Rock and sherbet straws – but still with hessian, hops, public baths and garden sheds. The palate is now sweet and fruity up front (Campinos, nectarines, jam donuts) with hints of liquorice, vapour rub, oak and spice to finish.
