Notes

The nose was easy and welcoming – bright and playful – imagine frolicking like a puppy in a flower meadow, enjoying ice-cream cones, donuts and custard creams. The neat taste was totally different – black, black liquorice, herbs, roots and willow wands; charred pepper and wasabi heat – evoking a witch’s workbench and medicinal potions of considerable power. On the reduced nose we were enticed by sweeties (Dolly Mixtures, candy corn) into a broom cupboard. The palate was now less bitter and much more balanced – a mix of sugar and spice and all things nice – ginger biscuits, sweet chilli sauce and glowing embers on the finish.
