Notes

The nose gave pineapple cubes, honey, toffee, custard creams and tablet, before evolving into peach schnapps, Juicy Fruit gum and suggestions of a pipe smoker walking through a flower meadow. On the neat palate, Turkish Delight sweetness was overshadowed by leather, liquorice allsorts and vaguely medicinal spices – with a mouth-drying finish. The reduced nose evoked candy corns, lady finger biscuits and ‘Danish pastries being handed out in a carpet shop’. The palate seemed much sweeter now – Eccles cakes and sticky toffee sauce – in better balance with the Jamaica cake, hot cross buns, Dentyne, fag packets and Fisherman’s Friends.
