Notes

A curious nose at first, full of crushed chalk, baking soda, aspirin and carbon paper. A mineralic profile with cut grass, wood glue, fruit-studded Wensleydale cheese, tree bark, white sone fruits and green jelly babies. With water it moves towards shredded wheat and dry cereals with brown sugar, rhum agricole, olive oil, crushed hazelnuts, lemon peel and shoe polish. The mouth is all hay bails, nettle tea and honey-infused porridge at first. An old steamie with plenty of damp sackcloth, camphor and old mead. There’s also a soft waxiness and a few bay leaves. With water there’s lanolin, tinned fruit salads, percy pig sweeties, pine resin and diluted paraffin.
