Description

The nose is immediately attractive – sweet, mellow and yellow – banana toffee, dulce de leche, Caramac, custard trifle, honey, popcorn and profiteroles, with spring flowers, harvested fields of ripe grain and gentle intimations of wood. The palate is an exquisite whisky dessert of Black Forest gateau, panettone amaretto, Ben & Jerry’s salted caramel ice-cream and Toffifees, with a surprisingly restrained echo of wood and spice tingling the finish. Water is completely unnecessary, but adding it brings out ‘after the rain’ scented new linen, Christmas cinnamon, Daim Bars and cookie dough. The palate gets caramel wafer, butterscotch and sweet extract of oak – utterly amazing.
