Description

The nose gave us hints of confectionery (jelly beans, sweetie necklaces, biscuit wafers) some honeydew melon and a whole chapter of fresher aromas (grass, flowers, Polo mints, tarragon, wood shavings, camphor). The palate had some dry perfumy, leather characters, considerable sweetness (gulab jamin, grainy tablet, marzipan) and spice (ginger, chilli, clove, nutmeg) especially on the finish. The reduced nose was floral, fragrant and fresh – Cadbury’s Mini Eggs and chalky sweets in a laundrette, with violets in a vase. The palate retained its complexity but the sweetness now dominated making it even more appealing – Rowntree’s Fruit Gums and dark chocolate gingers.
