There’s an initial blast of cake and confectionary aromas (e.g. iced gems and custard slice) – then you find dusty, almost sneezy notes of white pepper and lime zest; peeled twigs and unripe bananas. The taste balances sweetness (Neapolitan ice-cream, petits fours) with a dry spicy finish (ginger cake, sugar-coated fennel seeds, turmeric). The reduced nose seems greener – a gardener, who has been clearing nettles and brambles from his precious sweet peas trained on canes, takes out a tobacco pouch. The palate now has the aniseed-flavoured liquorice allsorts, raisins in a curry and some cereal granola with coconut, blueberries and dried banana.
