Notes

The nose, slightly elusive at first, became complex and eventually rewarding – we got creamy toffee, fudge and custard creams; hay, pepper, pencil shavings and coconut; tinned mandarins and marigolds. The palate also had creamy sweetness (Jammy Dodgers), some sharper, almost astringent sweetness (damson jam) and pleasant drying peppercorn heat. The nose opened up considerably with water – sherbet straws, fruit juice bars and citrus, oak-aged gin, holiday poolside furniture and the dryness of a spice cupboard. The palate now had the spiciness of ginger snaps, the sweetness of coconut cake and the dryness of manzanilla or gin martini – better with water.
