The nose opened with a bouquet of perfumed and floral scents that combined pot pouri with the distinctive character of pear drops. Sweetness came with caramel and butter pastry whilst a strong spicy note tickled the nose like horseradish sauce. The tingle softened to cinnamon stick with a sprinkling of dried turmeric on malted barley. A dash of water created a backdrop of ginger biscuits and shortbread, still bound by a strong sense of freshly cut flowers and jasmine tea. Confected notes now turned to marzipan with chilli white chocolate warming the tongue. The warming glow of fresh ginger prevailed through to the finish where it was joined by crunchy cereals and a dry and woody finish.
