The nose was mainly fruity (sugary apple pie, pear, mango, nectarine); also honeycomb, ice-cream, sugared almonds and rum and raisin chocolate. With water, the emphasis shifted towards orange (chocolate orange, spiced pomander, duck a l’orange), plus boiled sweets, chocolate fudge, tinned fruit cocktail and sweet white wine. The palate impressed us greatly – summer fruits and rhubarb rock, old-fashioned sweets, café crème cigars, floral perfumes and tiger balm – one panellist imagined the Savoy cocktail bar, another the Hansel and Gretel witch’s house. The reduced palate was juicy, tasty, sweet and perfumed – a gloriously classy dram, with tropical fruits, coconut and vanilla.
