Notes

The nose was a spectacle of temptation, combining sweet notes of butterscotch and fudge with all the aromas of a Sunday roast. Sweet vermouth introduced complex herbal tones that opened into rosemary and tarragon topped lamb, slow roasting in an oven beside carrots and parsnips drizzled with honey. Buttery textures brought us to creme caramel that became hot chocolate before moving to mocha coffee. Sweets notes of vanilla sponge cake merged with toffee sauce and a balanced tingle came from pink peppercorns and candied ginger. Honey roast ham returned us to richer realms with a fruity twist from blackberries and quince jelly before digestive biscuits welcomed us on the finish.
