Notes

The nose, initially fresh and delicate suggesting lemon, honey and melon, soon opened up its fragrance of camomile lawns, hand cream and jasmine-scented candles; with time dusty tobacco notes appeared. The palate was an intriguing mix of sweetness, spicy heat and citric astringency – we got lemon bonbons, cinnamon rolls and hot-cross buns – and a fizzy lime and ginger combination reminiscent of Moscow Mules. Not much change on the reduced nose – some fresh-sawn wood and Chinese sweet and sour. The palate, however, became sweeter and more easy-drinking, with lemon puffs and the stimulating, uplifting effect of lemon and ginger tea.
