Description

Our first impressions were of a mature, sophisticated nose – with pleasing aromas of sponge cake, golden syrup, vanilla, marzipan and abundant aromatic fruits (blood orange, pineapple, banana, apple, lemon). Familiarity and a drop of water brought out some woody notes (IKEA furniture, cinnamon, almonds). The palate was mouth-filling, gum-tingling and fun – the panel’s suggestions included chewing twigs, dolly mixtures, vanilla, toffee, honey on crumpets and Bucks Fizz; pink peppercorn heat and oaky tannins formed a solid but unobtrusive infrastructure and gentle perfume bitterness complicated the finish. An urbane and subtle dram with many facets to provide quiet entertainment – fun without fireworks.

DRINKING TIP: For relaxing summer evenings maybe?
