Description

The nose’s subtle sweetness seduced us softly with toffee, brown sugar, barley sugars, honeyed cereal and caramel wafers; we also got tinned pineapple, dried papaya, scented candles and new wood. The palate was sweet, perfumed and tangy (apple chews, popping candy, grape and blackcurrant-flavoured sherbet) while cinnamon and liquorice warmth livened up the finish. The reduced nose had vanilla slice, honeycomb and syrupy flapjack sweetness and a rather racy fruit perfume (ripe pineapple, apple crumble, gooseberry tart, lemon squeezed over pears). From rhubarb rock to ginger marmalade, the reduced palate was a happy dram – terrifically tasty and dangerously more-ish.
