Description

The nose gave us fresh oak and carpentry, honey and toffee sweetness, beeswax, sherbet straws and floral and fruity hints. The palate was sweet (chalky sweets, mango syrup, Demerara) with entertainingly lively citric elements (piña colada, lemon, grapefruit) and some inoffensive little splinters of wood. Adding water seemed to close the nose down for a while – eventually opening up subtle tones of white chocolate, pink wafers, raisin flapjacks, snowdrops and rosewater. The reduced palate though, was easy-drinking, tastylicious and mouth-puckering – tropical fruits, lemon meringue pie, silky honey swirled with wood oil and a tingling finish of chilli, nutmeg, clove and tobacco.

DRINKING TIP: To put you in a receptive frame of mind before going out for the evening.
