The Panel noted that this was a punchier and altogether more muscular example of this normally more delicate distillate. At first we found crushed aspirin, lemon jam, biting white pepper, dried apricots, fulsome earthiness, throat lozenges, camphor and dry cereals. With reduction we found the earthiness manifest more as turmeric, brown bread and motor oil. With underlying notes of lime zest, gravel, dried sage and vase water. The palate arrived with notes of white jelly beans, cloves, pineapple cubes, lemon cheesecake and butter biscuits. Water softened things a little and revealed chamomile, truffle oil, mushroom powder, hummus, dried tarragon, white asparagus and a resurgent, chalky aspirin note.
