The nose had foamy shrimps, nougat, honey and strawberry chews, but also an aromatic array of manly, masculine notes – woollen sweaters with leather elbow-patches, Victory Vs, Oddfellows, ginger, cinnamon and snuff. The neat palate was a definite ‘Wow!’ – ginger biscuits, muscovado on roasted peaches, brandy snaps, Peshwari naan and something medicinal (tincture of clove, Euthymol). Water brought cricket bats and upholstery shops to the nose; plus cut grass, linen, bourbon biscuits, black pepper and polished shoes. The reduced palate was tastier and juicer – black bun, Liquorice Allsorts, coffee dregs, orange peel and sugar-coated fennel seeds – this was a real winter warmer.
