Notes

The initial nose was perfumed and sweet – ice-cream with ‘monkey blood’ (raspberry sauce), physalis, Dolly Mixtures and sherbet straws. We found tropical fruits, red berries, lemon and lime on the palate too – but also an intense pepper and chilli heat that made us all reached for the water. Once reduced, our noses picked up dry grass and chalk, cinder toffee, marshmallows and pear – much more mellow now – and the palate certainly came into its own – mouth-coating and sweet (Danish pastries, cloudy lemonade) with a much more manageable warmth – cinnamon and ginger, then some leather and menthol in the long, sinewy tail.
