The key note on the nose was perfumed, floral and summery (meadows, hedgerows, nosegays) but we also got old-fashioned confectionery, Christmas cake, tea chests and deep leather sofas. It was fruit that first jumped out of the palate – pear and passion-fruit, blackcurrant sorbet and figs in syrup; then marshmallow and chocolate sweetness arrived, leaving deeper notes of cinnamon, leather and tobacco on the finish. The reduced nose – jam donuts, Black Forest gateau, pears Belle Helene, Amarena cherries and fruit and nut chocolate. The palate now balanced perfumed sweetness (fruit crumble, blackberry yoghurt) with menthol and tobacco tannins on the after-taste.
