We found sweetness in abundance at first. Many notes of coconut creme brulee, vanilla fudge, lemon icing, shea butter, potted plants, singed raisins and rosehip tea. Water gave us tea tree oil, eucalyptus resin and herbal toothpaste along with beeswax, wet earth, boot polish and a tin of orange car sweets. The palate started off sweet as well with these rather delectable notes of warm brioche and buttered toast before veering off towards saffron, olive oil, milk chocolate, blue ice lollies and a slosh of Malibu. With water there emerged freeze dried raspberries, marshmallow spread, retsina wine, almond paste and coal dust. Before a couple of aniseed balls skittle by along with a scatter of tinned peaches.
