Notes

An interesting nose! Sweet, fruity and floral, with custard creams, refreshers, and lemon sponge-cake, but also something almost earthy, like greenhouses, vanilla pipe tobacco or woollen socks drying by the fire. The palate combined separate strands – sweetness (Victoria sponge, tinned peaches, Dolly Mixtures, wine gums), wood (balsa, cedar, wood-sap, eucalyptus) and spice (cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, peppercorns). The reduced nose evoked warm sauna wood, a model- maker’s work-bench and a pine forest floor – all very relaxing and easy-going. The palate still had the wood and the spice, but it seemed sweeter (fruit salad chews, honey, vanilla ice-cream, blueberry muffins); altogether more enjoyable.
