Notes

The nose suggested ice-cream wafers and vanilla slice, honeycomb, cinder toffee, chocolate and sweet figs and hints of linseed oil and linoleum. The palate was tasty, interesting and seemed older than its years – sweet and perfumed, with raisins and blackcurrants, fruit loaf, malt loaf and banana split – the finish introducing ginger, chilli, black pepper and charred oak. The reduced nose had fudge, sponge cake and raspberry ripple, with hints of apricot, moist gingerbread and pipe racks. The palate was now softer – the seductive sweetness of peanut brittle, jelly beans and fruit salad chews meets gentle nutmeg and ginger Edinburgh Rock spice.
