Notes

Soft and easy, sweet and attractive – the nose offered chocolate caramels, Tunnock’s snowballs, toffee apples, butterscotch and vanilla ice-cream, with perry, cherry and gooseberry fruitiness and oak shavings tucked in behind. The palate also had lovely sweetness (toffee, chocolate, strawberry Chewits, rum and raisin ice-cream) – finely balanced by light, warm woody spice, fresh oak and lino cuts. The reduced nose discovered tropical fruits (lemon, lime, mango, passion fruit, tangerine) and pleasing woody notes (eucalyptus, pine forest, balsa). The reduced palate found ripe pear, barley sugars, golden syrup and bran flakes – sweetly attractive with a wooden sub-structure and interesting intrusions of fruit.
