Description

A Cognac which presents a highly varnished nose at first. Elements of shoe polish, gum drops and old horse stables with undercurrents of molasses and stewed sultanas. Flambéd banana, poached pear and even a ‘vroom’ of exhaust. Only one or two drops of water reveal bramble jelly, coal dust and maraschino syrup. The arrival in the mouth is hot but quickly syrupy and redolent with treacle tart and shortcrust pastry. A whole tin of shoe polish smears itself across the tongue. Then dried cranberries, corn biscuits and pastis all follow. Water brings notes of throat lozenges, sunflower oil and tart gooseberry.
