Notes

The nose had a subtle dryness (‘like a shoe-shine stand’, someone said) but it was mainly sweet and fruity – butter shortbread, creamy vanilla, rice crispy cake, marshmallow, marzipan and chocolate orange creams. A similar pattern on the taste – juicy orange marmalade, sherbet and brown sugar, with the dryness coming out in the finish – black tea, leather, spiced nuts and oak. With water the nose became more delicate – caramel, toffee, coconut, orchard fruits and lemon puff biscuits; hints of canvas and varnished wood. The palate became more perfumed – damson crumble, pineapple sprinkled with salt and chilli and an interesting ginger and orange combination.
