Notes

Aromas greeted us with the soothing nature of a hot bath as honeysuckle and butterscotch fused with spicy nutmeg and dark chocolate. Rich and soft fruits embraced ripe melon, banana and guava whilst light flickered on the water from heavy wax candles. On the tongue it was vanilla, coconut and maple syrup that emerged first, closely followed by nougat, caramel and custard. Flavours became even more juicy with water, as ripe pears joined mango and watermelon before oak aged cider married with cola cubes and marzipan. Finally, sultanas soaked in a bath of brandy blended with the big spices of nutmeg and cinnamon and led onto a finish that appeared to be never-ending.
