The nose was earthy and sweet, like wrinkled apples lying on autumn leaves – also polished shoe leather, liquorice, melon and marzipan pastries. The palate was strong, lively and effervescent – slightly acidic travel sweets, with pencil shavings and some fiery curry and lime pickle spice that got our tongues twerking behind our teeth. The reduced nose had sugar-dusted lemon Turkish Delight, Battenberg, vanilla and sweetie cigarettes; one panellist imagined ‘leather luggage on a wooden sledge in the snow’. The palate was now juicy (lime fruit pastilles, raspberry Pavlova) and the spice a little tamer and sweeter – cinnamon toast and Liquorice Allsorts.
