Description

The nose kicked off with youthful cockiness – the sweetness of vanilla panna cotta and salted caramel, good fruitiness (custard apple, cassis, tinned mandarin and pear) and something of forest floor and tree bark. The palate had plenty of sweet treats (foamy bananas, pink wafers and Swiss roll) with very restrained spice (cinnamon and Jamaica ginger cake) supplying satisfying warmth. The reduced nose got richer and deeper – sweet pipe tobacco and cigar boxes, dulce de leche and rum truffles. The reduced palate was not particularly complex but very drinkable indeed – balanced and moreish; tongue-tingling mint humbugs and lip-smacking strawberry tarts and vanilla.
