Notes

The initial nose was bright, with vanilla custard slice, lemon drizzle cake, lime marmalade and Williams schnapps; then some waxed wood and crepe bandages appeared, hints of spearmint chews leading to a toffee and butterscotch resolution. The front of the palate had glazed donuts and toffee chocolate éclairs, slowly morphing into chilli chocolate, after which the finish warmed with ginger, dry oak and curry leaf. The reduced nose combined Oreos and fudge with pipe tobacco, polished leather and drying woolly socks. The palate balanced rum and raisin ice-cream and Demerara sweetness with the tingle of wintergreen, black tea, salted apple slices and starfruit.
