We thought the nose complex – fruity and woody (blackcurrant bush, balsa wood, pine nuts, lemongrass, peach stone) with some butter pastry, Chinese five-spice and paint. The neat palate delivered sweet fruit flans – e.g. gooseberry tart and apricot Danish, with light chilli tingles at the end. The reduced nose combined furniture polish, cake dough and sultanas in brandy with a zesty, sherbety aspect of tart pineapple and Cranachan*. Even in reduction, we found the palate quite intense – some ginger and wasabi warmth, but mainly a very tasty and more-ish sweet and sour sensation of marmalade, sour apple sweets and Haribo sour worms. (*Scottish dessert combining honey, cream, whisky, oatmeal and raspberries)
