Anmerkungen

The nose was so delightful, we almost forgot to taste it! Sandalwood oil, polished wood, corn candies, and lots of orange – orange jelly, orange sherbet, Cremola Foam etc. The palate was also agreeable – sweet and syrupy, with toffee apples, pears in honey, spun sugar and orange liqueur – but built on solid foundations of good wood – nutmeg, mace, liquorice and hints of leather. The reduced nose found fleeting magic balloons, then back to maple syrup, banana chips, barley sugars, dried apple and orange zest. The palate was now easy-drinking and mellow, but with an engaging bitter-sweet complexity – chicory coffee, blackcurrant and humbugs.
