The nose was a sweet treat for the senses – Turkish delight, lemon drizzle cake, butterscotch, sugared almonds, marshmallows and figs, with added layers of incense sticks, hyacinths and polished cedar. The palate combined classic nutty sweetness with a spicy finish – pecan pie, dried apple, nougat, Cadburys Whole Nut and honey drizzled figs and walnuts – the spice included cinnamon, ginger and five spice, coffee bean and black tea. The reduced nose gave us mashed banana on toast, chocolate éclairs and a freshly scented sauna. The still mouth-warming palate contained brown sugar, lemon curd and candy-coated chocolates, toasted pistachios, gingerbread and cardamom.
