This nose combined savoury and woody impressions, like charcuterie on wooden serving boards or ‘pulling nori from miso soup with wooden chopsticks’ – it also had citrus fruits, iced gems and rhubarb rock. The palate was a two stage stonker – zingy and citric (lemon and lime sweets, unripe plums, apple strudel) with spicy warmth later (sweet chilli, cinnamon, clove, five spice). The reduced nose found sherbet straws, Liquorice Allsorts, shortbread and porridge with honey and almond flakes. The palate was sweet with a spicy kick – apricot jam, Battenberg cake, cinnamon raisin bagels, chilli chocolate; then liquorice and Victory V heat to finish.
