An Ottoman tent of delightful aromatics
1st fill ex-bourbon barrel
1 of 231 bottles
The nose was a charming mixture of floral perfumes (jasmine, Parma Violets), sweet citrus (lemon tart, clementines), understated wooden pencil cases and white pepper. The palate had mouth-filling viscosity and flavours of sherbet lemons, Turkish delight, foamy shrimps, toasted pineapple and vanilla tart – we found it intense, floral, waxy, perfumed and lovely. The reduced nose combined orange zest, apple tarts, sherbet straws, vanilla-scented candles, rosewater, lemon and silk – a Turkish Ottoman tent of delightful aromatics. The palate now delivered mouth-coating sweet and perfumed waxiness; honey and soy in a dreamy stir-fry and wasabi and pink pickled ginger to finish.
