This bottle is limited to 1 per member

A big nose of sweet buttery biscuits and shortbread merged with apples, peaches and pears while delicate floral aromas suggested lilacs and honeysuckle. Syrup textures and melted white chocolate coated the palate as pears poached in rum brought a spicy warmth and hints of molasses on marshmallows, vanilla ice cream and oak. A dash of water released a torrent of intense orange and strawberry essence. The chocolate hard darkened and joined tobacco leaves dusted with cocoa powder as pure sugar cane juice poured over tinned peaches. The ice cream had now melted into a pool around watermelon and grapefruit before we were left with hibiscus flowers, jasmine tea and coffee grounds.
