The nose got one panellist imagining he was enjoying banana bread, jammy dodgers and lemonade, after applying Danish oil to his oak front door. The palate was a citric firecracker; orange oil, lemon zest and mandarin cheesecake, which then flooded with spice heat; white pepper, cinnamon, clove, pickled ginger and wasabi. On the reduced nose we got more sweet citrus, lemon drizzle cake, lemon barley water and orange blossom, trifle, marrons glacés and car wash shammy leather. The reduced palate was now creamier, raspberry ripple ice-cream perhaps, with lemon and ginger, tobacco and wood on the lovely, long-lasting finish.
