Bottle limited to 2 per member

A soft nose introduced oily elements of croissants and ghee with poached fruit, butterscotch and acacia honey. A whiff of maritime breeze brought mature oak and milk chocolate biscuits while on the palate we noted a warm gingery tingle that touched on peppermint. Linseed oil covered chewy wood and conjured memories of standing at the edge of the pier with a cup of green tea and custard cream biscuits. Water lifted the oak to release perfumed candles and the ripe fruits of apple, banana and mango. Vanilla flavours veered us towards crème caramel, cinder toffee and honeycomb before being joined by rhubarb crumble, cinnamon and nutmeg. A freshness remained of salty air and menthol tobacco while a long finish combined oak staves, green apples and clotted cream.
