A nose full of ripe bananas and pears carried us towards salted caramel and treacle with a little side hustle of heavy cask char and almond oil. A moderate inferno on the tongue softened to cinnamon and ginger with sweet syrup and a curious amalgamation of tobacco leaves, cocoa nibs and bitter orange oil. More fragrant with water we now found rose petals and vanilla rubbing shoulders with buttered fruit loaf, hazelnuts and bananas flambeed in navy rum. A much more gentle palate now embraced creamy textures that coated toffee apples and green herbal flavours. Heavy cask char remained alongside crushed walnuts, singed pineapple and dry oloroso sherry on the finish.
