We found this one immediately classical and enticing with everything youd expect from this great make: white fruit jams, stone fruits, lychee, kumquat, melon, papaya and Juicy Fruit chewing gum. A punchy scent of cask char, honeycomb and star anise evolving towards waxes and light medicines. Reduction brought dried heather, cereals, sunflower oils, pollens, starchy linen and earthy potting sheds. The palate showed an immediate and nourishing spiciness. Then madeira cake, mineral oil, sweet waxiness and heather honey. Reduction ushered the fruits back in and gave us fruit salad juices, ripe mango, pineapple syrup and exotic fruit chutneys. A wee pink wafer biscuit to send us on our way.
