A lovely initial aroma that evoked tobacco pouches and ester-rich exotic fruits. Melon, mango, lychee and floral rosewater. Also noted were roasted peaches, cinnamon buns, flower honey and hessian. Reduction brought more blossom, strawberry sherbet, tart fruits like gooseberry, dried heather and chopped walnuts. The mouth was initially fruit-forwards with raspberry and strawberry bonbons, then apricot, honey granola and lemon balm. With water we found more heady vanilla, flapjack, old dessert wines, white chocolate and custard slices with strawberry drizzle.
