A rich and heady aroma that heavily suggested malt load with sultana and chopped date at first. Also fig rolls, tobacco leaf, earthy potting shed vibes and heady summer flowers weighted with pollen. Water brought more left field aromas like plasticine, wintergreen, vase water and verbena. Indeed, it became altogether more medical with wintergreen and wormwood notes abound. The palate was initially richly bready and thick. Fresh brown bread, mentholated chewing gum, fennel, toasted pine nuts and Weetabix drizzled with golden syrup. Reduction brought dried banana chips, trail mix, plain scone dough, mossy tree bark and yellow gorse flower. Rich, complex and satisfying.
