The nose, for one panellist, was a wardrobe full of perfumed ladies clothes but another recalled ‘haying time, sun-warmed hay and fruit pies (apple, bramble, raspberry) on wooden tables’. The palate evoked bourbon, Curiosity Cola and a sweet/tangy collaboration of Peach Melba, lemon meringue pie and Sherbet Fountains. The reduced nose was still a lucky dip – fuzzy peach, apricot and pear drops, jasmine and laundry, tobacco pouches, golden syrup biscuits and icing licked off a wooden spoon. The palate now combined kumquat and lychee stone with butterscotch and shortbread sweetness and the gentle heat of pink sushi ginger and cinnamon spice.
