The nose had something intriguingly dusty and woody – wardrobe interiors, attics or old-fashioned weaving looms, with the sweetness of custard Danish, Bounty bars, dolly mixtures, Black Forest gateaux and Oddfellows spicy sweets. The palate also combined wood spice and sweetness – peppercorns, charred casks, ginger snaps, and raspberry jam pips against Acacia honey, toffee, Oreos and pears poached in wine with a Demerara crunch. The reduced nose turned slightly earthy – autumn leaves, oloroso sherry and rum-soaked raisins – marshmallow teacakes, syrup tart and pain au chocolat. The palate now offered Fry’s Turkish Delight, cappuccino, brandy snaps and plenty of nutmeg, ginger and cinnamon.
