Rich, golden honey trickled from honeycomb onto bruised apples and pears that lay scattered beneath. Floral notes of blossom and sandalwood combined with linseed oil and the fragrance of armagnac before fresh tobacco leaves and macaroons merged with apple crumble. The palate combined ginger spice with spearmint for a fresh appeal before moving to figs, gooseberries and digestive biscuits. With water we found light olive oil and flowers arranged in a church with the aromas of incense and cedar wood. Then apricot jam was served on brioche bread before grilled pineapple arrived with whipped cream. Delightful beeswax polish textures covered seasoned oak and polished pine as we enjoyed a finish bound by cinnamon and fine wood tannins.
