Nosing this neat, a variety of pictures came to our minds including boysenberry and almond granola clusters, rum and raisin fudge, bramble mille-feuille and pomegranate molasses. On tasting, one panellist was reminded of eating smoked burrata with beetroot and pickled greengages, while others were thinking of over-ripe red apples, pine sap and ice-cream wafers. Following the addition of water, the aroma changed to potpourri with a few drops of fragrant essential oils which could be frankincense and myrrh or lavender and honeysuckle. There was definitely a pinch of salt on the palate, like in porridge or saltwater taffy.
