The nose drifted from honey, golden syrup and toffee apples to wild flowers, wintergreen and lemongrass, then a waft of wood, a generosity of ginger and traces of toasted coconut. The palate’s butterscotch, barley sugars, Victoria sponge and honey were nicely balanced by pencil shavings, clove, nutmeg and pickled ginger. The reduced nose was summery and bright – green melon, tart lemons, rhubarb rock, polished wood and an old fashioned knapsack (canvas and leather). A pleasant juiciness now crept into the palate – peach, raspberry, apricot and lemon meringue with a warming finish of sanded wood and wax, Black Jack chews and Peshawari naan.
