Tasting Notes

Our noses encountered gentle sweetness (spun sugar, fudge, marshmallows dipped in chocolate, and caramel cups with nougat, caramel and a hazelnut, topped with a chocolate button); then we included floral laurels, dried wildflowers, black fruits and cappuccino hints. The palate, although also sweet (honey, icing sugar over strawberries), was not quite so gentle – with pencil shavings, lemon, bitter chocolate, cinnamon and liquorice root. It was back to sweetness on the reduced nose – candy floss, chocolate honeycomb bars and golden meringues, all under a golden cascade of autumnal sunshine and nut-harvest bounty. The palate now sweetened a little, to bourbon biscuits, pineapple and raisins; on the finish, liquorice allsorts and hot cross buns waltzed together over oak boards.
