Tasting Notes

The nose combined a sweet serenity (honey, fudge, honeycomb bars) with an aromatic rhapsody of hothouse flowers, eucalyptus, pine needles and tobacco, plus a sharper shaft of sherbet fountains, lemongrass and rhubarb. The palate was sweetly tropical, with soothing spice – playful, yet mature at the same time – butterscotch, stone fruits, sandalwood and a finish of gingerbread, dark chocolate and tobacco strands. The reduced nose gave us marzipan, honey menthol throat sweets and teasing musky floral incense smoke. The palate still had a broad spectrum, from light and breezy (lime juice, perfume, cherries in syrup) to spicy Christmas sweets and exotic wood.
