A stranger in these lands
Flavour Profile:Sweet Fruity & Mellow
A sumptuous and wonderfully dense nose greeted us, full of Juicy Fruit chewing gum, syrupy malt extract, oak vanillin and spiced exotic fruit chutneys. Specific notes of guava, mango puree, flambeed banana and pulpy, overripe papaya. Water added a medicinal thread and brought aromatic notes of sandalwood, ink, beach pebbles, fir cones and myrtle. Intensely complex, deep and hugely captivating. In the mouth we found it wonderfully herbal, oily and textural. This complexity persisted, along with mulling spices, clotted cream, melon cordial, Thai basil, mineral oils, aged green Chartreuse and cinnamon pastries. Water seemed to make it thicker, oilier, with more camphor, hessian, wax, soot and bouillon stock. Savoury notes of miso, cod liver oil and then a reversion to pure exotic fruits caramelising in brown sugar. Sublime!
