The nose began most intriguingly… lively and fruit laden yet simultaneously sticky, rich and bountiful. Juicy tropical fruits of mango, ripe pineapple and banana mingled with sugar coated cashews, sticky fig pudding and coconut panna cotta. A joy to behold as we ventured into realms of dark chocolate with black forest gateau and sweet chocolate liqueur mixed with dark cherries and raspberry marshmallow. The viscous and mysterious nature once again became lifted with the appearance of candied mint leaves and Kendal mint cake with the intense sweetness of meringue, Chantilly cream and pink wafers with creamy vanilla ice cream.
