The panel jumped straight in and found treacle tart, baked prunes, smoked paprika, cinnamon and plums. Bubbles of aroma popped on the nose with heather, toasted brioche, walnut oil and fragrant bergamot. One felt it bracing like sea air after a dip. The taste was curiously herbaceous with bamboo shoots and wicker cane. A bracing picnic of jacket potatoes, sultana cake, coffee chocolate fudge and black tea from a billy can. Old fashioned canvas tents and camphor reminded one of Scottish holidays. A good dram to have once you had bagged a Munro. Not complicated but ticked all the boxes.
