Little did we know what a treat we were in for as initial aromas suggested tropical fruits, glace cherries and Hungarian dessert wine before coconut husk and pencil shavings joined sugar-coated almonds. The palate was delightfully concentrated and bold, as honeycomb and caramel wafers mixed with orange peel, chocolate truffles and warm apple strudel served with rum and raisin ice cream. The smallest dash of water released a heavenly blend of orchard blossom, banana and caramel while marzipan morphed into intense juicy fruit. The palate was now majestic, a unique amalgamation of custard powder on baked apples and clotted cream with maraschino cherries and old calvados.
