A childhood favourite for many came to mind on the nose neat; banana split with pineapple or as it is also called, an all-American banana split. The ingredients are banana, pineapple chunks, vanilla and chocolate ice cream, whipped cream, chopped peanuts, chocolate syrup and a couple of Maraschino cherries. On the palate two ‘sucky-sweets’ came to mind; pine sap pastilles La Vosgienne and Ricola revitalizing herb drops with an effervescent lemon zest centre. Water elevated the aroma to fairy cakes with a lemon icing, strawberry coulis, buttery shortbread and Battenberg cake, while to taste - lemon Angel Delight with a fizzy ginger and oak flavoured prosecco in the finish.
