A juicy and easy sweetness at first with notes of milk bottle sweeties, candy floss and pink marshmallows all on display. Then we got coconut water, gorse flower, potpourri, meadow flowers and flying saucers without the sherbet. Reduction brought white chocolate mice, honey and lemon lozenges, starched linens, old custard creams smashed up in a metal biscuit tin and warm potting sheds. The palate showed peach schnapps, heather honey, new world IPA, lime zest, light herbal teas, ginger biscuits and barley sugars. Water brought crab apples, green plums, star fruits, kiwi, pine needles, white jellybeans and shilling ales. Some vanilla cream in the aftertaste.
