Notes

Mellow fruits flood the nose with interest and enchantment – pears, plums, peaches, banana liqueur and sherbet lemons; then evasive hints of hazelnuts and sesame seeds slip in silently from the side. The palate combines dreamy crème anglaise and comforting apple pie with relaxing camomile, before the forbidden pleasures of chocolate and tobacco seduce the finish. The reduced nose is a fantasy walk through a sweet shop (popping candy, sherbet strawberries, campinos). The palate now delights the mouth with sweet textures and flavours of lemon drizzle cake, Victoria sponge and Battenberg slice; then the finish finds whole almonds and apple pips.
