The initial nose neat was full of red fruits with raspberries, strawberries and cherries but there was also rosewater, Dundee marmalade and tiramisu. Big and bold on the palate neat, think bitter cocoa and toasted coconut brittle with hints of salted liquorice as well as sweet and salty white chocolate popcorn. Water released a heady musky perfume and a discreet petrol aroma with hints of camphor and white pepper. A lot more balanced now with flavours of candied fennel seeds, roasted butternut squash, coconut custard tart with roasted pineapple and in the finish a subtle dryness of strawberry flavoured liquorice laces.
