The initial nose brought to mind jellybeans, candy floss, pocket-warmed jelly babies, marshmallows and popping candy. A real confectionery shop! In the background, suggestions of wet grass, tree bark and light olive oil all got louder over time. Reduction brought thicker notes of wintergreen, cupboard wood spices, watercress, heather flowers and cough sweet mixtures. The palate was richly sweet initially, lots of gentle oiliness with cloves, orange marmalade, sweetened cough syrups, jasmine tea with sugar and lime curd. When reduced we found grapefruit, cream soda, pineapple chunks, lemon cough drops and rosewater. Some warmth of chilli flakes, myrtle and coriander marmalade in the background.
