The inviting nose starts with clean riverbank aromas, then finds yellow plums and kirsch – it sweetens gradually to marzipan, apricot Danish, Dolly Mixtures and dark chocolate. The palate is warming and sweet – lemon curd on scones, Battenberg cake and marshmallows, with an intriguing tingling finish of iced gingerbread, sour apple sweets, lemon peel and menthol. The reduced nose is urbane and lovable – rose Turkish Delight and marmalade cake, becoming gently effervescent (Refreshers, popping candy). The palate now is sweet and fruity (pineapple, mango, passion fruit) with a mixture of light fizz (purple pastilles, Creamola Foam) and warm satisfying spice to finish.
