Coffee and herbal notes leap out of the glass, with floral scented candles, gooseberries, salted caramel, candied and fresh orange, spiced sponge cake and spiced butter following. As it sits in the glass, more delicate flavours appear, with white grape, honeydew melon and lychee, as well as a touch of cinnamon spice.
Palate: Light and delicate, with milky coffee, cherry, speculaas biscuits and some gentle charcoal smoke. It’s also quite fruity and spicy, with sharp pineapple and apple chews joined by cinnamon syrup and oak. It slowly develops over five to ten minutes to reveal more sponge cake notes, as well as fresh cut oak and green leaves.
Finish: Earth, gentle wood spice and very old, polished oak.
