Description

On the nose – a bit of an ester jester – capering about with apricot jam, pineapple and glue; soft mints, eucalyptus and oak shavings. The palate gave us banana liqueur, apple, pineapple, coconut and vanilla – also some chocolate, salted caramel and ginger ale with lime. The reduced nose seemed to beat the drum for rum and gum – cinnamon baked banana, pear drops, vanilla cream, asafoetida gum, grape juice and wood sap. Water mellowed the palate considerably – now quite fresh, with pink wafers, orange boiled sweets and flowers; coconut cream and spiced honey – the finish a lively mix of menthol, sherbet fizz and cream soda.
