Description

Some lovely initial aromas included cloudy cider, haystacks, mint chewing gum and Turkish delight. We also noted rosehip tea, cough medicine and pollen-heavy lilies. A splash of water revealed a firm chalky side, with aromas of waxed canvas, dried yellow flowers, white tea and mineral oils. When neat the palate had a warmth of pink peppercorns, oatmeal flapjack, dried apricot and toasted sunflower seeds. Reduction brought out plain popcorn, white mushrooms, turmeric, suet and peppery watercress. Elegant, subtle and very pleasing.
