Description

A varied and complex aroma initially suggested rye breads, sun lotion, sultanas, eucalyptus toothpaste and madeira cake. We also got chocolate bourbon biscuits dipped in old cognac, roasted chestnuts and new leather shoes. Water added a vegetal aspect evoking tomato vines in a greenhouse, clay plant pots, a leather tobacco pouch and hints of liquorice and cocoa powder. The neat palate dazzled with similar complexity - lots of myrtle, spiced lemon marmalade, orange cocktail bitters, shoe leather, coal tar soap and gentle red chilli heat. With reduction there was more gentle vanilla cream soda sweetness, strawberry jam, molten liquorice, green ginger wine, herbal bitters and date molasses. Syrupy, sweet and wonderfully spicy!
