Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Very intensely perfumed, like a florist's shop full of lilies and roses on a hot day. There is a sweet cream edge here too.
Palate: That perfume note is more musky, almost incense. Dark fruits and some espresso notes. A little oily as well.
Finish: Long and warming.
Comment: Great stuff, keeps your taste buds working hard.
Taster   Gavin D. Smith
Nose: Oily, gentle and smooth, with rose petals and milk chocolate-coated Turkish Delight.
Palate: Greener than the nose suggests, but with a carry-over of milk chocolate.
Finish: Quite lengthy, slightly smoky with ginger compote.
Comment: The nose is pure confectionary, while the palate introduces a more masculine note.
