One to put down for the dessert list, would be curious to put this with a panna cotta.
A Tale of Cake
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Like opening a box of chocolates, those Belgian seashell ones. A mix of milk and white chocolate, praline and sesame wafers. There’s some orchard fruit compote here too.
Palate: Follows the nose closely with bags of toffee penny sweetness and chocolate drops. There’s apples in honey and dark cherries covered in syrup.
Finish: Coats the mouth, viscous and clingy.
Comment: One to put down for the dessert list, would be curious to put this with a panna cotta.
Nose: Wonderfully aromatic and tropical. Over-ripe mangoes and pineapples, papaya and a sweet maltiness under it all. Milk and honey, with a little nutmeg and cinnamon. Frosted wheat flakes. Raspberries dipped in milk chocolate and hazelnut sauce.
Palate: Complex and well integrated. Bags of over-ripe tropical character. Pineapple upside down cake, glacé cherries, marzipan and white chocolate. Think of butter stollen!
Finish: It just goes on and on and on...
Comment: I struggled to put this one down!
