Nose: Gives nothing away apart from a vague toffee note. Cherry blossom, caramel and vanilla toffees. Fresh air dried washing and then some sugared almonds.
Palate: Lots of sweetness, mandarin juice, tinned tropical fruit and Tip Top cream. Vanilla laden sugar. Banana bread and brandy snap biscuits.
Finish: Quite timid, disappears quickly leaving that great toffee sweetness.
