A trip to the confectioner’s.
Track 3: Purple Haze
No age statement
Nose: Oil paints, pencil shavings, and lemon-lime boiled sweets. Tangerine juice, fresh fudge, and Cadbury’s Fruit and Nut.
Palate: Medium-full. Terry’s Chocolate Orange, toffee, and baked red apple.
Finish: Medium. The juicy fruits fade and chocolate orange remains.
Comment: A trip to the confectioner’s.
Nose: Sweet spiced carrot cake with cream-cheese filling. Caramel macchiato coffee. Toasted pecan and prune. A thick, oily strip of orange peel. A touch of salty Ibérico ham.
Palate: Full. Marmite and butter on wholemeal toast. Runny chocolate ganache and honeycomb pieces. Glacé cherry and bitter orange marmalade. Hints of strong espresso and sweet paprika.
Finish: Long, on marmalade and chocolate-dipped honeycomb. Parting hint of grassy spice.
Comment: Rich and balanced – couldn’t ask for much more.
