Nose: Rather floral at first: gentian and lily, cut flower stems, and gorse. This dissipates, leaving banana bread, cocoa, caramel biscuit, and orange peel.
Palate: Medium-full. Wonderful juicy fruit notes of banana and raspberry candies, candied orange, and ginger. Candied lime peel, milk chocolate, raisins, and just a hint of toffee. Underneath, crème brûlée and a touch of thyme.
Finish: Medium-long. Citrus notes linger.
Comment: Vibrant and juicy, but with some elegance. I could drink this all day.
Nose: Crisp green and floral notes, like walking through a wildflower meadow in bloom. Hints of eucalyptus and mint humbug boiled sweets. Some woody spice. Almond frangipane and crisp pastry.
Palate: Full. Sweet pastry, a little toasted almond, and a tropical undercurrent of melon and papaya. Vanilla paste and a little caramel latte. Spice from powdered ginger. Toffee and sugary date chunks.
Finish: Long, on cherry sencha tea and a little caramel sauce.
Comment: Lovely complexity and a subtle but supportive malty backbone.
