Nose
A real acetone-y pear drop note dominates here. Banana-flavoured fudge, crème pâtissière and pastry vie for attention in the background. Adding water brings out a mandarin core.
Palate
Lovely balance, this is taut yet full-flavoured. All the aromas play out on the palate which turns rather spicy and peppery.
Finish
The initial exuberance settles down into a warming embrace, accompanied by banana custard.
Comment
A youthful drop that dances across the tongue.

Nose
Tart summer fruits: redcurrants, blackcurrants. In the greenhouse: tomatoes and floral notes hiding behind heather honey and mild oak. Dried apricots and sultanas.
Palate
Spicy and warming. Peppers, chillies, nutmeg and cloves. Candied fruits. Strawberry jam. Green apples, elderberry and brine. Digestive biscuits dunked in tea.
Finish
Warming peppers and chillies, with citrus and brine, before tea returns.
Comment
Skilfully assembled. Elemental. Swaggers with attitude and character.
