Nose
White chocolate, eggnog, orchids, foxgloves...this is a real delight of a nose.
Palate
Charming in the mouth with more white chocolate (Milkybar end of the scale), some bitter cherry stones, a hint of Mozart chocolate bitters and a bit of raw rhubarb.
Finish
Rasberry pavlova, salted liquorice, caramel and milk chocolate.
Comment
Like walking into a French pâtisserie in a small rural Gascony village.

Nose
Summer berry fruits and Bakewell tart with raspberry and marzipan. Becomes more fragrant with water yielding old rose and chalky sweets (Edinburgh Rock).
Palate
Warm hickory wood and rosehip syrup, blackcurrant liqueur then roasted sweet pepper, and sweet potato wedges. Slightly medicinal.
Finish
Chewy and soothing.
