Not especially forthcoming. Tends to flat, dusty caramel notes. Waxy and minty.
Sweet and salty. Warming and gingery. Unexpected but definite coastal touches – iodine?
Firm, chewy and ever so slightly phenolic.
Uninspiring nose more than compensated for by challenging and surprising palate. Appetising.
