Nose
Menthol lozenges, candied lemon peel, demerara sugar and patisserie cream.
Palate
Very fruity and feisty on the first sip, with blackberry, pink marshmallows a little liquorice and fresh strawberry.
Finish
Malty and dry, with a distinct wheaty note on the death.
Comment
Solid and drinkable.

Nose
Marzipan, icing sugar and a little distant smoke. Strawberry liqueur sweetness gives way to hot buttered cornbread and barley sugar.
Palate
Needs a little water to open up a bit, but those sweet cornbread and barley sugar notes come shining through. Spices lurk.
Finish
Dries with spices and wood tannins.
Comment
Balanced and well layered, just need a drop of water to help it emerge.
