Nose
Like making an Airfix model: Humbrol enamel paint and glue. There's strawberry jam, but also lots of oily wood –almost greasy/dripping. There's a soapy back note. Slightly better with water ... but ..
Palate
Oily and soapy at the same time. A bit of a jumble of flavours. Some vanilla with water but also the soapiness takes charge alongside dried flowers. Distinctly odd.
Finish
Am I blowing bubbles?
Comment
Unbalanced.

Nose
Early stewed vegetable nose, but with crab apples, damp Autumn leaves and some caramel notes. Finally sweet tangerine peel. A lot going on here.
Palate
Big, rich and sweet, with baked peach in cream, root ginger and banana toffee notes.
Finish
The fruit stays the course and the finish is full and sweet.
Comment
Really? Have my taste buds gone on holiday a couple of days early? Never been a fan but this is a little darling.
