Nose
Nutty. Hazelnuts and dry bracken. Biscuity, then pure passion fruit and orange and apple puree. Pops open after five minutes in the glass and in a rather lovely way. Best left undiluted.
Palate
Calm start. Sweet,with a light pine note. Gentle with a little mango. A smoothie in both senses. Good flow smooth with a spicy lift on the back palate.
Finish
Clean and crisp.
Comment
Would take ice and ginger well. Very good blending.

Nose
Sylvestry. Pine needles on a bed of humus. Pears laced with a fudge sauce. White chocolate.
Palate
Sweet and soft. Fudge sauce,cooked pears. Milk chocolate spiced with cinnamon. And a grain flavour in the background.
Finish
Sherbety. Dry almond and a hint of cinnamon.
Comment
The palate is very sweet and lacks some muscle. But the nose is interesting.
