Nose
Set honey. Fragrant.
Palate
Minty. First peppermint creams, then leafy garden mint.
Finish
Bitter chocolate.
Comment
Sophisticated flavours in a delicate structure. Like elaborate petits-fours.

Nose
Creamy porridge with honey, then baked apples and apricots take over.
Palate
Luscious, syrupy texture with nuances of digestive biscuits, thick set honey, créme brûlée, gingerbread and dried fruit.
Finish
Digestive biscuit dryness and créme brûlée sweetness, with a final flourish of dried fruit.
Comment
A mellow character with integrated flavours rather than an individual sequence.
