Nose
Floral up front, lavender and cherry blossom, fresh daffodils and snow drops. Almond pastries with apricot jam, A meaty edge, air dried ham and sundried tomato. Wood tannins.
Palate
That floral leading edge continues followed by the meat. Then huge spices develop, cardamom, cinnamon, then everything ends on Parma Violets.
Finish
Really oily and coating with those Parma Violets and cherry lips sweetie.
Comment
Very yummy stuff indeed. So heady at first with those floral notes it really is a treat.

Nose
Vanilla up front– but than lashings of flambe? fruit. A little acetone and those fruit-salad sweet chews. Apricots, cherries. Yum.
Palate
Big ol' spices welcome you in, before the fruit-salad rears its head in the background. A slightly oily mouthfeel.
Finish
More of those fruit-salad chews, but becomes cleansing with a herbal, menthol finish.
Comment
A little surprising, but might not appeal to the purists. Not hugely layered or complex, but pretty tasty and sometimes that's okay.
