Nose
Overripe russet apple,polished oak, pear juice,preserved lemon,boiled sweet (orange Spangles).Lightly spiced. Good.
Palate
Soapiness,sadly,overwhelms what is a gentle softly fruity charmer.
Finish
Clying and soapy.
Comment
A real shame.

Nose
Unusual.Like the “fraise tagada” (candy strawberry).Muesli with dried redfruit (Jordan).
Palate
Sweet and bitter. Again that artificial flavouring taste.More orange drop this time.
Finish
A bit hard. Oaky. A cardboardy touch. Then caramelised nuts and spices.
Comment
Ends better than it starts. Water neutralises the fraise tagada but I still can'tget acquainted !
