Nose
Lemon meringue pie, toasted pine nuts, a hint of nutmeg and truffle.
Palate
Honey, toasted pine nuts, some vanilla marshmallow and sunflower oil. Sweet chamomile tea and a hint of menthol round this off.
Finish
Sweetness wins through, very sweet indeed, actually and this is one that lasts and lasts with vanilla the main component.
Comment
“Sweet Like Tropicana” in the words of the popular rap artist Dizzee Rascal.

Nose
Malty. Butterscotch. Plenty of vanilla. Some barley sugar. Drying hay. Fresh and lively. Opening on light citrus notes. Lemonade. Quite sweet. Water brings out floral notes. Good aromatic evolution.
Palate
Round and silky. Sweet at start but getting fizzy with a sparkling spicy outburst. Drying on ginger and lemon zest.
Finish
Warming, with a biscuity touch.
Comment
Pleasant and refreshing.
