After the initial whiff of a struck match and a distant firework the nose turned fresh and floral like a rose bush after an April shower. With time deeper and warmer aromas appear like beeswax, vanilla pods, and chocolate chip cookies. The taste is creamy and buttery reminiscence of honey and maple syrup on French crepes. With the addition of water we enter a cake shop with pastries, fruit cakes, sherry trifles and raisin loaves all covered in icing sugar. The taste does make you smile like eating a hot fruit raisin buttered scone or Cornish Clotted Cream Ice Cream dipped in dark Bournville chocolate. This distillery has had only 5 managers since it opened its doors in 1897.
