The nose carries fragrant blossom, deep Pedro Ximinez notes as well as sweet, rich rolling tobacco. There’s treacle spiced buns, rum and raisin fudge, dates, blackcurrants and spices galore. Espresso with lots of brown sugar was quickly replaced and complimented by coffee cream dark chocolates. To taste we found kirsch cocktails with burnt orange skin, liquorice, caraway seeds and teriyaki glaze. “It has everything!” Water brought out cider brandy notes, with cranberries, polished wood, mulled port, boozy fruitcake and rolling tobacco all contributing to the party. Spicy and tannic to finish, we found the sweet meatiness of slow cooked pork.
