Venus in furs

The Panel drew images of a foxy silver haired lady; wearing a musty fur coat. On the nose the panel was pleasantly greeted with scents of a traditional perfume containing musk. Then with a gentle caress on our cheek with butter soft leather gloves. On the palate we found the rich flavour of well matured Dundee cake washed down with blackcurrant cordial. With water on the nose we found there was a medley of orange bitters mixed with dark chocolate’ high in cocoa content to the point of being almost gravelly in consistency. One panellist found themselves stuck in a hedge with hooves, horse shoes and fresh mud galloping away on the finish! It was almost all over too soon.
