The nose opened slowly, like a cut tulip – pears, apples, apricots and candied peel; toffee, treacle tarts and sweet sherry, then pandrops, eucalyptus and something vaguely like an antique shop. The palate, on the other hand, was rather big and bold – toffee, butterscotch, vanilla and Jaffa cake sweetness; intense spice (Fisherman’s Friends); menthol, leather and tobacco, with new wood to finish. The reduced nose discovered musky, aromatic powder puff, millionaire short-cake, Bounty bars and chocolate Brazils. The palate was now totally pleasant and rewarding – marmalade, crème caramel and flambéed bananas, with ginger, cinnamon and clove providing warmth and a dry finish.
