A strongly perfumed start embraced fine cologne with complex notes of dried lavender, orange blossom and jasmine. Puffs of dust suggested scented talcum powder and Turkish delight dipped in icing sugar while soft oils emerged like melted butter on toast. A prickly palate brought wasabi and rum-soaked sultanas before sweetening to fudge, digestive biscuits and sticky toffee apples with flambéed banana. Greener nuances appeared with water as we foraged between hay bales and undergrowth to find blackberries and cranberries with new oak. Delicate wafts of jasmine tea once again joined lavender bushes but now with black cherries, liquorice sweets and dried apricots on a bed of dry oak and dark chocolate.
