    Young & spritelySweet enticements – citric zing

    This nose is delicate as gossamer on a gosling; offering sweet enticements of biscuit assortments and chalky sweets in a kid’s lucky bag; parma violets shift slowly to scented geraniums. The neat palate is more of a mouth-tingling experience of humbugs, liquorice Imps and Victory V’s (a more grown-up sweetness than the nose); it also has a citric zing of lime sweets and popping candy. The reduced nose finds more fruity sweets, nougat and coffee and walnut cake with butter icing. The palate now combines apple strudel and raspberry sauce on vanilla ice-cream with cinnamon, clove and sugar-coated fennel seed warmth.
