    SMWS Tasting Notes: This noses beyond its years – heady, deep and perfumed – thick cut marmalade, lemon balm, rhubarb rock, apricot jam and Turkish delight – all complicated by mint, leather, tobacco and new carpets. The palate also exemplifies great maturation – soft and fruity, yet deep and dark – sherbet straws, passion-fruit jelly, maraschino cherries, raspberry jam, sherbet straws and Battenberg; with vanilla and gentle spice heat. Water brings floral notes to the nose – dark chocolate, mango and tutti-frutti, between the perfume and haberdashery departments at John Lewis’s. The palate now – enticing and rewarding, easy but complex – chocolate Swiss roll, orchard fruits and rose and violet creams.
