Dessert has arrived. Stewed fruits, we are in bramble country. Countryside pies, bramble, blackcurrant, raspberry, Blackberry all thrown together in a pastry and baked, the aroma coming from the oven is enchanting. Milk chocolate with a gentle spice ontop, some honeyed apple sponge cake also on the plate.
With time new dimensions in the nose, maraschino cherries, getting better with time.
Brown sugar followed immediately by a big blast of spice, plenty of tingling on the tongue from nutmeg and cinnamon. Nuttiness coming in quickly, holding on palate starts to bring some sweetness, that pie filling is creeping in.
Finish is caramel, muscavado sugar, chocolate and oak. Very long finish.
