Colour: Clementine gold
The nose ticked various boxes – a mixed box of Matchmakers
(coffee, orange and mint chocolates) and a tin of coloured pencils; also peach,
vanilla, iced caramels, lychees, canvas, sawdust and sandalwood. The neat
palate had something of the ice-cream parlour – iced coffee, vanilla milk shakes,
tutti-frutti, fruits of the forest, cinnamon and newish oak-wood counters. With
water, the nose cargo was lemon drops, flumps, blue raspberry sweets,
pear-drops, candy floss and Tizer, all contained in reassuring crates of wood.
The reduced palate – pomegranate, runny honey, vanilla, coffee and a box of
Cadbury’s Milk Tray. Made in the Royal Burgh of Tain.
