Flavour: Old and dignified
All were delighted by the aroma and flavours of an exotic
temple. Delicately baked stone fruits sprinkled with rosewater, pistachio, cardamom,
then fresh pine and beeswax polish. In the darker corners there was cooling
lychee and cucumber, then and breezy jasmine. Malted digestive biscuits with a
slather of honey and baked pastry added depth. For some, water brought out
lovely clean notes of grape, kiwi, gooseberry and melon. For others, wet slate,
damp dog and rain smattered stone. The finish was crisp green apple and lime
pastilles, warm brown paper, fresh laundry and mint cornetto ice cream.
Drinking tip: As refreshing as rain on summers day.
