- Aha. Now I also know that you should take the name very literally. "Perfume, Paper and Polished Wood" - that fits really well. I was told that it was suitable for "on the rocks". That could also fit. Maybe I'll try it! ... Is there a bunch of flowers somewhere? Thanks to the noble donor - was an experience!
with some water: flower shop! Roses, roses, daisies, roses, flower cut, cloves, vanilla, honey, freshly beaten, slightly resinous wood and sawdust, chervil, parsley, lovage, white wine, lemon, pudding with cherries. After 20 minutes also grapefruit. Later always whiter wine.
waxy-oily. White wine. Pepper. Grapefruit. Resinous fresh wood. First pour some more water. There is furniture polish on your tongue! Or paint? Since the name is probably program. The roses also spread in the mouth in the form of astringent rose flower tea. Crazy. With more water, the impression is indeed enriched with vanilla and some sweetness, but almost immediately comes back to the Riesling impression ... Now the malt smells mostly Riesling. Another sip brings back the cherry pudding, also more sweetness, supported by ginger and backed with toffee. The wine note is now small, but it has also landed some water in the malt. Now he is tamer, now come to the pepper again cloves and some coffee added.
Short to medium. The vanilla is stronger, the malt quickly dries mouth and palate. The roses are still in the background, now more sticky than perfume on the palate, as are the herbs and the flower cut. Pepper and white wine fade ...
- SMWS tasting notes:
The nose combined perfumed elements (rose petals, incense) with butterscotch and Baklava, pleasant fruity sweetness (Turkish Delight, dried apple rings, fruit jellies), vanilla, waxed paper and pine. The unreduced palate somehow reconciled intense sweetness (toffee, caramel, thick honey, vanilla pastries) with more subtle tastes of paper, wood, lemon peel and spices. The reduced nose became even fruitier (sherbet lemon, dark cherry, strawberry, grapefruit, vintage Riesling) with polished wood, herb gardens and millionaire’s shortcake. The palate now combined honey on toast and vanilla custard with some dark fruits, banana chips, red liquorice and fresh herbs. A fresh dram, suitable as an aperitif.
