OLFACTORY SENSORY ANALYSIS: lovely tongue-coating malt caramel, yellow plum sticky and juicy yet not over-mature, raisin cream which sparkles with mint and oriental spices, chief amongst them saffron. It could only have the viscosity and unctuousness that it offers, nothing less. on the nose, advertised with such sparkling visual brilliance, a delicious intense fruit; rich, balsamic, even minty in it’s vivacity. A consistency wildly rich yet still impressively powerful. As the flavour develops, one tastes orange blossom at the height of it’s season; a mint icing which piles on sweetness and aromatic layers; sticky, fat, scrumptious raisins. Fruit is ever-present, in many of it’s forms, both on the nose and the palate, juxtaposed with the glorious placidity of camomile and honey. The heavy and luxurious balsamic and vanilla spices at times refresh, at times break out, but are always dominated by the thick, soft, sumptuously sweet fruit.
