TITLE: Comfort in a glass / 心地よい一杯


The nose wafted attractive sweetness (macaroon bar, Toffifee, butterscotch) and the polished wood, leather and hessian gave it a bit of a gentleman’s club vibe. The palate delivered vanilla fudge, golden syrup and spun sugar, crystallised ginger and buttery cinnamon biscuits; the finish had a lick of tree bark and tobacco strand earthiness. On the reduced nose we got Peach Melba, banana split and Turkish delight, hay, honey, almond and mahogany. The sweetly soothing palate was comfort in a glass; zesty orange and lemon, candy-coated chocolate and Black Forest gateau, with subtle leather, dates, ginger, chilli and oak on the finish.
