SMWS Panel Notes
Aromas arrived with a peppery tingle, a combination of chili chocolate and peppercorns that drifted towards carnations but with overtones of beeswax polish and dripping candles. On the tongue it was a step back in time with all the fun of the fair, spinning on wooden rides with the sweet character of candy floss and toffee apples heavy in the air. Honey and vanilla merged into digestive biscuits and oily notes suggested creamy ghee.
Water released more confected characters of lemon drops and barley sugars that had stuck to the polished wooden decking of a Waltzer fairground ride. Waxed lemons came through beside ripe pineapple and melon, whilst on the palate more pronounced oaky notes took hold.
