The initial nose was one of putty and clay on waxed canvass. Then baking parchments, soda bread, crushed chalk, white pebbles, sea greens, pineapple jelly and gorse flowers. A big spoon of honey stirred into some salty porridge. Reduction brought a light sootiness and some brighter, more direct waxy tones. Hints of mirabelle, condensed milk and green tea with lemon. The palate was initially rather light and playful with notes of juniper, violet sorbet, mint julep, lemon icing and fabric softener. Starched linens and breakfast cereals dusted with icing sugar. With water we got wildflowers, bubble-gum and a concentrated note of geraniums in a hot greenhouse. Some mustard warmth and bubble-gum fruitiness in the aftertaste.
