Notes from the bottlers... Profile: the deep initial nose wavers between spices (pepper), camphor, chilli and heady florals (geranium). Allowed to breathe, it becomes vegetal (sugarcane) and tertiary (mushroom). The lively attack is characterized by notes of pipe tobacco, gillyflower and spice (curry). The more unctuous mid-palate is milky (coconut), honeyed (bay leaf) and syrupy (cane sugar). The long finish is oriental (Turkish delight) and apricoty. Ginger gradually coats the sides of the mouth. 59.2% Alc./Vol.
