Old gold, lightly oily. Good beading.
Dense and mellow. Compellingly simple. Waxy, then slow sweet, gingery cake above traces of lemon zest, honey and fresh mint on ripe red apple. Later, fruit salad with banana and sweet vanilla with coconut, ground almond becoming sharply fruity.
Immediate and direct. Smoothly coating and sweet, with a warming pungency. Dark toffee and spice; notes of salt and flint. Then toasty, with hints of apple strudel and toasted coconut; marzipan, chocolate, heather and menthol.
Gentle and warming, with pepper. Oily, pungent and sweetly mint-cool with hints of burnt pastry, cedarwood and smoke. Slowly drying and very long.
