Immediately, we were walking in pine forests, hunting mushrooms and smoking pipes; after that the nose wafted brown sugar, toasted marshmallows and clover honey, apple tart, gooseberry jam and plums. The punchy palate delivered caña de lomo, black olives and liquorice paper roll-ups, then chocolate éclair and treacle toffee sweetness, finishing with tannic oak, gingerbread and aniseed balls. The reduced nose suggested salted crackers, boquerones, old book shops and fag packets, shortbread, chocolate raisins and sweet white wine. The palate now combined hot chocolate and iced caramels with orange peel, lemon drops, clove rock, ginger biscuits and nibbling a lady’s glove.
