A deeper nose, which displays a greater complexity of vanilla oils, luscious honeycomb, apricot, maturing honey, lemon, white pear and a lovely hint of pepper, dusty spice and perfumed white flowers. That’s more like it! Gentle and oily on the palate with mouth filling honeyed fruit, citrus and a light grassy note. Intense yet delicate. The mid palate explodes with an array of peppery, rose petal marc-like notes, Turkish delight, rose and peppermint oil – like a fight in a florists!. Amazing length. It oozes class. A drop of water doesn’t change the palate and the palate is a lot less fun with the marc-like rose petal notes becoming more prominent. Ideally I would drink neat.
