The nose takes you to Princes Street Gardens in the summer – grass, roses, flower beds, ice-cream vans and pastry wagons laden with donuts, Danishes and churros; also perfumed sweets (sherbet straws, blackcurrant, lemon, apple). The palate is delicious – tropical fruits (custard apple, monstera, Charentais melon), vanilla slices and dark chocolate digestive biscuits – all balanced by subtle back-tastes of wood and clean leather. The reduced nose is even fresher, with a dominant flavour of perfumed pear. The palate has that je ne sais quoi of age – oak, putty, Gewurtztraminer and Hoegaarden against the marshmallow, coconut, cocoa and biscuit of luxury Rocky Road.
