A rare collectors item. Bottled exclusively to celebrate 15th Anniversary of the Society's Australian Branch.
The nose regaled us with honey nut breakfast cereal, toffee, Crunchie bars, marzipan and sweetie tobacco (shredded coconut), with added floral hints. Then it suffused our gobs with a warm golden glow – pickled ginger, black bun and fudge; ‘honey on a razor strop’ and ‘chewing twigs on a heathery hillside’. The reduced nose had us weeping over childhood memories of McCowan’s Highland Toffee, Daim bars (‘Dime’ in those days), syrup of figs and oiled cricket bats. The reduced palate was rather deep, dark and mysterious, but rich and sweet (apricot Danish, yum-yums, treacle toffee, dried fruits). Thumbs up all round.
