Tasting Notes

Nose
The WSD: Initial sweet creamy and fresh.  Hard candy.  Ethereal.  Then comes layers of ripe bananas, apricot jam, lemon bon bons, orange and then lime marmalade.  All underpinned by a light toffee sent.
Taste
The WSD:  Initially spicy.  Creamy caramel.  Treacle tarts with the hot pastry coming through.  Ginger nuts.  Then citrus notes come through: real lemonade, hot jam tarts and blood orange marmalade.
Finish
The WSD: Caramel lemon meringue pie with pink peppercorns.
