A real fresh pear aroma on the nose neat with some lemon and honey as well as the soft fragrance of white roses and white macarons made this a very pleasant affair. On the palate creamy sweet mango lassi with a dash of cardamom and ginger while in the finish subtle oak flavours. With the addition of water further aromas of orange syrup, sponge, banana custard and strawberries dipped in dark chocolate appeared. Heading off for a walk, the taste now fresh as a mountain stream as we all imagined having a full hip flask in our rucksack next to malted milk biscuits and an apricot Danish.
