Panel's tasting note: "A perfumed bouquet coupled flower gardens rich in roses with creamy vanilla and toffee as ripe apples fell from orchard trees. A foamy lava of shampoo blew in the breeze like pink candyfloss whilst the palate brought a tingle of fresh chillies and citrus. Heavy oak created fantastically chewy textures as caramel biscuits enhanced the malty notes of crunchy kiln dried barley.
A few drops of water encouraged sandalwood and dried pine cones to tumble alongside freshly harvested grains before fruity notes combined lemon and mango with lavender soap. The palate had become creamier, abundant with vanilla and custard cream biscuits on a bed of oak shavings. Boiled brown rice then accompanied oat cakes as the finish continued into herbal realms."
