Apricots, white pepper, donut peach and a little floral something
Other half is getting cheesecake (from the wine)…sadly not from the larder.
Mrs CC: a really long sniff gets me slight hint of tweed. If you’ve ever sewn with new tweed, you’ll know what I mean.
I’m getting pineapple and peach on first sniff
And on second sniff a creamy smell, a bit like a pina colada!
Opening up a bit now. A bit more tropical man!
Peach, apricot, under-ripe pineapple, orange blossom(?)
Agree with buttery… also pineapple. Very pleasant but might still need to warm a little as just out of the fridge.
Ours is a little on the cool side too - but I’m loving the pineapple!\
Let’s dive in for a taste! Does it live up to the nose?!
Warming up and fruit is coming through…pineapple.
Don’t know if I’m just getting influenced by all this pineapple talk, but I can’t smell anything else now
First taste and there’s a lot going on!
Banana, still a pepper thing going on, apricot, peach and alcohol… can TOTALLY taste that alcohol
Peaches & cream, green pineapple again, a saline lick. Full body — unctuous texture.
Alcohol quite noticeable.
Yes, not super-sweet and juicy, is the word astringency?
Mrs JD is getting pear drops and liquorice
Quite richly textured and oily
Yes I agree, the alcohol seems very prominent!
The pepper thing is interesting. Lovely mouthfeel but the alcohol stays on the throat a bit too long.
