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!

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?!

Definitely!

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.
