"Lip-smackingly gorgeous ballet dancer"
One of 193 Bottles.
The nose (not untypical) suggested a Morningside lady’s handbag; leather perfume, powder-puff and a slight dusting of tobacco, along with sherbet lemons and polo mints. On a different tangent, we identified vanilla, coconut butter and fresh-cut marijuana leaves. Water brought out perfumed apples (pink lady, jonagold) pear-drops and chocolate. The unreduced palate was beautifully sweet (iced cakes, Frosties, red liquorice) and perfumed, its floral elegance quite lip-smackingly gorgeous. The Vault-master said “beautifully toned and balanced – this Morningside lady must be a ballet dancer!” It remained fantastic in reduction – butterscotch and brown sugar indulgence.
