Nose: Lemon puff biscuits, orange blossom honey, and raisin Danish. Freshly printed magazines, ink, pulpy paper, leather briefcase with metal catches. Freshly cut willow tree and feathers.

Palate: Thick and creamy mouthfeel with a big hit of ginger, turmeric, lemon and honey. The paper from the nose comes next, good quality writing paper and ink from a vintage fountain pen, plus an antique metal propelling pencil. A large raisin Danish next to a paper bag of rum and raisin fudge.

Finish: Butter ball sweets, crystallised ginger, spearmint chews, clove balls. An antique Davenport desk, polished with beeswax.

Palate: Vanilla fudge, rum and raisin fudge. Lemon cupcakes, Victoria sponge cake with extra buttercream in the middle. Grass, sage, honey, turmeric, and gingerbread biscuits
