Nose: Not quite as
flowery as when opened the day before, but still has lots of
banana, toffee, choclate and a little sea air.
Palate: Bonfire night in
the UK. Oh boy, back to my childhood again! Smooth toffee
followed quickly by lots of banana. This is not what I would
call pure banana, but think of a fruit shop where you see lots
of bunches of banana and you want to buy some, but not a full
bunch, so you break three or four from the bunch. As you break
the stems, a specific type of banana aroma is released. This is
the banana aroma / taste of Milford 10.
With water: This has now
totally changed. It has a little smoke and a sharper taste, a
little more spicy.
Overall Impression: I
love it, but without water please. In my notes I talked about
bonfire night. This is 5th November in the UK when we celebrate
one of England's great failures; That of Guy Fawkes trying to
blow up Parliament. To celebrate, we hold bonfires all over the
country and this is the one day when it is legal to let off
fireworks. As a child, this was a big event for my family. We
had a massive bonfire in the garden and invited lots of friends.
The typical food served on bonfire night is a selection of soups,
baked potatoes and home-made toffees and ginger cakes. With the
unique toffee and banana falvours. This Milford 10 immediately
transported me back to Nov. 5th as a child, sitting around a
burning fire, watching fireworks and eating wonderful toffee
apples, gingerbread men and other similar delights. Did I say
"I love it"
