Nose
Deep, sweet dark chocolate and hazelnut gelato with dried dates, toasted pine nuts and powdered cinnamon, with lifted aromas of honey and fennel. A dusty element, oat cake.
Palate
Dark chocolate and chilli flakes give way to a satchel carrying a tobacco box, pencil shavings and a pair of oat cakes in honey.
Finish
Dry cocoa powder, black pepper and cigar spice, with a hint of sour cherry.
Comment
My sweet tooth really loves the chocolaty sweetness, but this is balanced perfectly by the spicy dryness.

Nose
Cocoa nibs, melted dark chocolate and nuts. Hints of lemon zest and gentle spices, paprika and cumin. Also a grainy note like a malted drink.
Palate
Rich and complex, oak is very present as is the chocolate. That grain note comes through too with agave nectar ramping up the sweet side.
Finish
Drying on those gentle spices.
Comment
Sweet and savoury perfectly balanced, and that dry spice finish is something lovely.
