Nose
Open the lid of a spice box. Powdered nutmeg and cinnamon waft up, accompanied by candied fennel seeds and turmeric. Cocoa powder for good measure. Menthol and lemon zest lift things.
Palate
A silky-smooth mouthfeel carries a creamy hazelnut praline and milk chocolate bar dusted in icing sugar. Spicy white pepper and pencil shavings provide a pleasant tingle.
Finish
Candied fennel seeds, bringing a twist to the sweet chocolate character of the palate.
Comment
Why have cotton, when you can have silk?...

Nose
Masses of woody spices, big and bold up front, fresh wood shavings through to a delightful saw mill note. Gentle spices are lurking; saffron, nutmeg and mint oil. A little chocolate bar wrapper.
Palate
Very gentle at first, then the wood comes. Cherries dipped in dark chocolate. There is a distinct nutty edge to this too, walnuts and pecans.
Finish
A spice bomb of a finish, chilli heat prickle and white pepper.
Comment
Lots going on here, serious layers of flavour coming through.
