Rich and sweet. Demerara sugar meets hazelnuts and toffee. Wait a moment and secondary flavours also shine through: dark chocolate and caramel, to name just two.
The texture is creamy and luxurious. Savour it for a moment and you’ll find butterscotch and marzipan come to the fore, closely followed by a dark chocolate tang and just a hint of cinnamon.
Truly one of our best, the subtle sweet tones glide gently away, leaving a trace of caramel at the very end. Delicious.
