On the nose neat we were baking buttery shortbread biscuits and we heavily dusting with powdered sugar a stolen (bread like cake with nuts, spices and candied fruits). On the palate neat, malty, salty and spicy like peppernut or gingerbread cookies filled with marzipan and apricot jelly. When we added water herbal, citrus aromas were released at first before we were back at the cookies - browned butter pecan chocolate chip ones this time. To taste, as I was told from a reliable source, the cocktail you have to drink whilst in Las Vegas called Verbena with the so called ‘Szechuan Button’.
