Plenty of ‘suckie sweets’ on the nose neat; caramel candy, chalky fizzy lemon sherbet, sugar coated gummy bears and toffee chews loaded with coconut, almonds and brown sugar. The taste initially a chilli heat moving swiftly on to menthol cooling iced peppermint tea and in the finish fresh strawberries with mint whipped cream. Water released a deeper sweetness of honey and nut cluster muesli, white chocolate cheesecake and a mild white pepper powder. On the palate now gingerbread pudding with salted caramel sauce as well as tropical fruit salad in a mint and passion fruit syrup making this a mouth-watering experience.
