Comment: Simple stuff, but the epitome of sweetness and light. It’s does exactly what I want a blend to do: it’s tasty and easy to drink.
Nose: Caramelised pineapple, milk chocolate, and a hint of rose. Orange peel, crystallised ginger, and macadamia nut. A touch of eraser. Red apple peel, brown sugar latte, and wholewheat bread.
Palate: Medium. Lime cordial, dried apple pieces, malted milk ice-cream, and rich vanilla. Savoury wholewheat toast. Bitter espresso, sponge fingers, and creamy dark chocolate – tiramisu-like.
