First light is a tidal wave of flavors! Big notes of dark chocolate, black pepper and vanilla rush over the palate. They finish with a smooth creamy leather with notes of cedar. Hints of cinnamon stick and clove. Retrohale adds a warming pepper burn.
As it progresses, bold flavors of milk chocolate and heavy cream appear. Overall sweetness takes on a caramel and toffee flavor.
Halfway through, espresso bean comes to the forefront, keeping the balance perfectly. The cream lingers longer and longer on the finish with hints of maple and cashew.
Flavors crescendo on the last third. Everything intensifies! Retrohale has a gorgeous cayenne pepper burn. More waves of nougat, vanilla bean, and walnut. Espresso and cream emerge. It perfectly balances the complexity and sweetness of the other flavors. Amazing!
