A swirl of creamy vegetation, with hints of nut, baked bread, spices, and minerals.
The green vegetation notes is definitely upfront, but it seems pretty well-balanced.
Creamier then I thought it would be.
Decent, but not top-tier.
Flavor notes: Vegetation, hazelnut, baked bread, cream, cinnamon, and minerals.
