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.
