Nose: a bakery feast, with less-than-usual chapati and roasting lovage seeds. After a while, it opens up on violet candy.
Mouth: gummy bears, freshly baked dough, hints of gingerbread, marzipan -- the whole is very well balanced. It gives a distant impression of herbs (dried sage and gentian) and an even vaguer pencil-sharpener blade taste. The bakery dominates the lot, though.
Finish: it is a delightful mix of choux dough, gingerbread, speculoos spices, cinnamon and icing sugar. Not to mention butterscotch and coconut. It ends on a slight bitterness, perhaps furniture polish.
An outstanding old grain. Magnificient.
