Almost sour in places. Limes smashed on your mouth unwillingly. "sophisticated". Spicy apple pie. General creaminess. General creaminess. Banoffee pie, sweet, grapefruit, butter, kirsch, arm & hammer baking soda toothpaste, water chestnuts (as a feeling).

Burnt masrhmallow, sherbert, cremola foam, marmalade.
Don't think this is for me to be honest. Too sour, sorry... but nose is intriguing. Should come with custard instead of cream. Shallow and vindictive, fucking beautiful, geese are bastards, does everyone own a hammer?, some debate as whether the nose is the best thing and then it gets worse, or that the nose is a bit gluey and then it reveals itself.
