Clear (clouds with water), golden amber.

Bready and biscuity with pungent candied citrus peel, old-fashioned oil paint, carbolic soap, coal dust, candied ginger and praline chocolate. Water amplifies buttery vanilla. Faint matchbox striking pad.

Spicy, salty and smoky buttery corn-on-the-cob with smoked kipper. Takes water well, revealing honey, candied citrus peel, ginger, cinnamon and praline.

Dark chocolate, orange zest, ginger, cinnamon and black pepper spice.

Spicy and zesty with attractive praline chocolate and ginger.
