SMWS Panel Notes
Comforting warm, sweet and spicy aromas wafting through the room of German lebkuchen (honey and spiced biscuits) marzipan stollen (fruit bread containing dried fruits and raisins covered in icing sugar), gingerbread cookie and banana chocolate chip loaf.
On the palate neat a sweet, bitter, and spicy flavour explosion like that of a chewy dark chocolate brownie combined with the tartness of sour cherries and the addition of a chipotle chilli pepper. With a drop of water we actually did smoke and dry the ripe red jalapeno peppers to make chipotle but that was in a walk-in humidor where we all lit a hand-rolled cigar.
