    There's nuts, almond and cashew.
    Mint, yes.
    Chocolate, mild milk.
    Muffins? Not sure about this one.

    Blueberries, melted butter and fennel seeds.

      Reserved nose. Holds back a lot. Give at least half an hour.

    SMWS notes:

    We were greeted by creamy hazelnut praline paste, maple syrup and agave nectar followed by an iced ginger cake and Stollen bites (soft spiced fruit bread with marzipan, raisins, sultanas and citrus peel). We found juicy sultanas and plums as well as slow-roasted cherry tomatoes with basil oil on the palate neat, whilst in the finish a chewy chocolate gingerbread cookie. Water added a berry salad with balsamic vinegar and honey as well as a coconut and raspberry jam loaf cake on the nose whilst to taste, bursting with rich dark cocoa, mint flavour and crunchy hazelnuts like in a nutty mint chocolate muffin.
