Not a fan of this - very strong spice notes (traditional sweet spices). In no way similar to the superlative INW Biscuit.
To be fair I'm pretty sure (from the original French name) that this is meant to be the flavor of traditional Speculoos biscuits, of which it may well be an accurate representation. I haven't had the pleasure, but if they're at all like this, I doubt I'd like them very much. Again, to be fair, I'm not a fan of other traditional sweet spicy flavorings, like nutmeg-y custard tarts, or Christmas pudding, so maybe this is just me.
There is a prominent forward caramel note which is pleasant, but it gets drowned by the spice on the back end. Not much in the way of biscuit texture or grain. This might be right up your street, but I'd say it's a pretty niche flavour.
