I've had waffle and malty since September and when I first got them could not taste anything waffley or malty after 2 weeks steeping. So, I stashed them with my others and forgot about them. Yesterday I took waffle out and dripped it and it was freakin amazing!! All the nuances and sublime flavor was there and I could taste a wafflle sweetness that is almost addicting ! LOVE it. Malty is fabulous too and now I understand the hype around their juices. I dont mind steeping 3 months to get this flavor, I'll just order now while my bottles are full I really want to try the malty with toffee next.....yum! Definitely pays to be patient!!
