Hi everyone. How did you find this on the Izetti Scoville scale? For me it was mild, but then I’ve been doing these a while and may be held up by different things to you. My COD is 4d, with a mention too for 7d. Those are also the two clues featuring exclamation marks. Fancy that! Thanks Izetti!
I found this puzzle…..interesting. I had a hard time getting started, and I ended up biffing most of the answers. I suspect inexperienced solvers would find it very difficult, lacking both the general knowledge and the tricks of the veterans.
