“Sehr ungewöhnlich frischer fast schon grüner uitvlugt. Toll ist vor allem die Note nach frischer Zitronenschale. Alles in allem dominiert für mich aber Mal wieder der angekaute und leicht angekokelte Bleistift mit dem ich nicht warm werde. Von den hier beschriebenen Fruchtnoten nehme ich nichts wahr... Maximal etwas Lavendel Arznei Tee aber dass wars dann auch😄”

“#4082 I'd say the price tag matches what you get with this release. A really nicely balanced Demerara with light fruits and smoky wood notes. The palate is lightly dry and oily and I like the light floral note in the profile. The empty glass is really nice and I can pick up some licorice and black tea notes.”

“Surprisingly balanced Port Mourant, in direct comparison to other continental aged PM release already downright mild. Pleasant wood aromas meet herbs and kitchen spices and subtle fruit sweetness. Exciting PM vintage.”
