“Orange peel on the nose, a hint of essential oils, cola, herbal notes, floor wax, old barrel. Caramel, malt, dark chocolate on the palate. Very intense despite the low ABV. Only the finish is not super long. I quite like this one!”

“Great, very dark color. Tobacco on the nose, plenty of espresso, chocolate and a hint of powdered plum and liquorice. I like it very much. It continues in a similar way on the palate. A great, continental matured Demerara. Warm, tart, powerful and yet very balanced. I haven't had many old Demeraras from the 70s, but this one reminds me strongly of them. Thanks to Bonn for this great sample 😀😀😀”
