“Spannende Abfüllung und auch spannendes Projekt, da es wohl noch eine weitere und dann ältere Abfüllung geben wird. Es handelt sich um einen Blend aus LROK / HGML / DOK der 21 Monate im Fass war. Hintenraus kommt durchaus jetzt schon das Holz und eine leichte Bitterkeit. Der Preis ist wirklich für die heutige Zeit nahezu sensationell (knapp 50€ für 0,7 Liter)”

“Leckerer junger Hampden. In der Nase Ananas, Mango, Banane etwas Holz ...Buttersäure und Klebstoff ,Alkohol kaum spürbar. Am Gaumen füllt es den Mund wunderbar aus mmh Frucht Ester Bombe Platzt förmlich im Mund hier auch sofort Banane, Ananas, Mango und reichlich Uhu 😅... ich schmecke allerdings gerade im Abgang auch eine Bitterkeit und Holz was mich an Virgin Oak erinnert (zum Glück nur leicht) PLV muss erwähnt werden Absolut Top !!!!”
