“Schmeckt wie abgehangenes Fleisch. Nur sehr muffig. Und Karamell- und Spiritusnoten hinten raus. Viel Geschichte im Glas.”

“Da kommt schon richtig Power in der Nase. Ich tippe auf einen recht hohen Jamaika-Anteil - steht ihm sehr gut. Recht frisch aber trotzdem kommen die typischen dunkel, röstigen Navy-Assoziationen durch. Macht richtig Spaß! Vielen Dank an Mirco für die Teilung!”
