“The wacky Easter calendar day 5 "Oh man " was my first thought when I came into contact with this drop... The nose is not really pleasing Cheap glue mixed with green very green pineapple (could also be green banana 🤣) Uhu Sekundenbab describes it best. On the palate ... briefly shaken some sweetness, some wood ... and ester but not the delicious ester ... a little fruit via banana and pineapple (very little) Not getting warm with it....”

“Tag 5 von TheDunderHut's abgefahrenen Osterkalender. Wieder eine sehr spannende Erfahrung dieses Sample blind verkostet zu haben. Von der ersten Nase hat Lösungsmittel überwogen und ich hätte auf einen Hampden getippt. Vom Geschmack habe ich das wieder verworfen. Auf Mhoba wäre ich definitiv nicht gekommen. Genauso wenig habe ich irgendetwas von einer Ananas wahrgenommen. Sehr komisch. Mehr als mittelmäßig finde ich ihn leider nicht. Nach meiner Meinung bilde ich mir auch ein, dass er eine Dosage hat.”
