“Franconian Tasting Gang Wenn nur mit Cola und Eis. Edit: Diese Aussage muss ich leider zurücknehmen. Es ist glaube ich so ziemlich mit meine einzige Rum Cola gewesen, die ich bisher weggeschüttet habe, weil ich diese nicht runterbekommen habe.”

“Schon besser als der gestern verkostete RX17309. Leichtes Nussaroma. Weniger aufdringlich künstlich wirkend, Alkohol besser integriert. Aber auch immer noch nicht richtig gut. Keine Empfehlung.”
