“Netter halbstarker Clairin. Was? Das ist ein Mhoba!? 😳 Aber ich hätte schwören können, ... 🙄”

“Alkohol könnte besser eingebunden sein. Etwas scharf. Mir zu jung und grasig. Er könnte eine Lagerung vertragen.”

“Der letzte der Vibration-Trilogie und der mit dem höchsten ABV. Nase: ganz anders, als die ersten beiden. Zunächst ebenfalls intensive Honig-Süße und vergorene Früchte. Hier kippt das ganze aber schnell ins Pflanzliche. Vergorene Papaya und alte Stachelbeere treffen auf vergorene, grüne Paprika und Artischocke. Dabei ist etwas Essig. Geht stark in Richtung Clairin. Das gefällt mir hier nicht so gut. 7,4 Gaumen: zu Beginn ganz kurz vergorene Honigmelone, die umgehend von einer salzig-bitteren Würzigkeit abgelöst wird. Wirkt durch den hohen ABV doch recht scharfkantig. Limettenschale gibt bittere Zitrusfruchtigkeit. Nicht sehr rund. 7,2 Von den dreien der für mich schlechteste. Zu bitter, zu scharfkantig. Das Brandy-Fass nehme ich kaum war.”
