“Könnte ein bisschen kräftiger sein, hat aber trotzdem ne schöne Komplexität zu bieten. Demerara lässt grüßen. War ein blind Sample, danke Adrian! Das blind verkosten im RumX Adventskalender dürfte interessant werden. 😅”

“Holz und Zucker wechseln sich in der Nase mit sehr süßer Ananas ab. Der Geschmack überzeugt eher durch seine seidige Konsistenz denn dem Geschmack an sich. Vor allem dunkle Schokolade.”
