Quite astringently alcoholic nose, mixed with some white chocolate. Not inviting but not unpleasant either. On the palate a completely different world opens up. Delicious exotic spices, slight caramel, tropical fruits (papaya in particular) all tantalizingly offset by the best expression so far of the signature Karukera dry bitter note. It's really good and makes you eager for the next sip. Excellent depth, medium to perhaps long finish. Probably could have supported even more ABV to punch the complexity outward even more, because there is a lot here. Easily the best Karukera I've tried so far. After my 3cl sample ran out I immediately wished I had more which is the sign of a really good one.

👃c'est funky, fraîcheur florale, cacao, léger alcool 👃2 : épices font leur apparition mais difficile a identifier 👄 : C'est super bon, complexe, des saveurs exotiques, cacao torréfié. ⏳: Amertume du cacao mais pas désagréable. Le chaud, épices et fruits

Très complexe, beaucoup de chose. Au premier abord, le nez est alcoolique mais ça n’agresse pas. On a un côté fruité et floral (ce dernier prédomine) ainsi qu’un côté torréfié de cacao/chocolat. Au plus il s’ouvre au plus j’ai des épices qui prennent le dessus sur le floral. En bouche, après aération j’ai un gros côté épicé (poivre / muscade) qui pique sur le fond de langue, un côté boisé qui est là mais ne prend pas du tout le dessus. La finale est légèrement amer et boisée, elle n’est pas trop forte mais persiste dans le temps.
