Limited to a mere 277 bottles, this is another good one from the Kill Devil release. The nose is like a typical Caroni with the rubber and fruitiness from tropical fruits. There is a bite from the alcohol from the start, which dissipates if you leave it for 15-30 minutes. The palate is nicely balanced where the spices are dominant. Nice curtains on the glass and creamy in the mouth with a bit of saltiness. The finish is long with caramel and salt.

Nose In just one breath the mind presses the rewind button and carries you back into a dim oriental harem, where your nose is charmed by hundreds of exotic scents. While you are relaxing in that noble chair of precious cedar and sandalwood and enjoying a coup of moroccan Nana mint tea, the nose is charmed by clouds of burnt myrrh, incense, vermouth and camphor. Next to you, someone's puffing shisha tobacco from Egypt and passes you a huge peace of dark chocolate from Guadeloupe. What a truly luxury and complex treatment! With water: Becoming more leavy, herbal and earthy now. We can't help but think of Gardel for a wee moment. Palate Welcome to the chocolate factory! All kinds of cocoa products, such as milk chocolate, dark chocolate and salted nougat are sizzling on the tongue. Not to forget about the pieces of dried oranges, lemons and a few mint leaves in it. The texture is silky and smooth, whilst the liquid is medium bodied and the alcohol perfectly integrated. With water: More sweetness is coming up through a lot of milk chocolate. Finish Consistent with the french saying 'partir, c'est mourir un peu' we miss a bit of duration with this finish. But that heavy cocoa note with citrus peels is just lovely and makes you wanting it to last forever.

Der hier kommt gleich mal würzig holzig in der Nase rüber. Trockenes Vanillepulver, röstig und sogar rauchig. Aber auch fruchtig mit der Süße von getrockneter Pflaume und der Säure von Johannisbeere, etwas Kirsche ist auch dabei. Frische Minze und etwas Schokolade hinten raus. Auch am Gaumen diese leckere Würze und holzigkeit, die sogleich in grasig-süßes Zuckerrohr übergeht. Auch hier hab ich eine leichte Schoko-Note. Und gleich wieder die Minze. An Frucht finde ich getrocknete Aprikose. Vanille und Anis sind auch dabei. Im Abgang Zuckerrohr, Anis und Minze Sehr gelungen und lecker.

Really interesting sample! It balances well fresh minty notes with red fruits (cherries) and sweeter touch (cocoa, caramel). Really worth it if you can grab a bottle at decent price ;)
