“Schmeckt nach Neutralalkohol. Erstaunlich schlecht!”

“Pour le nez, a re-tester sans rhume. Pour le goût, c'est une belle réussite. L'alcool est bien présent mais les fruits doux et la coco prennent de plus en plus de place, ainsi que les épices. Cette sensation s'accentue vraiment à l'aération. Pas vraiment de longueur, c'est dommage. Mais c'est plutôt agréable. Édit : alcool un poil trop présent pour un début de line-up.”
