“Toller Geruch nach mittelaltem Eichenholz. Im Geschmack recht kräftig trotz der nur 53%. Im Abgang eine tolle langanhaltende Süße vom Eichenfass. Schöner Guadeloupe der noch keine Dreckigkeit hat.”

“Ein sehr angenehmer, weicher und typischer Agricole! Am Gaumen ein schönes Wechselspiel von Süsse, Holz, Espresso und pflanzlichen Aromen. Im Abgang dann klassische Gras- und Heuaromen! Sehr gut!”
