“Achtung: Die Abfüllungen in Deutschland scheinen inzwischen alle von 40% auf 37,5% gesenkt worden zu sein. Die Datenbank ist nicht mehr korrekt, Neuanlage oder Anpassung wäre eventuell nötig. Im Vergleich zum Blanca ist hier schon deutlich mehr los. Sehr weich mit säuerlichen Anklängen, einem Hauch Popcorn und diversen Röstnoten. Klassische sehr kunge Cuba-Noten, aber ergänzt durch Frische. Pur bleibt es ähnlich, aber speziell dieser Hauch von buttrigem Popcorn tut sich hervor. Ich bin überrascht wie rund der Oro ist, wenn dabei auch super leicht und nichtssagend. Schöner Crowdpleaser in Longdrinks wenn keine Nerds anwesend sind ;)”
