“Kräutertee trifft Guyana. Nun ja, Nase noch spannend/komplex (pflanzlich, nussig, röstig, fruchtig) und macht Lust auf mehr, aber im Mund dann holzig, trocken, würzig, herb. Hätte mir mehr Röstaromen, Karamell und Frucht gewünscht. Im Abgang viel Lakritz, Gewürze und Trockenfrüchte, was was nicht ganz auf meinen Geschmack trifft.”

“Guyana can be a little tricky in my taste. There are the ones that I love and the ones that I’m not the biggest fan of. Those are the herbal and vegetal ones. This one tastes a lot like a very herbal PM, in addition to some wood and spices a a touch of fruit. Interesting but not for me.”
