“Vermutlich die 'Protovariante' des Indigo. Und als solche deutlich unreifer im Charakter. Volle Breitseite Schokolade in der Nase. Daneben findet sich Vanille, etwas Zimt und satte Eiche. Orangenschale und nicht gut, aber passabel eingebundener Alkohol. Riecht mir zu doll, geht stellenweise in Richtung Supermarkt-Süßrum. Geschmacklich dann ähnlich, wenn auch weniger süß als erwartet. Relativ dünn und sehr 'direkt' in den Aromen, wenig komplex. Zur puren Schokolade kommt aber erfreulicherweise noch mehr dazu. Zimt, Vanille, mehr Röstaromen und am deutlichsten Kaffee. Im Abgang dann Schärfe, allerdings zimtig und nicht alkoholisch. Finish sehr kurz. Wer Cihuatan Fan ist kann hier bedenkenlos die Reste zum Abverkaufspreis eintüten. Ansonsten eher zum Indigo greifen - der ist deutlich weiter entwickelt. Und besser. Nachtrag 1: im Direktvergleich mit dem Indigo zwar der klare Vorgänger, aber doch massiv unausgereifter. Sehr viel mehr Kanten, sehr viel plumper, sehr viel weniger amgenehm.”
