“Une grosse claque bien lourde, terreuse et épicée. Là, on n'est pas sur les fruits. On est bien collés au sol. C'est chaud et huileux, fumé, boisé. Le sucre est là pour apporter la touche de gourmandise qui fait du bien. C'est vraiment très bon. Édit : aussi agréable à sentir qu'à boire. Hyper agréable et gourmand malgré les 60°. Nécessite une bonne aération mais aussi une bonne montée en température. Il gagne alors en gourmandise. Excellent”
