“Etwas bitter und ordentlich würzig. Kein Rum für den nüchternen Gaumen. Holz, getrocknete Früchte, dezente Süsse. Mit Wasser wird er wesentlich gefälliger.”

“Schmeckt besser, als die sehr verhaltene Nase suggerierte. Alkohol ziemlich gut integriert. Braucht Zeit, sich zu entwickeln. Danke an Tschusikowsky für das Sample!”
