“Nach 2 Jahren im Glas immer noch eine Offenbarung. Tolles Handwerk einen Blend von dieser Qualität hinzubekommen. Extren leicht und süffig, ein Jamaikaner für jeden Tag. Unfassbar gutes PLV zur Ausgabe.”

“Für mich der beste der 2008er Jamaica Blends. Ich gehe dennoch einen Punkt runter von 86 auf 85. Verkostet gegen Esters Delight II und für mich ist der Esters Delight I besser.”
