AlainG (1247) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 30, 2014
Elle est brune et tout ce qu’il y a comme présence mousseuse est un simple voile. Un nez qui me semble bien étrange, sans être désagréable pour autant. Ça sent les cerises dans l’alcool, ou encore les raisins secs dans du rhum. Il y a même une senteur poussiéreuse. En bouche, ce n’est que sucré, par les fruits macérés et le simple raisin sec ici aussi. L’alcool est retardataire mais se fait bien sentir, il est costaud en fin de compte. Je me serait attendu à quelque chose d’un peu plus complexe toutefois, mais c’était plutôt linéaire. (1244-080914)
