Samples & cuts up Terra Java then just lands on it for turntable cacáo spinning hazily around a cocoa-tea track. Good range for several different beats streaming together into a dexterously slow techno-house mix.
Appearance 4.5 / 5
|Temper:||matte w/ faint sparkles|
Aroma 9.2 / 10
aromatically gifted: a mallow wonderland... hibiscus, elder, juniper -> deeper herbs - lapsang souchong, vetiver -> fresh cut teak, pine woods; add cream but some BMX vinyl too
Mouthfeel 13.1 / 15
|Texture:||new standard for evenness|
|Melt:||kills thru tenderness|
Flavor 44.5 / 50
caramel bolts out -> accelerates to butterscotch peak -> quick shot of port -> herbal grasses -> simmering tea under a veil of smoke -> washes up into light citric pekoe cupped by smoldering chocolate
Quality 18.1 / 20
Coppeneur’s style matched to this varietal would seem to be overkill (witness Pralus’ Indonesie). But 1st rate synergy & balance prevails, largely on account of supreme conche.
