No ordinary trad-rocker, Rogue’s Sambirano hits the scene hard ala lollapalooza... a green & white scheme of things: grass & grapefruit among others.
Appearance 5 / 5
|Temper:||shiny thin coat|
|Snap:||crackles; sanded edge|
Aroma 8.1 / 10
Rogue’s switchgrass-fired grill: bar-b-que’d citrus (white grapefruit, lemon, champagne grape) lathered in butter & leather
Mouthfeel 12.4 / 15
Flavor 41.3 / 50
citrus load-in w/ skeletal vanilla coconut-chocolate -> white sequence of jumps: lemon, lime, & grapefruit sweeten to pineapple & grape... the total effect yellow plum -> kiwi the bridge for a counter to that citric maneuver, into herbaceous greens: grass, banana leaf, & silver fir... the combined sum a smooth if dark gin w/ light cream ending
Quality 16.9 / 20
Good high / low spectrum but only mild cacáo backbone w/ no real chocolate bang. The effect an inky, dirty wash dug in a ditch; less sparkling & vibrant than the Madagascar of the other American Young Gun – Patric (which hits the standard vibe of the island). Veers more toward Marcolini in its darker roast & hazier tones. In that respect, they kick the rest out of the club.
