Blaring, evangelical citric reflux while chocolate’s AWOL in this tropical fruit farce. Rather one-dimensional... the tall middle finger dimension.
Appearance 4.1 / 5
|Surface:||fingerprint condition on the front; minor gurgling out back|
|Snap:||like a brick|
Aroma 7.1 / 10
cocoa dust -> baby banana / apricot / orange blossom -> cream -> morel, smoke, & leather
Mouthfeel 13.6 / 15
|Texture:||rich success; astringent close|
|Melt:||best high of the experience|
Flavor 34.6 / 50
concentrated orange spritz; bright yellow fruit garland / baby banana (emphasizing its cherry tone) / alcoholic -> bitter dried apricot pit -> green walnut ending
Quality 15.2 / 20
Rapid vertical stack with little if any sequential evolution; quickly hits its levels & holds it – sans chocolat. Virtually reverses the aroma-to-flavor relationship found in Pralus’ Fortissima.
