AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
adamjackson (1192) – Canaan, New Hampshire, USA – APR 28, 2013
Trying this one side by side with the regular Kopi Luwak (non BA)
A – Pours thin and not oily, half a finger leather like head. Not as thick as I expected.
S – Coyingly sweet nose, lots of vanilla, sort of earthy
T – sweet, vanilla, bourbon is strong at first and then fades to this very nutty earthy coffee taste. i get some heavy leather. I get really fresh toffee
M – Medium body, roasted sweet finish
O – Impressive but I think the bourbon takes away from the exceptional regular Kopi Luwak. The bean is so great and to barrel age this is weird and a bummer.
