Kenya AA – Green
|Review Date:||March 1999|
Blind Assessment: Ambivalence. Several panelists admired this Keny's understated but richly fruity sweetness, but judging from their scores, remained only mildly impressed by the whole package. "Sweet undertones; dances nicely on the palate, but with a weird, disjointed rhythm" wrote one, memorably. "Thin, lackluster," complained another. I found the cup pleasant but underpowered.
Notes: Pleasant but underpowered, this has a richly fruity sweetness, but thin and lackluster. This Kenya AA sample is from an auction lot from a single cooperatively owned Kenya mill.
