Plus en accord avec mon palais
L’hypocras avait un goût relevé agréable (peut être un peu trop de gingembre toutefois?)
I have had Hypocras on one other occasion, by another French supplier, and found it excellent. I have since wanted to obtain it again. I bought two bottles of this hypocras simply as I feared if I enjoyed it with my wife, we might demolish it in the course of an evening, and I'd like a "reserve". As it turns out, my wife and I absolutely enjoyed the hypocras, and I am having to carefully consider when to finish the second bottle, before purchasing it again. Fantastic drink, I am extremely pleased by the quality.
