„Man muss ihn lange atmen lassen, der Sherry-Schleier verschwindet und es kommt eine sehr schöne Nase zum Vorschein. Im Mund dann megageil!! Sehr voll und warm. Trockenes Holz und getrocknete Früchte. Langer holziger Abgang. Toller Jamaikaner. Keine Ahnung, warum der noch erhältlich ist. Edit: Jetzt schon ein Sammlerstück.“

„If you like Jamaican funk without too much bling this is it. Unfortunately the bottle has already become pretty high priced, no wonder with this well balanced profile and the tender care used when creating it. A perfect fruity and funky nose sliding into a wonderful palate with fruits, black tea and tannins. The finish is long and very well balanced with fruit and spices. Only 750 bottles made and thus very hard to find.“

„Um es bildlich auszudrücken, erinnert mich die Nase an einen vergorenen Trockenfrüchtekorb, dazu Piment, altes Fass, Anis, Wldkräuter, Karamellbonbon à la Werther‘s Echte. Gefällt mir extren gut! Der Gaumen enttäuscht nicht minder, Karamellsüße, Mango, Gewürze, Fass, leicht pfeffrig. Langer röstig-schokoladiger Abgang! Absolutes Spitzenteil! Besten Dank dafür nach Neuwied!“

„Sehr trockener erhabener Rum, dem man sein Alter anmerkt. Sherry Finish ist dezent, aber spürbar. Bringt etwas rote Früchte rein, ansonsten wäre mir der Rum sicher viel zu trocken gewesen. So bleibt er ein schwerer Begleiter, der Aufmerksamkeit braucht. Nichts für schwache Nerven und keine Anfängerrum. Mir fehlt ein solider Abgang, den ich bei so einem alten Rum einfach erwarte.“

„Very high quality rum. And yet I am not a big fan of rums in sherry casks.“

„Sehr schöne Nase, die geschmacklich mir aber leider ein bisschen zu viel Holz hat. Schön sind aber vor allem die Noten nach starkem Schwarztee, Cassis, Kräutern und Muskat sowie Lakritz. Sehr komplex und lecker und ausgewogen aber nicht ganz mein Geschmack!“

„Farbe: Mahagoni Geruch: Mon Cherie - Schokolade, fruchtig (Kirsche, Dattel). Schwere Gewürze, Lebkuchen, Sherry und nasses Holz. Geschmack: Im Mund Toffee, Schokolade und Gewürze. Beim Schlucken würzig und vollmundig, viel Toffee und Schokolade, mit Sherry und edlem Holz. Schwach fruchtig (Dattel, Dörrpflaume). Wirklich sehr lecker. Abgang: Lang Würzig und holzig, Toffee, Schokolade, trocken.“
