“Ich fand ihn etwas frischer als den Rum Artesanal, dafür war dieser noch eine ganz kleine Spur komplexer und reifer. Bei beiden Abfüllungen ist es erstaunlich wie genial Alkohol in einen Rum eingebunden sein kann.”

“Rockley-Essenz auf Spitzenniveau, aber im Direktvergleich mit den nochmal älteren Vertretern von Rum Artesanal und Silver Seal wirkt hier die Abfüllung auf mich fast schon etwas verdünnt. Das fällt aber nur im Direktvergleich auf, denn auch hier ist eine Topbewertung absolut verdient. Tolles Release, in meiner Liste aber nicht der King of Rockley.”

“Last rum tasting for this year and then it's also my 500th rum! I rock that neat with something rare and good ... an 86 Rockley 🤩Nose: fantastic mix of spicy-sweet honey, delicate honeycomb, wax and medicinal notes with some iodine and brine. Behind that some orange zest and then slightly woody and smoky. All well balanced and round. 94Palate: very round, salty and spicy. Again this slightly medicinal with some iodine. Slightly woody-smoky with vanilla and fine honey in honeycomb. 92It's all the subtle nuances that make a Rockley and the unique profile that won't be seen again. Must definitely try again. With a little more rest!”
