Amazing rich, yet mellow fruitiness on the nose. Sweet, fruity on the palate combined with some spices. I don’t get much of any LP bacon/meaty notes - just some smoke at the end. I like this very much. Add-on: RA / Nobilis / TRC: Very nice and mellow fruity notes with honey in all three. TRC is noticeable more woody/aged on the nose, however. RA most fruity and powerful on the palate. Nobilis somewhat tamed with noticeable less fruits. Wood and some smoke enter the picture. TRC with very nice combination of wood and fruits. Most elegant of the trio. Nice vintage/mark for enjoyable Jamaican sippers. 😊

Brauch ewig bis er sich öffnet. Dann aber eine wahre Vielfalt an Aromen. Beim zweiten Kosten typisch Jamaika aber dann auch wieder nicht. Hat auch würzige Seite die eher an Barbados erinnern. Hat mir sehr gut gefallen.

Der Rum kann einen verrückten Trick, öffnet man die Flasche und es riecht direkt volles Rohr nach Jamaika, aber im Glas ist er überraschend verschlossen - selbst nach Stunden. Es gibt fruchtige Ester. Ananas und überreife Melone, aber auch eine fruchtige Vanille, wie man sie vielleicht aus Barbados kennt, dazu süßes Gebäck und Marzipan. Im Mund schlagen saure, fruchtige Ester ein, die eher an stärkere Marks erinnern, Pfirsicheistee, die Rauchigkeit von Curryblättern und etwas Bitterkeit aus dem Holz. Alkohol bleibt die ganze Zeit sehr weich, der Abgang eher kurz und mild mit einer leichten Frische. Das ist einerseits ganz gut, aber andererseits werde ich das Gefühl nicht los, dass da noch viel mehr möglich gewesen wäre. Update: Mandeln, überall Mandeln. In der Nase, im Mund, im Abgang.

Durchaus etwas überraschend - sehr rundes Profil mit aussergewöhnlicher Balance aus Fruchtestern, schwerer Süsse und leichter Würze. Tolle Auswahl, ein vorzüglicher Tropfen.

Ein extrem vielseitiger komplexer LP!! Das ist genau meins! Am Gaumen wechseln sich Süsse, Würzigkeit, Holz und leichte Ester immer wieder ab! Er bietet das komplette LP-Portfolio! Ausgezeichnet

Probiert als 2cl Sample. In der Nase dominieren Früchte, Holz und Joghurt. Geschmacklich dann sehr ähnlich. Alkohol ist top eingebunden und ein toller Abgang.

VRW 2000 ist einfach ein gutes Mark und Jahr. Sehr angenehm, weich. Dabei trotzdem mittlere Ester und Speck Noten.
