This sample arrive with he previous one and I'd loved a bottle of this one as well. A very good take on Jamaica indeed. The nose is funky with ester and fermentation notes followed by fruits and sweet vanilla. The palate is also funky with ester, tar and varnish followed by fruit and woody vanilla. The finish is long and warm with wood, ester and lovely fruit.

Very light and fragrant Jamaican blend. Well balanced with strong fruit flavours present without dominating. Very easy to sip at 55%, and more than enjoyable

3e rhum Jamaicain de Rum Sponge qu'il m'est donné de goûter. Les 2 premiers étaient très bon. Le 3e est sur la même lignée. Le nez est riche est envoûtant. Du fruit, du fruit, du fruit, du funky. Qu'est ce que c'est agréable ! En bouche, l'alcool est là, piquant. Mais le fruit est bien présent : un ananas doux, une banane très mure. Puis du bois et du poivre en fin de bouche. Ce fruit reste très présent en bouche après la fin de la dégustation. C'est franchement très agréable. Un bonbon qui pique !

Die Idee des Blends finde ich gut. Nase auch echt fein, aber am Gaumen ist er deutlich verwässert.
