In line with a lot of other older continental Guyanese bottlings this SWR need a tremendous time to breath in order to open up. This will help to reduce the bitterness on the finish and enhance the rum‘s complexity. For me it is on the edge of feeling to thin overall, however still very tasty and complex given enough time.

Nach langem Atmen wirklich überzeugend: So muss Rum riechen und schmecken - zumindest mir. 😉

„Skeldon“ auf dem Label weckt natürlich Erwartungen. Eine gewisse Ähnlichkeit in der DNA mag vorhanden sein, der Rum an sich ist auch durchaus gefällig - Süsse, Holz, Kaffee, Gewürze - aber an die Komplexität der anderen Skeldons reicht diese Abfüllung bei Weitem nicht heran. Ungeachtet des grossen Namens bleibt ein solider Rum bestehen mit hoher Süffigkeit, aber auch nicht frei von etwas harschen Noten.

Holznoten wie in einem sehr alten Armagnac mit recht bitteren aber angenehmen Noten im Abgang. Im Geschmack neben Ahornsirup die Fruchtigkeit von Pflaume und Aprikose. Die Bitterkeit im Abgang weicht nach längerem Atmen der Rauchigkeit der Nase. Sehr guter Rum der das Niveau des 2001 SWR von SBS knapp verfehlt.

Ausgewogen-komplex und sehr lecker in der Nase, trotz der nur knapp 48%: würzig-fruchtig-holzig. Eskommt gleich eine angenehme Sahnetoffee-süße mit tropischen Früchten und weicher Kokosmilch. Dahinter aber auch Frische mit ätherischen Ölen. Er ist angenehm holzig, getoastetes Holz mit einer feinen Vanille-Note. Auch vollmundig am Gaumen: dunkel-holzig-röstig und bitter-salzig. Fast ein bisschen verkohlt mit viel Mokka. Eine harzige Frische kommt hinzu mit einem Anteil Lakritz. Dahinter ist etwas Süße von Toffee. Im Abgang bleibt er holzig bitter mit ordentlich Mokka und etwas dunkler Schokolade. Hat auch was von geschnittenem Geäst. Insgesamt doch sehr holzig bitter, aber auch sehr intensiv und schön. Ich mag die alten Demerara. Insbesondere Skeldon.

Une mise en bouteille de Skeldon très douce et agréable. Le nez offre des arômes typiques de Guyana, avec des notes sucrées, caféinées, épicées, boisées, chocolatées, vanillées et légèrement fumées qui se mêlent très bien. On retrouve les mêmes arômes en bouche, avec la même douceur, pour un rhum qui se veut rond, onctueux et savoureux. La finale est assez longue et se poursuit sur la même trame mais avec une pointe légèrement mentholée. Un rhum très gourmand, qui pourrait se boire comme du lait vu son voltage relativement bas.

Sometimes you get a surprise and this one was a surprise because I haven't seen it in Danish stores or online shops. A very nice Skeldon. The nose is heavy with fruit and oak followed by burnt sugar and light tobacco. The nose came as soon as the Cork was popped. The palate is also heavy, complex and yet well balanced. Again lots of fruit and oak. The burnt sugar is also there with som light licorice. There is a nice spicy tinge to it and at the end of the palate the tannins kick in. The finish is long and lightly dry with dried fruit, oak and licorice. Wonderful rum and price to quality is very good.

Das war mein erster Rum nach dem Skeldon Style und ich muss sagen das ich sehr begeistert von ihm bin. Er ist komplex, vollmundig und extrem weich, trotz 53,2%. Eine hochinteresssante Trinkerfahrung

Braucht viel Zeit zum Atmen. Sehr lecker aber nicht auf dem Niveau anderer Skeldon.

Warum verdünnt man den so? Geschmacklich wird er dadurch etwas flach.

Very dark, bitter chocolate. Quite woody, but not overpowering so not too astringent. After airing for quite some time (thanks for the tip @Dom M) a tiny bit of sweetness comes through. Perhaps a bit thin, but well balanced with a little afterburn. Thanks @Chris for the sample. All gone now 🥲
