“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. Side-by-side the SBS bottling is clearly ahead of The Nectar. Side-by-side with some 2001 SWRs, the 1997 come out much more elegant and a little more moderated. Wood influence is more accentuated, on the edge of being overwhelming.”

“Heavy sweetness with dark fruits, wood and spice rise to the nose. Alcohol hardly plays a role here. On the palate also first a great sweetness, some bitterness and lots of fruit (grapes, black currant) reminds me very much of an older Armagnac. I like it well.”

“Nose is absolutely fantastic ! Mouth is unfortunately a bit too woody but it is still a very good rum. It could have been an amazing one if bottled 4 years ago.”
