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. 😉

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.

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.

„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.

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

Wesentlich fruchtiger als der El Dorado. Braucht viel Zeit zum Atmen. Sehr lecker aber nicht auf dem Niveau der anderen.
