“WoW another minty TDL from CDI. I really love this symbiosis between mint/anise and wood/nuts/roasted almonds. Very unique rum. The alcohol is integrated very well. Long minty finish 🤤The value for money ratio is very good too. For me this one is behind the ‘19 version. I found the 19 is more rounder and a bit woodier, which synergy smoother and better. PN: You won’t like it, if you hate minty/anise notes. For me: 16yr>18yr of aging”

“Zuerst war ich etwas enttäuscht, aber ich mag ihn lieber mit jedem Schluck. Ich habe außergewöhnliches erwartet und einen meiner liebsten Easy-drinking-Rums gefunden. In der Nase: Minze, Falernum (Nelken, Ingwer, Zitrusschalen), gelbe Früchte eines Cognacs (Trauben und Pfirsich) und warmes Holz. Im Mund ist er intensiver, nach der Minze ist das ausgekohlte Fass präsenter als in der Nase, ansonsten ist das Profil ähnlich mit weniger Nelke. Im Abgang geht das Minzfeuerwerk dann richtig los: Minze, Menthol, mehr Minze und mehr Menthol - leider auch etwas scharfkantig. Habe ihn zusammen mit dem 1802 exklusive probiert. Die Unterschiede sind marginal, der 1802er ist etwas geschmeidiger, hellere Früchte und weniger röstig - m.E. insgesamt auf einem Niveau, mit einem leichten Plus für den 1802er Edit. Nach dem RdL und FRC 2002 verkostet. Weniger minzig als der RdL, viel intensiver als der FRC. Ein etwas anderes Profil. Bleibe bei der Bewertung.”

“Nez plutôt gourmand : du fruit, du sucre caramélisé, un côté piquant et mentholé. C'est engageant. La bouche est très différente : forte et sèche, sur des notes très "terrestres" : cuir, tabac notamment. Une sensation mentholée enrobante. Un chêne présent également. Une fin de bouche très agréable, légèrement amère, un poil plus gourmande. C'est un très bon rhum. J'aime beaucoup. Édit : vraiment très bon !! J'aurais dû doubler la bouteille ! Elle en valait la peine. J'ai gardé un petit sample de 3cl”
