Despite just 24 months in the barrel, the barrel has worked extremely due to the extreme tenperature differences in Texas. Exciting rum.

Here Batch 21-1 at 58.5%, the second of my two souvenir bottles from San Francisco. Nose: of course almost identical to Batch 20-1.Powerful and complex with wood, vinegar, caramel, tropical fruit, molasses and a nice leather-tobacco-smoke blend. Very pleasant on the nose, encourages tasting.A bit finer on the palate than Batch 20-1. more licorice, more cassis, but also a bit shorter in appearance. Still strong oak and nicely toasty. A real positive surprise for me. Only 2 years aging, but under the blazing Texas sun. Alcohol very well integrated in both. Lots of flavors on the nose and palate. The must have tried in any case!

Alkohol leider nicht ganz so gut eingebunden. Insgesamt deutlich weniger Fruchtnoten und generell Komplexität im Vergleich zum neuen batch mit 51,9% und mir persönlich zu trocken, etwas zu bitter und zu adstringierend. Hat irgendwie etwas strohiges im Abgang...

After batch 20-1 (for the review see RX3293)now 21-1:Very similar to the brother with 62%, if the nose here also seems a bit rounder. Perhaps because of the lower ABV, but also because another note joins, which is rather musty-musty to me and reminds me of damp wood.On the palate similar: Again a bit more moderate, more well-behaved, than the younger with more power and at the same time even more the impression of drinking an older Spaniard. Unlike many of these bottlings but not boring, but quite tasty and yet somehow different!Overall, perhaps a bit more boring than the bottling with 62%, but equally worth trying! Young and yet with character and again something new from a rumtechnisch rather unknown country. I like that!

Die ersten Schlücke haben mich nicht ganz überzeugt. Aber dann nach ein paar Minuten im Glas hat er mich doch sehr positiv überrascht. Nachtrag: Foto
