Un rhum de Guyana qui débute sur un joli nez rempli de fruits (ananas, pomme, pêche et citron), d’épices, de bois et de caramel qui se mélangent harmonieusement. La bouche est plus brutale, tournée vers des épices (piment notamment), un boisé vanillé et une pointe d’amertume qui contrastent avec l’exubérance des fruits au nez. On décèle aussi des notes de réglisse. Le rhum est sec mais assez crémeux en bouche. La finale est moyennement longue avec les mêmes notes amères, de réglisse, de bois, d’épices, de caramel et de vanille. Un rhum contrasté mais diversifié dans les arômes.

Surprisingly nice. Tasted one time from a sample. Alcohol not perfectly integrated but in a way that i did not mind

Very nice and komplex young Versailles. Classic VSG notes with plenty add-ons I did not expect. This will need some more sessions to fully explore. Pleasantly surprised 👍

Kräftiger demerara Mit beeindruckend ausbalancierter Nase am Gaumen dominiert dann die Würze, Gibt man ihm Zeit kommt aber hier auch Frucht durch, hab etwas Pfirsich entdeckt. Finish fällt leider etwas ab

Ich mag Guyanarum! Ein wildes Zusammenspiel aus Frucht in der Nase, gepaart mit feinen Gewürzen und Holz,dazu Schokolade mit Bleistiftspähnen und diesem leicht muffigen was in Richtung altes Krankenhaus geht. Der Alkohol könnte bissl besser integriert sein. Ich würde ihn als guten Mittelklasse Diamond einordnen.

Profil gourmand, plutôt équilibré et complet. Alcool bien intégré, ce qui donne un peu de peps !
