Sehr untypischer St. Lucia. Ziemlich floral und blumig. Spannend!

Ein wirklich hervorragender Saint Lucia!! Er gefällt mir von der Nase bis zum Abgang!! Bin froh ihn im Glas gebabt zu haben! Vielleicht wird es ja doch noch ne Flasche!

Ohne direkten Vergleich einer der besten Lucias, die ich getrunken habe. Man merkt noch die Biestigkeit und Komplexität des legendären 1999er von Blackadder, aber in deutlich abgemilderter und runder Form.

Sehr starker St. Lucia. In den TOP 5 meiner Meinung nach.

die Nase erinnert mich etwas an Savanna HERRs / Grand Aromes mit roten Früchten, Vanillle, Tabak, Früchtebrot, Leder. Am Gaumen Leder, Tabak, Kakao, Fass und florale Noten. Sehr lecker! Das ist nur noch schwer zu toppen!

Bin wahrlich kein Fan von Rum von Saint Lucia, aber der haut mich einfach um! Den zu riechen und zu trinken ist ein außerordentliches Erlebnis. Dieser Rum hat einfach alles (in einem ausgewogenen Verhältnis), was einen Rum ausmacht. Blind verkostet hätte ich ihn für einen sehr alten, ausgezeichneten Versailles gehalten. Er wurde mir wärmstens empfohlen, ich empfehle ihn wärmstens euch. Und es gibt ihn tatsächlich immer noch auf dem Erstmarkt!

Ain't that stated 22 yrs on the bottles?! Anyway.... Usually Saint-Lucia from a certain age are often too woody and the bitterness often spoils the wonderful fruitiness. It's not the case here! Of course there is some oakiness but it takes the form of nice tannins like in a well infused Assam tea and a slight astringency coming along. So you can enjoy the fruitiness to the fullness. Bonbon Arlequin and Quince jelly (the one my father use to make). Long final. One of my top 3 Saint-Lucia so far!

Vraiment compliqué pour moi les rhums de St Lucie.. C'est le meilleur que j'ai goûté.. Belle longueur avec ces fruits rouges à profusion
