Eher ungewöhnlicher Long Pond. Am Gaumen eine knusprige Süße - fast schon zu viel.

Erstaunlich frische Nase für das hohe Alter. Die Fruchtnoten rücken am Gaumen aber mit zunehmender Länge in den Hintergrund, dafür kommt eine schöne Süsse und etwas mehr Holzeinschlag zum Vorschein - dabei kippt der Rum aber keinesfalls in zu bittere Sphären. Leider fehlt mir insgesamt aber ein wenig die aromatische Raffinesse, weshalb am Ende ein zwar sehr leckerer Rum im Glas bleibt, der sich aber nicht ganz in die absolute Topliga einreihen kann.

Dieser jamaikanische Rum stammt aus dem Jahr 1985 und ist somit 37 Jahre alt. Gebrannt wurde er aus Melasse auf einer Pot Still, abgefüllt wurde er mit 49,5%. Das Aromenspiel überrascht mich: Ich finde die typischen Noten von Früchten wie Banane, Limette, Mango, Ananas. Vor allem aber eine unglaubliche Süße. Diese ist so ausgeprägt, dass ich fast davon ausgegangen wäre, der Rum sei gesüßt, wenn man es nicht besser wüsste. Insgesamt ist der Rum dennoch etwas dünn, denn außer Früchten und Süße gibt es da nicht viel zu entdecken. Schade, denn so geht es über eine Bewertung in den niedrigen 80ern nicht hinaus.

schöne LP Nase mit tropischen Früchten (Mango) und diesem vergorenen, leicht in Richtung Essig gehenden. Am Gaumen Fass, und röstige Noten. Leider etwas dünn trotz der 49,5%. Sonst wären noch ein paar mehr Punkte drin gewesen.

Ehrlich gesagt habe mir mehr erwartet. Am Anfang diskrete, schöne Fruchtnoten, die aber doch schnell weg sind. Im Mittelteil etwas dünn, Abgang schon lang aber adstringierend, etwas bitter.

Premier rhum de ce type pour moi, je n'ai pas encore goûté de référence qui me permettent de le comparer. Dans tous les cas ça été une bonne expérience et je l'ai trouvé vraiment très bon. Tout passait très bien.
