“Rum or cognac? Could you say for sure in the blind tasting? I can't. Yes the TDL mint, along with ginger, cloves, citrus you can detect, but there is also the peach, grapey cognac flavors galore. Compared to the Caksus exclusive, the 1802 is brighter and fruitier and without the dark roasted aromas.The same picture in the mouth: mint and bright fruit - very cognacresque. My TDL Falernum to go with it. Actually tastes like a blend of the dirty 2001 and the fruity 2002s. Compared to the Caksus, the finish is much smoother and much less menthol-heavy, here the rösitge barrel does come out again and the alcohol remains perceptible, unfortunately. Very nice TDL.”

“This is a TDL exactly to my taste! Lovely mint, eucalyptus, spice and burnt sugar on the nose!The palate first develops a dark sweetness that is followed by wood, spice and something toasty, then follows something dirty until again eucalyptus and mint spread out. Finally, ripe sour cherry appears...The finish is medium long with fresh mint, eucalyptus and red berries!This TDL is top notch! 👍🏻”

“Un T.D.L haut en couleur qui met en avant sa maîtrise et son équilibre. Le menthol et l’eucalyptus frappe de plein fouet le nez avec les fruits rouges. Épices, tabac, boisé et cuir sont présents en trame de fond. Les fruits jaunes (pêche notamment) font leur entrée tardivement. Un nez très harmonieux, rond et équilibré. Le profil est aussi intense que varié en bouche. On perçoit les fruits jaunes et tropicaux, notamment le fruit de la passion, mais aussi la pêche, les fruits rouges et un soupçon de citron yuzu. Le menthol et l’eucalyptus se font remarquer, à côté de l’amertume du cuir, du café et du cacao. Les épices et le bois se conjuguent bien et offrent une harmonie globale très maîtrisée. L’alcool est très bien intégré. La finale est longue, très verte et fraîche, mais les fruits rouges et exotiques ne sont pas loin. L’amertume persiste aux côtés des épices, des tanins et des notes de thé noir. Une sélection très réussie, qui se distingue de la cuvée d’Excellence Rhum par une grande structure, un bel équilibre aromatique et une souplesse inouïe en bouche.”
