erneut ein ausgezeichneter EMB 95! Viele tropische Früchte wie Papaya, Mango, Pfirsich strömen in die Nase. Aus der Erinnerung heraus würde ich sagen, der FRC ist noch eine Spur ‚mentholig-metallischer’ unterwegs als der RA und der RC, beiden aber absolut ebenbürtig.

I was so lucky to try this one because I didn't get a bottle and now it's kind of expensive. A really good rum with all the Clarendon flavours. The fruit is very light but combined with the light floral note it feels wonderful on the palate. Intense and lightly dry and I love the roasted wood notes. Draws nice curtains and the flavours intensify in the empty glass over time.

Krasser EMB. Sehr holzig, floral und mentholig. Sehr elegant und facettenreich, dazu eine leichte Cassis und Pfirsich eistee Note dazu. Sowie etwas Bleistift und Minze.

27 Jahre alt und davon 23 Jahre tropisch gereift! Ein 95er EMB! Super gut 😊 Nase: kräftig aber harmonisch, intensiv und wunderbar rund. Eine tolle würzig-fruchtige Aromenwolke strömt aus dem Glas. Alte, getrocknete Blutorange mit süßlicher Zitrone, dazu eine Mischung aus Sauerkirsche, schwarze Johannisbeere, Stachelbeere und mehliger Banane. Eingefasst in altem Zedernholz mit etwa Holzsäure, ganz leicht vinegar und abgerundet mit Sahne Toffee, Ahornsirup und runden Hauch Lakritze. Wow. 91 Gaumen: Wahnsinn. Intensiv, kräftig und auch hier wieder total rund. Da passt alles gut zusammen. Tolle Geschmackskurve: anfangs leicht adstringent und bitter, dann etwas metallisch und salzig, bevor intensiv fruchtig Zitronenschale, Limette, Kumquat und schließlich Aprikose übernehmen. Dabei ist er annehmen holzig und wird hinten zunehmend minziger. Der Alkohol ist toll eingebunden 91 Dieser Rum überzeugt auf ganzer Linie.

Wow! Richtig gelungen! Typischer EMB 95 mit schöner Minze! Demnächst muss der Blind-Vergleich zwischen den vier EMB her…

woody, subtle… What an elegant Clarendon. There're more hints of wood and mint than the previous EMB 95 in my impression, just the elements that I like.

Sehr geiler EMB 95, für mich etwas hinter dem RA

Ebenfalls ein klasse Verteter des 1995er EMB-Jahrganges. Im Vergleich zum Velier 2010 besser eingebundener Alkohol, mehr Holz und eine etwas ausgeprägtere Menthol-Note, die jedoch nicht störend ist. Etwas runder, dafür weniger ölig in der Konsistenz als der Rumclub 1995, aber insgesamt auf vergleichbarem Niveau. Mögen noch viele Abfüllungen aus diesem Jahrgang folgen!

Nose: V&M > RA > RC = FSB-BS The lower ABV bottling presents the more fruity and peasant nose straight up. Others significantly more heavy, dark and sharp. Palate: [Velier] > RA > RC > FSB-BS > V&M On the palate I have to give it to the higher proof combatants as they are all properly evil in what they do. However, imho V&M bottled their cask at the exact right ABV to enjoy the EMB right from the bottle.
