I have tried a lot of these Extreme versions and they mostly perform really well. This one does too. Fruity with nice smoky wood. The palate is warm and the ABV is perfectly integrated in my mind. Leave to rest for a while before having a go to release all the flavours. The empty glass has the most wonderful aromas 😊

Den kontinental gereiften 2000er Rockley von RA mochte ich gar nicht: Teer, Getreide und verrottender Fisch. Das war zu viel für mich. Dieser tropisch gelagerte 2000er 'Vulcan Still' Rum hat schon Ähnlichkeiten, läuft aber auf einem völlig anderen Qualitätslevel. Mich springt eine vegetabile Rauchigkeit an, die an grünen Tee, Safran und gerösteten Sesam erinnert, dazu eine unglaubliche Süße und Fruchtigkeit. Auch im Mund setzt sich die pflanzliche, herbe Rauchigkeit fort - mit einer Getreidenote, die an Whisky erinnert. Dazu kommt Creme Brulee: buttrig, vanillig, karamellig. Der Mund ist vielleicht etwas dünn, aber wunderbar ausgewogen und in der Kombination aus Süße und pflanzlichen sehr komplex. Erinnert etwas an die 2004er Fijis. Der Abgang ist leider etwas unspektakulär und kurz.

Erinnert mich in der Nase an Zimt Honey Loops aus Vollkornweizen. Dunkle Schokolade mit Holz und getrockneten Früchten im Geschmack. Sanfter, warmer Abgang.

Nachklapp zum gestrigen Rum-Depot Tasting: den Rest vom Plantation eingeschenkt im Vergleich mit dem Cave Guildive WIRD 2000. Beide mit einem rauchig-torfigen Grundton, dazu die Rockley-Honig-Note. Beim Plantation habe ich aber noch fruchtige Noten Richtung Nektarine oder Mango und Vanille. Der CG wirkt dagegen etwas eindimensionaler und auch etwas bissig. Der höhere ABV (56%) des CG wirkt nicht zum Vorteil. Am Gaumen dann umgekehrte Vorzeichen. Der Plantation wirkt mit seinen 47,8% leider etwas dünn (so wie auch schon der RA WIRD 2000). Wegen der Klasse Nase bleibt der Plantation aber mein Sieger

Hier erkennt man schon die typische Rockley-DNA. Aber an den Rum Artesanal 2000 kommt er nicht heran.

Sehr vielseitige Nase. Nach einer Weile im Glas kommt Walnuss hinzu. Gefällt mir gut! Am Gaumen erscheint der Rum leider nicht so facettenreich wie es die Nase verspricht. Der Nachklang ist relativ kurz und unspektakulär.

Ein sehr guter Barbados WIRD! Das Profil gefällt mir! In Fassstärke dürfte er vermutlich hervorragend sein! Erstaunlich fand ich den relativ kurzen Abgang

Second taste and I feel soft smoked bacon

Tolles Profil im Rockley-Stil mit Honig, Rauch, Tee, Holz, sowie dezenten tropischen Früchten und feiner Mineralik. Das bleibt auch am Gaumen erhalten, leider wirkt hier aber die reduzierte Alkoholstärke nachteilig und schlägt sich in einem verdünnt wirkenden Profil nieder. Schade, denn grundsätzlich ist hier aromatisch ein tolles Spektrum geboten.
