“Nose is reminiscent of other young PMs with wood and some continental fruits. Starts off with intense burnt notes. Some herbs with anis. A hint of chocolate appears over time.On the palate I get some acidity which I attribute to the high proof. However, the taste is surprisingly sweet with toffee and raisins which show up unexpectedly. Don’t take this wrong, this is very powerful and demanding stuff, far off from crowd pleasing sweetness of course.While this is the first AW I had in the glas I’m somewhat intrigued by the profile. Happy to explore some more bottlings. On the first go, SBS and the Nectar feel pretty similar. The latter maybe a little less sweet with more chocolate rather than toffee. Alcohol noticeable in both bottlings.”

“A not uninteresting rum that reminds me strongly of the one young PM. Vorallem the pear / apple note and the slight acidity brings me this style in memory. Here, in my opinion, with a little more maturation would have been significantly more possible. The alcohol could also be more elegantly integrated. So it remains a young Guyana Rum with interesting moments, but remains below its potential.”

“Kommt recht frisch daher, weiss aber sowohl in der Nase als auch am Gaumen zu gefallen. Trotz der höheren Alkoholstärke im Vergleich zur Sample X Albion-Abfüllung schlägt selbiger weniger exzessiv durch; keine Frage, die über 60% sind erkennbar, nehmen aber den tropischen Fruchtnoten, den Gewürzen und den leichten Karamellanklängen zu keinem Zeitpunkt den Platz, um selbst in Erscheinung zu treten. Solide Abfüllung, aber nicht ansatzweise vergleichbar mit den tropischen gelagerten Albions.”
