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.

Ein nicht uninteressanter Rum, der mich stark an den einen jungen PM erinnert. Vorallem die Birnen/Apfel Note und die leichte Säure bringt mir diesen Stil in Erinnerung. Hier wäre meiner Meinung nach mit etwas mehr Reifung noch deutlich mehr möglich gewesen. Der Alkohol könnte auch eleganter eingebunden sein. So bleibt es ein junger Guyana Rum mit interessanten Momenten, der aber unter seinen Möglichkeiten bleibt.

Kommt recht frisch daher, weiss aber zu gefallen, Fruchtigkeit trifft auf Mineralik, Würzigkeit und Rauch. Durchaus gefälliger junger Rum.

The alcohol could have been better integrated into the profile because it bites even when rested. Adding a bit of water opens up the profile a bit and it gets more fruity. I like the smoky wood in the palate mixed with dried fruit and some light caramel. Dry on the palate and finish.

Don't have so much experience in Demerara rum (except El Dorado range) and I think after a (very) long opening, the rum is great

Nez très cognac. Olive. Anis. Des fruits acides. En bouche, profil intéressant mais alcool très présent. Iodé. Boisé. Caramélisé. Végétal. Terreux. L'alcool reste trop présent.

Von dem typischen Albion-Profil kann ich leider nichts erkennen, weil natürlich die tropische Reifung fehlt. Guyana ist deutlich zu erkennen. Wahrscheinlich hätte ich ihn blind als einen jungen PM97 eingeschätzt. Insgesamt zu jung, Alkohol nicht wirklich gut integriert.

Pas mal ce PM mais rien d'exceptionnelle non plus

Verkostet mit dem The Nectar 2012 Albion gegen welchen er – für mich – die Nase knapp vorne hat. Etwas fetter, würziger und süßer in der Nase und auch im Mund. Auch leicht öliger. Die sind meine ersten Albions. Ich denke, da geht noch was … kann ruhig noch etwas im Fass bleiben.

Trop anise pour moi et mauvaise intégration de l’alcool

Erinnert an verschiedene PMs, erreicht jedoch nicht die Qualität der hochwertigen Abfüllungen. Der Nectar 2010 hat für mich im direkten Vergleich die Nase vorn.

A new boring tasting session with young pot still single cask Guyanese rums. Kill Devil 12y, 61,1% Barikenn 8y, 63,3% The Nectar 10y, 62,5% SBS 10y, 64,6% C: W wine N: 5min in and this is pure coastal saltiness. Nasty rum and most likely not aged in the tropics. God, I love these young continental pot still Guyanese, I find then bold, pure distillate, no cask, minimal angel’s share. After a while I get lime and a blend of red apples and celery, petrol fumes and off course oysters. M: In your face natural blend of sweet lime and apple juice. Not complex but still it ends with floral notes and ester. How can a rum with such nasty and salty nose become so sweet? I love this! F: Gentle smoke and sweet B: Yes. Why boring? Every rum brings something slightly different, but I like them all.
