Bam, once you open this bottle you know where in the world you are. An elegant and yet fruity rum with some wood, smoke, spice and delicious fruit. A bit expensive but we'll worth the money 😀

Heute gibt‘s mal einen 4er flight New Yarmouth 1994. Eines meiner Lieblingsprofile, Appleton 21yr goes SVW. #4 geht an Thompson Bros. Etwas holziger, einfacher, aus dem Gedächnis sehr ähnlich dem Kill Devil. #3 der Valinch & Mallet. Ausgewogener, etwas weicher, weniger kräftig (soweit man davon im 60% Bereich sprechen kann) und zusätzlich eine angenehme Keks-/Gebäcksnote. #2, nun wird’s eng, der Excellence Rhum. Hammernase mit einer wunderbaren animalischen Note a la Caroni 21 Extra Strong, im Mund etwas holziger. Kokosnuss und getrocknete Marille. #1 geht an Swell de Spirits. Sehr kräftig, rund und ausgewogen. Getrocknete Marille, was mir sehr gefällt. Im Mund der Hammer, warm, etwas weniger Holz als die anderen, langer, toller Abgang.

heute zwei altehrwürdige Vertreter ihres Fachs: der Excellence Rhum NY 94 im Vergleich mit dem FRC Bottle Shop NY 94. Beide 27/28 Jahre im Fass verbracht, beide davon 24 in tropischen Gefilden, beide 67,8% ABV. Deshalb auch nicht verwunderlich, dass beide an der Nase zunächst sehr ähnlich sind, mit ordentlich Kokosnuss, Vanille und Fass. Der ER geht vielleicht noch etwas mehr in Richtung Anis, Politur und Kuchen. Beim FRC geht die Tendenz mehr in Richtung tropische Früchte (Papaya), Marzipan und Orangeat. Am Gaumen kann ich kaum Unterschiede ausmachen. Der hohe ABV ist bei beiden gleichermaßen gut eingebunden ist. Unterm Strich für mich beide auf derselben Stufe.

Un New Yarmouth au profil atypique qui propose de quelque chose à l’opposé des esters jamaïcains. Le nez est très élégant et complexe, avec de belles notes pâtissières, des épices douces et du chocolat, le tout talonné par une corbeille de fruits exotiques, de l’orange et des fruits secs. En bouche, les épices viennent d’abord avant de laisser place à des notes rôties, des noix, des saveurs d’espresso et un léger boisé fumé. La noix de coco et les fruits secs apportent de la gourmandise à ce rhum, dont les 67,8% d’alcool sont très bien intégrés. La finale, très longue, chaude et sèche, prolonge les saveurs toastées et rôties décrites précédemment. Une très belle sélection signée Excellence Rhum.

Ausgezeichneter NY94! Sehr ansprechende Nase. Perfekte Kombination aus Frucht, Würze und Süße.

Ein sehr guter Vertreter der 94er NY! Pendelt bei mir zwischen sehr gut und ausgezeichnet… ich hätte mir noch etwas mehr Frucht gewünscht.. aber das ist klagen auf hohem Niveau

Intensiver Rum. Erinnerte mich in der Nase leicht an PEZ Traubenzucker mit Beeren Geschmack. Im Mund leichtes Kribbeln vom Alkohol. Schönes Gesamtpaket. Sehr guter Rum.

Sehr guter Vertreter der NY 94 Serie, auf Augenhöhe mit dem Swell de Spirits.

Le rhum est puissant, gourmand sur les solvants et les fruits tropicaux. On retrouve le côté jamaïcain mais beaucoup plus doux en ester « distillation en colonne » c’est le meilleur rhum que j’ai goûté pour l’instant !
