This was my contribution to the tasting and once we cracked open the bottle the flavours started spreading. Fruity with roasted wood and very good ABV integration. I really like the floral note and warm/spicy touch to the palate. Price to quality is very good in my mind.

Was für eine schöne, komplexe und intensive Nase: fruchtig und würzig. Wunderschöne Orangen- und Mandarinen-Noten mit Süßkirsche und säuerlicher Kiwi bzw. Stachelbeere unterlegt. Zunächst ist da noch eine herbe Süße von Ahornsirup, die immer süßer Richtung Orangensirup geht. Ich finde noch Vanille und einen leichten Hauch Tabakblätter. Die hohen % sind kaum zu vernehmen. Gaumen: ebenso intensiv und lecker wie die Nase, dazu sehr vollmundig. Fruchtig, würzig, leicht holzig. Ich finde genau so getrocknete Orange, wie Dörrpflaume, getrocknete Johannisbeere und tropische Früchte. Auch ist eine leichte Minz-Note zu finden. Dazu noch etwas harziger Tabak. Er hat auch eine schöne Nussigkeit, vlt. Paranuss. Ein wirklich hervorragender, alter EMB, bei dem der Alkohol super gut eingebunden ist.

im anderen Glas den RA EMB 95, und ich muss sagen, dass beide schon sehr ähnlich sind. Der RC wirkt vielleicht noch eine Spur frischer/blumiger (und etwas mehr Richtung Marzipangebäck gehend), das kann aber auch einfach daran liegen, dass der RA schon länger offen (und mehr oxidiert) ist. Da es den RA zT immer noch zum deutlich günstigern Preis zu haben gibt, stellt er für mich momentan die bessere Wahl dar.

Für eine Top-Bewertung er mir gerade etwas zu holzig.

Ohne direkten Vergleich sicher einer der besten EMB 95 neben dem Velier!

Mir persönlich zu Kräuterig, zu holzig und zu säuerlich. Da gibt's mMn deutlich bessere EMB's... Alkohol könnte auch deutlich besser integriert sein.

Toller alter EMB! Im direkten Vergleich zum Velier 2010 spürbar besser integrierter Alkohol, und, wenig überraschend, mehr Holz. Im Vergleich zum Bottle Shop 1995 etwas weniger Menthol, dafür etwas öliger und wuchtiger, insgesamt aber auf Augenhöhe. EMB bleibt einfach eines meiner Lieblingsprofile; Rums dieser Art und dieses Reifegrades trinken zu können ist ohne Zweifel ein Privileg.

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.

Ein sehr guter 95er EMB auf Augenhöhe mit dem RA 95! Geschmacklich unterscheiden sie sich nur in Nuancen! Dieser ist vielleicht ein Ticken fruchtiger! Meine EMB-Referenz bleibt aber der Velier 2010

Für mich einer der Besten EMBs
