“glad to have tasted this 🦄. From memory, I would say the RA 1986 WIRD was even more on honey and smoky notes. The Plantation has a broader fruit palette to offer, with mango, papaya and green tea. Distilled exclusively on the Gregg farm, it is idle to argue whether this makes it a 'real' Rockley....”

“According to Alexandre Gabriel, the 1986 definitely does not come from the same still as the 2000 Vulcan Still Rum. Nevertheless, it combines a this herbal component, which is otherwise so rare in Barbados rum. It's my first 1986 Rockley Style, but I can already see why the profile has its fans. In fact, I've never detected such harmonious honey in a rum. Behind the honey there is vanilla and saffron, a hint of tea and lush tropical fruit. In the mouth there is honey again, surprisingly intense esters that bring a lot of tart tropical fruit. A herbaceousness with tobacco, saffron and tea lingers here as well.The finish is much longer and more intense than the 2000The 2000 more exciting, but the 1986 more complete”
