Non amo i rum a distillazione a colonna a causa del forte sentore di vaniglia e caramello che predominano su tutto, questo ne ha la giusta miscelazione. Un buon rum, ma non mi convince a pieno. Acquistato a 55 euro, non lo comprerei assolutamente ad un prezzo maggiore. Purtroppo nel mondo dei rum di un certo livello c'è troppa speculazione anche su rum di dubbie qualità.

Voll, warm und sehr gut. Sehr ausgewogen und süffig. Ein Full-Proof Easy Sipper, falls es das gibt.

extrem runder Rum für so ein junges alter und die hohe alkoholstärke. Granate. nach wie vor für mich einer der besten PLV Fassstärke Rums auf dem Markt. ❤️🙏🇦🇬 im Vergleich zum neuen english harbour straight From the cask liegt dieser hier ne Spur vorne da er deutlich mehr Aromen zu bieten hat und mir insgesamt noch besser gefällt, mehr Frucht, mehr Power und mehr Komplexität.💥

Intéressant mais pas inoubliable. Vendu à petit prix à sa sortie, il ne valait pas énormément plus

verkostet zusammen mit dem English Harbour High Congener. Der erste Eindruck an der Nase: der Velier hat von allem etwas mehr, mehr Toffee, mehr Gewürz, mehr Schokolade…an Gaumen kommt der High Congener etwas kantiger daher, der Velier ist insgesamt runder…fairerweise muss man aber auch anerkennen, dass die Unterschiede an der Nase und am Gaumen nicht so ausgeprägt sind, dass sie den deutlichen Preisunterschied rechtfertigen würden.

Der braucht Zeit im Glas Nase: Anfangs fruchtig frisch, später sanft an Konfekt erinnernd Gaumen: zunächst bitter-holzig, dann getrocknete Pflaume mit Restsüsse! Alkohol sehr gut eingebunden. Im Abgang setzt sich sich das Geschmacksempfinden fort! Aber deutlich trockener Ein guter Rum

This is unmistakably an English Harbour. The taste is quite much like the 5yo, but with much longer and stronger finish. My feeling is that it tastes very much like an genuine and typical rum a little from the past.

This is one of my benchmark ‘go to’ drinking rums! Well rounded, still remarkably well priced and amazing value for money compared to others on the market at current! It has some stunning traits of a dirty Caroni rum (glue and dirty/solvent like notes) but the other ‘fresher’ notes are far more prominent. The alcohol burn is quite forceful upon the first sip however this develops into lots of vanilla and an almost ‘Jaffa Cake’ like flavour when the young woody notes and orange notes combine... love it and always keep a bottle spare in the rum cellar, even if it doesn’t hang around long!
