Nice Agricole with decent power. I do not find the aforementioned missing notes here.

The DNA of the series remains recognizable, in addition, a sweet mango note as well as light sulfur appears in the nose - extraordinary and still quite interesting. Unfortunately, the tide turns fundamentally in the mouth - it becomes soapy-floral. Although the basic profile remains recognizable, it is too clearly overlaid by the aforementioned off-notes in my perception. Unsurprisingly, no other picture emerges on the palate - thus unfortunately disappointing.

Wieder Eiche, erdig, sehr trocken. Und dann - diesmal zurückhaltend - die parfümierte Seife. Im Mund prickelnd und langer, guter Abgang. Intensive Zitrusfrüchte. Ausgewogen, gute Trinkstärke. Von oben (2015) runter verkostet bis jetzt der Beste.

Großes VSGB-Vertical-live-Tasting von und mit Luca Gargano. 22.10.2022, 16:39. Nase: Holzig, aber eher Richtung Karton, kräuterig-wurzelig mit ein wenig Essig, Sahnetoffe mit einem Spritzer Zitrone, säuerlicher Johannisbeere und mehlige Banane. Dazu leicht Sesam. Gaumen: sehr viel Säure zu Beginn, leicht metallisch, bitter und in Zitrone übergehend. Dahinter kommt Heu und grasiges Zuckerrohr. Wirkt verdünnt. Im Abgang bleiben Zitrone und Heu. Platz: N: 5/10 G: 2/10

Not the best actually not even mediocre.

Leider auch hier eine deutliche Seifen-Fehlnote.

Ohne Witz ist das der mit Abstand ekelhafteste "richtige" Rum, den ich jemals getrunken habe. Diese Seifennote ist sowohl in der Nase als auch auf dem Gaumen derart präsent und ekelhaft. Kaum zu glauben, dass Luca sowas abgefüllt hat...
