„Überraschend mild für die Alkoholstärke , geschmacklich ist er mir zu bitter und zu viel Leder, Lederpolitur, Minze, viel Holz und Bleistiftspähne. Dennoch typisches 95er Profil aber da kenne ich bessere aus dem Jahrgang...“

„Im Direktvergleich mit dem Artesanal und Rum Club mit der deutlichsten Süsse und einem sehr runden Profil. Gefällt mir sehr gut, tolle Ausgewogenheit, ohne zu Lasten der aromatischen Komplexität zu gehen. Eindrückliches Niveau.“

„Nochmal neu verkostet gegen COR no10 und Rum Club. Alle auf ähnlichen Niveau. cOR am fruchtigsten, Tara mit viel Tannin Sehr leckerer und schön öliger 1995 EMB … taugt mir. Minze, Politur, Leder, Holz, Frucht und sogar Blumen. Viel besser, als ich erwartet habe … ich gebe hier eine starke 91 mit Tendenz zum Aufrunden (was ich vielleicht beim nächsten Probieren tun werde)“

„Richtig spannender EMB 1995. Etwas anders als die EMB 1995, die ich bislang hatte.“

„Richtig guter EMB . Sehr Fruchtig mit toller Alkohol Integration. Nase kommt mit schöner Süße ,tropischen Früchten und etwas Ester . Am Gaumen wieder Tropische Früchte, kräuter und etwas Leder ... Holz eher nicht der Rede wert. PLV finde ich hier gerade noch angemessen.“

„Nose EMB, you are the holy mark of Jamaica! So clearly EMB that it almost hurts. See, lavender sticks and fermented mangoes, pineapples and bananas. Precious rose oil (doTERRA quality) and thick liquorice. Wet earth and muddy roots from the jungle nearby (what?!) plus some hints of nutmeg and cloves, giving it a nice christmassy twist. That's complexity lasses and lads. After a while in the glass one also finds some stewed apricots, alright. The nose rattles like a snake. Palate Bursts like a cannonball! Thick and heavy the initial start coats the whole palate, delivering bittersweet pink grapefruits juice, caramel, pineapples, dark chocolate and hints of rubber, almost caroni-esque. Very good. 65,6%, sure? Wonderfully integrated we'd say. Now, it's lacking a wee bit of creaminess compared to the Velier, but that just might be our personal taste. Still it has a profound sweetness with being super sippable and delicate compared to some other old Jamaicans, like the two Monymusk 1984 by Velier for example. Finish Quite sure you can taste it even the second day after. So much about the length. The cloves, the grapefruit peels and the rubber just don't wanna leave the party.“

„Wieder mal ein extrem guter Vertreter der MM95! Im Vergleich zu meinen persönlichen Benchmark von Velier vielleicht etwas weniger Tiefe, mehr Fassnoten.“

„Am Community Tasting Nürnberg wurde ich tief in der Welt von Clarendon eingeführt und habe diese lieben gelernt. Wobei für mich die Unterschiede zwischen 7 verschiedenen Abfüllungen eher gering waren. Mir haben alle geschmeckt. Wahrscheinlich lag es eher an der Menge warum ich nichts mehr wirklich unterscheiden konnte. Werde alle nochmals in Ruhe einzeln Nachverkosten.“

„Hammerstoff. Frucht, Holz, Eucalyptos, Tabak in perfekter Symbiose. Abgang leicht bitter aber für 26 Jahre Fasslagerung mehr als vertretbar. Alkohol mit fast 66% sensationell eingebunden. Traumstoff!!!“
