“Ja, das ist ein typischer El Dorado. Die wirken immer irgendwie konzentrierter als andere Rums. Aber muss das mit so einem Finish wirklich sein? Für mich jedenfalls nicht. Hätte den Versailles lieber ohne genossen. Trotzdem ganz guter Rum. Nichts für jeden Abend, ist ein etwas anstrengender Bursche, der Aufmerksamkeit braucht. Update 2022-11-28: Heute gar nicht anstrengend, sondern von Anfang an einfach süffig - was wohl am Finish liegt. Sollte ich tatsächlich noch ein Port-Finish-Aficionado werden? Bekommt jedenfalls glatt 2 Punkte mehr als bei der ersten Verkostung. Trotzdem zu hoher Flaschenpreis.”

“Pretty well rounded release with fruits and wood balanced pretty well. The Port cask is present without being too dominant. Needs to rest for a while before the full experience is there.”

“So in any case, the Ruby Port is also quite tasty compared to the Sauternes Cask, it is very fruity on the nose and on the palate.Addendum: Photo the Ruby Port Cask Finish is also already very drinkable, it must be said.Best to leave 15-30 minutes in the glass.”
