“Ich kann nicht verstehen, wie man einen 2007er so ein Finish geben muss. Für sich ist das eigentlich ein sauguter Jahrgang. Für mich definitiv zu deutlicher Sherry Einfluss der in einem modrigen alten Kellergewölbe vom Geschmack endet. So gar nicht mein Profil was ich mir vorstelle. Erinnert mich auch an Pappkartons, die jahrelang in einem feuchten Keller standen und vor sich hingammeln.”

“Für mich persönlich etwas zu viel Sherry-Noten. Eigentlich hat das ein guter 2007er gar nicht nötig.”

“Das Finish gibt dem Rum vor allem am Gaumen eine bestimmte Richtung, für mich weg vom HD-Obstkorb (der die Nase dominiert), hin zu einer trockeneren, wurzel- oder gemüseartigen Anmutung, vor allem nach hinten raus. Habe ich noch nie so erlebt. Ich mag - und das ist echt ein Alleinstellungsmerkmal innerhalb meiner bisherigen Verkostungen - vor allem den Abgang, der mich in meiner Vorstellung in einen alten, staubigen Fasskeller führt, in dem vielleicht auch Kartoffeln über den Winter gelagert werden. Fazit: Ja, Experiment gelungen, wenngleich nicht herausragend. Wiedererkennungseffekt durchaus vorhanden, aber kein all time favorite. Interessanter Rum.”
