How does this rum taste?

A captivating Trinidad rum with a harmonious blend of ripe berries, mint, and a touch of wood. Surprisingly smooth despite its high ABV, it's rich yet described by some as slightly thin. A unique, mint-forward experience with a fruity nose.

“A blind purchase that was absolutely worth it! Yes, I must say, I am even slightly euphoric - what a great rum! If it is still relatively restrained on the nose (and remains so), the fat mint flavors come to the palate really nice, but not as "bright" as with the two RAs of the last two years, but somehow "darker", more tart, drier - almost as if here also a good Monymusk would have set its accents. The alcohol is dosed just right to bring out the flavors perfectly. Yes, this rum is definitely a T.D.L., and one of the really good kind - I'll go one better: for me, the best I've had so far - right after the legendary CDI (RX944)! 😊 Predicate: lip-smacking. 😋 Chapeau, FRC! 👍 Update 2023-07-21: Well, now the disenchantment some have been waiting for after all. 🤷 When tasting again today, I can - except for the mint and the slight euphoria - my then identical perception. Only now I would not hang everything so high - except for the alcohol, which is incredibly well integrated for over 60%. So, only slight disenchantment, not total. But now the rum seems to me put in perspective. It's a good one. Oh well, tasted against the new RA T.D.L (RX15401). He has no chance against it, it is clearly superior in all respects.”

“Nose: intense with fruits, herbs and some dirty notes. Holds up to other early 2000s TDL bottlings. Palate: now this is really suprising… alcohol is almost not noticeable, making this a very smooth experience. While it is very pleasant, I miss quite a bit intensity which the nose implicates (and I‘m used to in good TDLs). This is a really odd one… not a bad, but very unexpected tasting experience.”

“Zweite Verkostung: Diese roten und schwarzen Johannesbeeren in der Nase sind toll!. Sonnst im Vergleich zu anderen leider dünn. Bewertung unverändert. Die Nase erinnert mich sofort an den Swell de Spirits Private Garden No1. Viele rote Früchte und auch wieder schwarze Johannesbeere! Fass oder Holz ist interessanter Weise gar nicht präsent. Am Gaumen kommen die vielen Fruchnoten der Nase leider nicht so deutlich wieder. Stattdessen geht es in Richtung Jod, Salzlake und wird leicht bitter und trocken. Der Gaumen kommt mir zum Ende hin auch irgendwie dünn vor. Der Nachklang ist wieder ein wenig fruchtiger mit einer toller Kiwinote. In Summe sehr gut aber keine Sensation. Preis-Leistung: ok”
