„Good New Yarmouth with an unusual finish. Especially in the direct comparison, the whiskey finish stands out clearly. If you like (smoky) whiskey a great bottling with twist.“

„Why do you have to mess up such an incredibly awesome cask from new Yarmouth with a whiskey finish (I suspect strongly islay)? Unfortunately, I did not notice the sample purchase or I can still read nothing of it but it is very noticeable in direct comparison with the predecessor new Yarmouth of valinch ... Super pity ... The money for the yet quite expensive sample I would rather have invested differently😪 Overall still tasty but the whiskey finish ruins for me just everything that has made the origin rum so special ... There is just almost nothing left of the otherwise so awesome 94 NY profile. Especially a pity because that of V&M for me was an absolute benchmark!“

„Oh, actually the first NY94 that doesn't convince me. It tastes as if it has a whiskey finish. In addition, unfortunately diluted.“

„Das Whisky-Finish hätte mir nicht gefehlt, aber der x-te Standard New Yarmouth aus 1994 wohl auch nicht. Insofern ein interessantes Experiment, ich ziehe aber trotzdem die klassischen Vertreter vor.“

„hohe Erwartungen, nachdem der RX 10419 (V&M NY 94, 56,9%) eine 90 Punktewertung eingefahren hat. Die France Edition ist aber deutlich rauchiger an Nase und Gaumen. Dazu auch eher Salzkaramell und weniger die tropischen Früchte. Kommt leider nicht ganz an den Vorgänger heran…“

„Slightly worse than the 26 year old Yarmouth of the same company, the taste is not so smooth. Still a decent rum, just better for the money.“
