Wow, this was a major step forward and I'm happy i didn't start with this one because then the previous one would have had a worse score. I knew this one would be good, but it was super good. A very limited release well worth the price tag on release. This one needs to rest for a good while before you give it a go and I also recommend a few drops of water after the first nosing and palate because it releases a lot of flavours. The nose has smoky wood, rubber and tar followed by fruit, vanilla, tobacco and a bit of chocolate. The palate is balance, complex and sweet with smoky wood, tar, rubber and fruit trailed by vanilla and caramel. The finish is long, very long and has smoky wood, tar, rubber and vanilla. Try to leave the empty glass for later because it only gets better on the nose.

Weiterer formidabler Vertreter aus 1996. Tolle Karamellsüsse, sehr gut eingebundener Alkohol. Fast etwas zu geradlinig, auch wenn das bei einem Rum auf diesem Niveau zunächst irritierend sein könnte; diese Kritik ist tatsächlich nur dann möglich, wenn man noch bessere Abfüllungen im Direktvergleich hat - und da wird die Luft schon etwas dünn.
