Leider eher ein schwächerer Vertreter des 98er Jahrgangs. Ein Profil welches ich sehr schätze. Benchmark ist für mich hier der RA HD 98 und TRC HD 98 „The Beast“. Habe die beiden neuen Abfüllungen von Colours of Rum direkt vergleichen und No.7 ist einen Tick schlechter als No.6 in meinen Augen. Die längere Lagerung hat dem Rum nicht gut getan. Weder in der Nase noch am Gaumen will sich richtiges HD 98 Feeling einstellen. Im Abgang noch etwas Holzigkeit. Preislich mit 220€ für 0,7 Liter auch sportlich angesiedelt. Davon wandert keine Flasche in meine Sammlung. Edition 7 bekommt 83 Punkte.

Got a sample of this for free from RumX. It’s a pot still single cask rum distilled in 1998 whereafter it has been continental aged for 23 years in an ex-rum oak barrel before bottled in 247 bottles at 58,7%. It’s an HLCF, which is quite esters rich. Overall a complex, funky, esters rich and flavorful rum.

Guter Rum, aber für einen 1998 HLCF kein Kracher. Besonders nicht zum aufgerufenen Preis. Die beiden (No6 und No7) sind sich sehr ähnlich. Die fast gleiche Farbe der Etiketten ist daher eigentlich fast schon lustig. Der 7 gewinnt für mich an der Nase, der 6er am Gaumen
