How does this rum taste?

A rich, complex Versailles 2006 from Guyana with a harmonious balance of dry fruits, caramel, and wood. Lingering licorice and oak finish, slightly marred by an unexpected schnaps note. Bold but not overpowering at 52.6% ABV. A rare, enjoyable find.

“Unsurprisingly, the 2006s are quite similar on the nose: dried fruit, subtle spicy and woody notes. What stands out for me in direct comparison is a mineral note that also remains present on the palate. In addition, the obligatory dried plum, leather, licorice, wood, some roasted aromas and caramel sweetness. Aromatic with an appealing complexity. For me, the slight minerality is the most recognizable feature. Overall balanced and with pleasant alcohol integration. In contrast, however, the other 2006s bring significantly more aromatic complexity, here everything seems a little too dull in comparison. We remain at a high level, no question, but in the slipstream of the other representatives of the vintage. In comparison to the 1994 representatives, I repeat my impressions of the other 2006s: much less heaviness, the plum notes appear here more in tandem with currants, the dark tones of wood, licorice, leather and caramel are much less pronounced. Despite the aromatic complexity of this bottling, I am inclined to call it "REV Light". The spectrum of the 2006s also has its charm and the character is undoubtedly recognizable, but in my eyes the REV profile benefits greatly from the long ageing and the resulting complexity. However, the reference points for the younger bottlings can also be described as almost unfair, especially for proven lovers of the 1994 REVs.”

“Another fine representative of the Versailles REV. To be fair to each other, I'd have to compare them together. I must say I really like these profiles, they're right up my alley. So I'll give it the same score as the RomDeLuxe collectors, because I find it just as pleasing!”

“Tasted together with the Rome de Luxe Guyana REV 2006! They are quite similar... but the Milano has a bit more of the classic flavors and the mineral! That gives im a few points more!”
