A pretty OK rum but I know they can do far better. Not the best one by far from Rum Nation. The nose is nice and fruity with vanilla and oak. There is a hint of sherry in there as well. The palate is also fruity, a bit dry and slightly bitter with spices and oak. The finish is medium to long, dry and lightly bitter with raisins and vanilla/oak.

Die Sherryfassreifung ergänzt das Versailles-Profil gut. Schöne Nase mit Dörrpflaume, Holz, Kräutern und Vanille. Der würzige Gaumen gefällt mir auch gut. Kein Komplexitätswunder, und es fehlt auch etwas an Power, aber solide gemacht.

Tolle Nase! Am Gaumen fehlen ihm leider ein paar Prozente. Ich mag aber den dunklen, dreckigen Charakter!

Eine schöne, dunkel-würzige Nase mit der Fruchtigkeit von Rosinen, Dörrpflaume Und getrockneter, geschwefelter Aprikose. Das ist dann noch eine angenehme Säure von Johannisbeere. Leicht ledrig und trockenes Holz bringt noch etwas Vanille und Muskat hinein. Am Gaumen hat er einen konzentrierten, salzig-bitter-würzigen Antritt. Malzig, holzig, wieder mit Muskat und etwas Vanille zu Anis übergehend. Flacht aber leider auch schnell ab, was sicher an der Verdünnung auf 45% liegt. Im Abgang würzig mit Anis, leicht bitter und etwas Tee. Schöne Nase, aber leider etwas kurz...

sehr konzentriert, sehr viel Holz und Tannine, etwas Dörrpflaume, Cassis und Ledersattel, viel Bitterkeit, leicht salzig, Lakritze, Muskat und Anis... etwas Thymian und im Abgang auch an sehr holzigen Armagnac erinnernd. mir persönlich insgesamt zu holzig aber dennoch ein top Versailles und sehr rund, lecker und komplex für eine Trinkstärke. der Sherry Einfluss ist auf jeden Fall zum Glück nicht zu dominant!

Hat mir nur bedingt geschmeckt. In der Nase wirkte der Rum abgestanden. Am Gaumen etwas zu dünn. War mir auch etwas zu süß.

Lecker. Leider merke ich die Verdünnung. Sonst wäre sicher mehr drin gewesen.

Viele Guyana-typische Geschmacksaromen vorhanden. Kräuter, viel Holz und dunkle Früchte. Nicht zu komplex und zeitweise scharf.
