Tag 24 RumX-Kalender Was für ein ungewöhnlicher Rum! Ich konnte ihn in keiner Ecke zuordnen! St. Lucia hätte ich nie vermutet! Black Adder war aufgrund der Kohlereste im Glas für mich fast zu 100% sicher! Die Aromen liegen mehr auf der pflanzlichen Seite, aber harmonieren ordentlich, da die Gewürze guten Kontrast bieten! Der St. Lucia gefällt mir sehr

This was a huge surprise and the price for this release has gone through the roof. I consider myself lucky to have tried it and I couldn't get a bottle at this tasting. Wound have loved one on my shelf to surprise people. Intense and fruity with some nice floral notes. Warm/spicy on the palate and very good ABV integration. Lightly dry on the palate with a very long finish. If you get a chance you should try it!

St. Lucia 99 ist einfach genial! Die roten Früchte, Tabak, Vanille, Leder…herrlich! Vielleicht war der Nobilis No. 17 SLD noch ein kleinwenig runder an der Nase, aber dafür ist der Blackadder brutal zupackend am Gaumen, mit verkohltem Holz, frischer Minze und langem Abgang…

Rum X Advent 24.12.22 Schon sehr geile und schmackhafte Sache. Speziell aber intensiv und lecker. Hätte ich blind nicht rausgefunden. Die Nase ist wunderbar vielschichtig und einladend. Im Mund ist er nicht ganz so differnziert. Viel Minze und stark auf Grund der Volumen. Wobei diese ordentlich eingebunden sind.

Un très beau rhum, quelques points en moins pour des goûts un peu heurtés et qui se mélangent pas très bien. Le verre vide sent très bon.

Un rhum de Sainte-Lucie très charmeur et attirant. Le nez se veut très riche et prenant, avec de nombreuses arômes de fruits tropicaux, de fruits secs, des notes florales et mentholées, des herbes, des amandes grillées et des notes pâtissières. L’ensemble est homogène, exubérant et gourmand. En bouche, l’attaque est puissante, vive et imprégnée des herbes aromatiques, du menthol, des arômes terreux, des épices et des notes pimentées. Les fruits arrivent en seconde vague avec des agrumes, des fruits exotiques et des fruits secs. On ressent l’alcool, présent à un fort degré, qui persiste malgré les qualités indéniables d’intégration de celui-ci. La finale est très longue, portée par des épices chaudes, des herbes, des notes rôties, des tannins, des notes florales et boisées. Un rhum atypique et bien élaboré, qui montre que Sainte-Lucie a de quoi jouer dans la cour des grands terroirs du rhum, mais qui nécessite pas mal de temps pour être dompter et pour capter toute son expression.

RumXmas 2022, #24, blind: I could be on board with the possibility of this being Jamaican and low ester. But I lack the knowhow for being very exact. That minty note is indeed present on the back of the tongue. Licorice in the finish for me. Now time to let it breathe and enjoy a bit of ice cream. Christmas indigestion is coming… Not that much experience with Saint-Lucia rums of this caliber. What a bomb 💣 Maybe a bit too dry/astringent in the finish for me for the 90 point mark. Tea bitterness in the aftertaste.

Very unusual rum from St. Lucia. Very floral and perfumed on the nose and palate.

RumX Adventskalender 24.12. Tolle und intensive Nase! Sehr spannend, komplex und besonders. Hätte ich nicht zuordnen können, wäre aber wahrscheinlich eher auf Trinidad statt St. Lucia. Im Mund sehr intensiv, würzig und etwas verkohlt gepaart mit pflanzlichen Noten, eher getrocknet als frisch wie bei Agricole. Die Nase hätte definitiv über 90 Punkte verdient, der Geschmack hält für mich aber nicht ganz mit.

Was für ne schöne intensive Minz Note ist das bitte, von Anfang bis Ende. Wird nur hinten raus dann doch etwas wie Fleisch zu lange auf dem Grill gelassen oder zu nah an die Kohle gekommen. dafür minimale Abzüge. Ansonsten wunderbar blumig mit weniger ausgeprägten Fruchtnoten. Für mich blind auch kaum zu verorten. Hätte vielleicht auf einen TDL getippt.

RumX Adventskalender 24.12.2022: Toller St. Lucia, den ich blind nach Jamaika gesteckt hätte (z.B. Long Pond). Intensiv und würzig, für mich aber in Summe hinter anderen Abfüllungen wie dem GotA.
