How does this rum taste?

The FRC Dutch Windmill Collection (Oranjemolen) offers a smoky-sweet nose of dried apricots and vanilla, but the palate disappoints with dominant sweet sherry and lack of depth. It’s complex but feels unfinished. Best for sherry lovers.

“As expected, the weakest of the three current windmills, for me without recognition value. Maybe what for a high-quality cocktail? In the nose soft wood (here he gets 76 points from me). On the palate, the rum is rather tart for my liking, I notice nothing of the sweetness of any PX cask (68 points).”

“Die dritte Windmühle, höchster ABV, aber mit 4 Jahren auch der jüngste und dann wohl reflexartig in ein Pedro Fass gefüllt, damit schon möglichst viele Aromen zu finden sind ?! Nase: schon deutlicher Sherry-Einfluss, rauchig-süß mit getrockneter Aprikose und Rosine, dazu dezent Rotwein. Holzig-würzig mit viel Vanille. Viel mehr kommt das aber auch nicht. Relativ beliebig. 6,9 Gaumen: der Süß-Sherry dominiert hier eindeutig. Wieder rauchig-süß, leicht Lakritze und Vanille, auch etwas pfeffrig zu Beginn. Hinten wird er noch etwas speckig. Wieder die typische getrocknete Aprikose. Wer Sherry mag, kommt hier auf seine Kosten. Ich brauche das nicht. 6,7 Gefällt mir von den dreien am wenigsten.”

“Im Direktvergleich der drei Zuidam-FRC-Releases das komplexeste und zugleich reifste Profil. Für mich deshalb auch mit der Nase vorne in der Gesamtbewertung, weil die aromatische Komplexität für mich hier am ausgeprägtesten ist.”
