“#4255 16.09.2023 Whisky N Rum Show 2023. A rather whisky like rum. Not bad and the price tag is pretty OK. Fruity with a smoky note and light mint. ABV could have been better integrated. There was a light coffee note in the empty glass.”

“Typisch für Balcones spielt hier die Fassinteraktion und das Spiel mit der Eiche eine große Rolle. Der Brand hat jedoch eine pikante Chili-Schärfe an sich, die ich so von ihrem Pot Still Rum nicht gewohnt bin. Ansonsten ist die gewohnt feine Eichenaromatik mit Kakao, Vanille und Kokos vorhanden und verbindet sich auf natürliche Weise mit dem melassigen Destillat. Aus dem Hintergrund spitzeln immer wieder tropische Trockenfrüchte wie Papaya und Mango im Zusammenspiel mit Kirsche und Kolanuss durch…Doctor Pepper Cola? Im Vergleich zu einem anderen, mir bekanntem Batch, wirkt er aber irgendwie leichter und hat nicht diese spannende, latent dreckige Note von regelmäßig frequentiertem, aber sauberem Turnhallenboden. Bissl zu scharf; Wasser kann ihn jedoch zähmen und wer den American Whisky Stil der Brennerei in Form von Rum mag oder kennenlernen möchte, kann hier ruhig probieren.”

“Ein sanft geräuchertes Karamellbonbon mit leichter Fruchtnote - hat etwas Eigenständiges, was absolut positiv zu vermerken ist. Die Komplexität ist noch eher überschaubar, aber was bleibt ist ein sehr süffiger Rum, der die Neugierde weckt, was von Richland in Zukunft noch zu erwarten sein wird.”
