A 2003 T.D.LDThe often belong to the "dirty" and especially mint monsters...The nose starts relaxed with bourbon, vanilla and barrel. If I smell deeper into the glass, the alcohol jumps out at me and almost obscured also mint and freshness/coolness! It's hard for me to get past the alcohol. Some fruitiness (dried fruit) and spice can be found. Palate: first an unexpected malt note, then a whole bunch of mint and kumquat, quite bitter, barrel and spice again, all within a pleasant framework. Overall quite sharp but that may be due to my extended rum break. The mint and light bitterness linger long and complement each other well. A nice, intense T.D.L with a lot of mint character, which could be quietly more complex.

initially quite on the minty side on the road (but not necessarily the pungent mentholige). After some dwell time then also a portion of dried fruit, bicycle tube and something sweet towards toffee. On the palate, workshop, charred barrel and again subtle sweetness, perhaps more like just boiled down jam...the WJ definitely plays right up there (but I'll have to compare it again with the Rasta Morris directly). Many thanks to Tobias for the sample!

Boah, der ist wirklich ein Kraftpaket! Ich liebe Minze - und davon hat der richtig viel. Und erst der Abgang! Laaaang und lääääänger! Ja, da ist ordentlich Alkohol im Spiel. Hier kommt er mir aber sehr gelegen. Natürlich muss ich diesen Rum noch mit dem neuen Platzhirschen von Asta Morris vergleichen, aber er hinterlässt auch so schon einen bärenstarken Eindruck. Ich bin froh, mir eine Flasche zugelegt zu haben. Kleiner Wermutstropfen: An der Nase ist der Rum für mein Empfinden etwas unscheinbar, da hätte ich bei einem Blindtasting Mühe, überhaupt einen T.D.L zu detektieren. Trotzdem 89 Punkte, denn der Gaumen, vor allem der Abgang, reißt heute einfach alles wieder raus.

In der Nase, Orange, Orangenschale, Fass/Holz. Am Gaumen erst total geil fruchtig, für mich Orange dann Minze, Holz und dreckige Noten.

First impression: minty (not overpowering) and a bit dirty TDL powerhouse. Takes some time for the fruity notes to come forward. Looooong aftertaste.
