Blindly I would have guessed REV (malt, licorice, molasses, gentle) in the smell, KFM (earth, wood, leather, black tea, strong) in the taste. Definitely 100% Guyana and quite to my taste. A very fine droplet at a comparatively affordable price. I'm afraid I'll have to stock up on this rum. 😋

MDS, i.e. from the Savalle still (of which there are two at DDL). The color seems to me very dark, probably, colored. The high ABV is already clearly perceptible on the nose and palate. A few drops of water make the RumClub rounder. Otherwise, a nice profile with spices, dried fruit, tobacco, leather....

The color and age suggest that the rum came into the barrel colored after production.The nose is not as heavy and powerful as many of the El Dorade Rare Cask bottlings. The alcogol tweaks quite noticeably - not unusual at 65%. The nose is pleasing with burnt sugar, vanilla and bourbon and some dried fruit - but not particularly complex overall. Reminds me of good Spanish style rums.Then a consistent continuation on the palate: more dark chocolate and dark dried fruit. Again the alcohol strikes me unpleasantly.In the aftertaste further no surprise. The emphasis here is on the barrel notes, spice and coffee with a little harmless bitterness.Conclusion: Fair bepreistert standard Guyanarum, just "very good "Is possibly due to my form of the day and my hay fever nose, I will repeat the tasting soon.

Super powerful Guyana, immediately molasses, dry fruits, dark chocolate and a few dirty notes that one is more accustomed to from Trinidad. The alcohol is super integrated. I personally have left the rum just under 30 minutes in the glass before I tasted it, that has definitely done him good. Great bottling once again from RumDepot, I am thrilled. Price performance I find this rum also really fair!

First impression without comparison was really great, for the price for me close to 9 points. The second time compared to other rums I have to correct something. On the palate you notice alcohol first and also not insanely complex. Nevertheless, still very good. Above all, the PLV is top. Under 80 euros for 0.5 are worth it.

I could just so get hold of this bottling something before it was sold out. Colored the rum in the glass with its dark tones of course immediately awakens certain expectations of fullness and heaviness, which then show themselves in the tasting but initially only very shy. In the nose I imagine with closed eyes first even slightly lemony notes, as if the rum would be significantly younger than it actually is. Otherwise, there are mainly dried fruits in the glass.On the tongue then shows first of all the alcohol, which is still noticeable even after it has already been diluted by saliva. After that comes a lot of wood and smoke - you can taste the barrel. Unfortunately, the alcohol is still very much to the fore. My nose and tongue do not quite agree on the interpretation.Only in the finish it becomes slowly coherent - the sharpness of the alcohol turns into warmth, and so slowly come through the flavors that had it a little harder earlier.This rum was not love at first sight, but somehow I pour it then again and again, because he pleases me despite its edges with each time better.

Ui beautiful board. Dark, woody, malty, powerful. The 65% gives a long warm finish. The alcohol could have been integrated a little better for my taste. Nevertheless, a very good rum for a reasonable price.

So really warm I do not get with the buddy here, although he warms up well.😉Much spice, much wood, too much dye. The dried fruits are completely lost on the palate. Burnt flavors remain at the end. It will remain with the 10cl.
