“It is already apparent on the nose, but on the palate it is finally clear: this is a top representative from the 1995 Clarendon vintage. Fully ripe tropical fruit, mint, wood, even the age is recognizable - in a positive sense. Very complex, yet round, fresh, yet heavy - the EMB profile of the 1995 vintage is definitely one of the best of the EMB profile and also sets benchmarks for Jamaican releases in general. This rum is further proof of this - only the alcohol integration is not quite on a par with its sister releases. Nevertheless, an exquisite release.”

“RumX Awards 2023. The color is dark and marks 28 years of age. The nose is very fruity, with overripe fruit including pineapple, lime, a hint of encoustic and young woodiness and a light Cementite glue. The palate is rather sweet given the 68.3%, with a basket of fruit that invades the palate, mirabelle plum, carambola, mango and plum. There's acidity and honey, and a lovely, discreet freshness to back it all up. The finish is beautiful, long and complex, with lime, herbs and woody bitterness. A very fine rum, and a favorite for its evolutivity and complexity, with so much fruit that I can hardly define it.”

“The 95 is a more woody profile than the 97, more greedy but less fruity. With aeration, it becomes more and more supple and pleasant. Noble wood, licorice and vanilla supported behind by some very ripe tropical fruits. Great depth. I love it. The mouth is of the same level, it is a very great rum. I find that a well done reduction towards 60/62% would have made it a bit more accessible. But it's a wonderful product, at a great price. I'm glad I picked up a bottle for myself!”
