Tasted against the sister bottling at 68.5 eser has the rounder and less pungent nose. The other is possibly Somewhat more diverse. Slightly different but on points for me about the same. Both very good but both no exception 94s NY - but in any case a very good PLV.

Arrived today, immediately opened, so it must. 😉 Preliminary: Do not be deterred by the sealing, which is very opening-friendly.After the unproblematic opening of the handy bottle (my new favorite size 😍) I wanted to shout "Hallelujah!", so a great fragrance flowed towards me. I thought I was already in paradise, which is probably only a tropically matured rum (here considerable 25 of a total of more than 28 and not only 26 years, label is outdated according to the bottler).On the palate I perceived at first mainly wood - but then came the alcohol with force! But that is neither surprising nor unpleasant at 68%, the alcohol content extends the finish to infinity. So this is a true finish rum - and at NY I'm into it. This also nicely conceals the fact that the rum lacks fruitiness and depth somewhat for my sensibilities. But let's be honest: Do you really want to expect elegant finesse from a stunner rum? Even if this brand new rum can't play in the top league of the '94 NYs because of the minor flaws, it certainly met my expectations.Whether its brother is on par with 68.5% remains to be seen. (Both rums are surprisingly still available.) Cheers!

In my blind tasting of 5 different NY '94s, this one was in 1st place. A detailed report follows in the individual tasting.

Nose: red fruits in glue. Taste: liquid children's eucalyptus. Again the red fruits. Finish of medium length. The alcohol is unfortunately not well integrated, it can not deny its 68%.
