“A benchmark for TDL 2003, this rum takes us on an extraordinary olfactory journey. Menthol and flowers (rose in particular) intoxicate us with their freshness, while fruit (blackcurrant, blackberry, tropical fruit, lychee, peach) exhilarates the nostrils. There's a dirty tire and rubber quality reminiscent of Caroni. Wood and spice are also well balanced in the background. A complete, intense and delicious olfactory profile. The attack on the palate is one of the most intense floral displays, fresh and almost medicinal with notes of menthol and eucalyptus. Fruit is legion, with tropical fruit (lychee, mango, passion fruit), yellow fruit (peach), black fruit (blackcurrant, blackberry) and dried fruit. The rubber combines well with the spicy oak, which doesn't take on too much. The alcohol is superbly well integrated. An infinitely round, complex, elegant profile that makes you want to return to it instantly. The finish is close to infinite, floral, fresh, fruity as it should be on the same markers with a little dirty and rubbery touch, caramel and a light woodiness. All of which leaves an indelible impression on the palate. An absolutely magnificent bottling that allows The Whisky Jury to play in the big league, and TDL to assert itself as the revival of Trinidad.”

“Tasted at Liquid Leuven ‘23, so my review remains rather concise. On the nose we get fruity and fresh aromas combined with dark sugars and pine trees. It’s of course very cool and herbal, as befits TDL ‘03, but a peachy note elevates its raw power into a slightly more accessible experience. In the mouth an absolute flavour bomb combining all possible markers. Opens sweet, fresh and lightly dirty with molasses, eucalyptus, mint, citrus oils and a bit of diesel. Then waves of peaches and passionfruit. And eventually finishes exceptionally nutty. The backlash remains extremely long. It’s cool, dirty yet sweet and rich in oils and resin. It’s obviously very similar to the other TWJ ‘03, but it’s a little less herbal. Less ‘woodland’. Less harsh. Instead it’s more playful, sweeter and fruitier. Incredible quality.”

“Nose of summer fruit, peach, wood and menthol. Vanilla and sweetness. Engaging. The palate is initially intense. Alcohol is very present. Menthol very present, woody. Not the best TDL I've tasted, but interesting.”
