“RumX Rarities day 8. A classic Demerara nose with varnished wood, leather, smoke, encaustic and tropical fruit in the background. The palate has a gentle attack, then develops lots of aromas. Prunes appear and incense transforms the English club into a medieval church. Smokiness is more pronounced than on the nose. Slightly unpleasant spiciness on the mid-palate. The finish is long on wood/plum/smoke/incense. A very fine rum, the kind that tells a story. I like it very much. The empty glass sees the tropical fruit reappear. The spiciness of the mid-palate takes a few points off.”

“Very nice nose, lots of glue, tropical fruit and oak. With time in the glass comes a very nice caramel tone and nuts. The alcohol is well integrated.In the mouth great. Nooks and crannies but still very, very good. Insanely oily. Long finish. Extremely awesome caramel!Thanks to Düdo for the sample!!!”

“Awesome, cool that we were allowed to taste this rum in the Rum X Rarities Tasting. And what a difference to the equally long aged, continental Port Mourant of the same vintage. The typical markers (salt, anise) almost sink into the perfect toasty caramel sweet tropical wood ripeness here with nice stickiness, nuts, cocoa and fruit. Would not have recognized blind as PM ... My favorite PM so far ❤️”
