Rum ricco di esteri, ma con un suo fascino.

Die Nase ist sehr intensiv, sehr funky und sehr jugendlich. Im Mund ist er dank der kurzen Zeit im Fass überraschend rund und mild. Die Aromen bleiben relativ konstant, im Abgang kommt eine leicht tanninige Bitterkeit dazu. Ein großartiger junger Rum, der mit seiner irren Präsenz überzeugt.

Zitrusfrüchte pur von Nase mit Abgang. Dazu kommt eine Honigsüße im Geschmack und gebrannter Zucker im Abgang. Der gute Geschmack und Abgang wird anfänglich durch sehr penetrante Klebstoffgerüche zu nichte gemacht, der jedoch schnell verfliegt.

Præcist hvad jeg er ude efter når jeg ønsker en funky high ester med udpræget duft, stor smag og lang eftersmag og det til en rimelig pris. Denne flaske vil hurtig blive tømt

Au nez, on est sur un Jamaïcain. ça donne très envie. c'est plein de solvants, de fruits trop mûrs. c'est fruité, sucré, gourmand. En bouche, c'est décevant. De la colle, des solvants, du fruit, de la banane pourrie. Cest sympa mais on reste sur sa fin. Le nez était très prometteur et le goût est en retrait. Malgré tout très au-dessus de la moyenne. 2nde dégustation : très marqué cette fois par le sucre. Wow, c'est très sucré. Et pas aussi décevant qu'à la première dégustation, bien au contraire. C'est gourmand bien que jeune et fougueux. Toujours du vernis, du solvant. C'est vraiment cool en fait. Regouté ce soir. Tjs aussi cool !

Keine Ahnung was mich bei der ersten Verkostung geritten hat, aber beim zweiten Mal gefällt der mir doch ganz gut! Sehr sehr lecker! Und mal was anderes, vor allem die Nase ist klasse. Nur im Geschmack ist er mir etwas zu bitter.

Diesen Rum hab ich mir als einen der ersten bei der Reise in die neue Welt gegönnt und hab ihn heute Mal wieder probiert. Tatsächlich schmeckt er mir immer noch und zwar sogar gefühlt besser. Die wilde Note mit viel Ester und Klebstoff ist noch da aber heute schmeckt er mir viel runder, was natürlich auch an der eigenen Geschmacksentwicklung liegen mag. Viel tropische Frucht, etwas Marzipan, Honig und und ein leicht salzig rauchiges Finish. So ein toller recht junger Fiji kann sich sehen lassen und findet hoffentlich bald einen würdigen Nachfolger.

Preis/Leistung absolut top. Hampden, Ester, Politur, Teer. Ein Traum. Im Abgang leider etwas laff.
