Ich bin beeindruckt! Den Rum hatte ich schon lange nicht mehr im Glas. Mittlerweile gefällt er mir noch besser. Wunderbar komplexer Blend. Aktuell empfinde ich mehr Diamond mit der typischen Klebstoff-Note, Melasse, Holz, dunkle trockene Früchte, weniger Versailles-Noten.

Ein Rum, der bei mir lange etwas unter dem Radar lief - was der Abfüllung aber nicht gerecht wird. Das Marque von Diamond ist dank der dominanten Lakritznoten recht gut erkennbar. In meinen Augen klar der beste Demerara-Blend von Velier.

I only have one comment on the nose for this one and that's WOW. Let it rest for at least 15 minutes and the nose is a crazy explosion of flavours not there when you poor the glass. I worried that the palate wouldn't be able to keep up with such a rich nose, but that wasn't the case. The palate is wonderful and very well balanced. The alcohol has been so well integrated that you don't need water, some may want a drop or two, but a wonderful palate overall. The finish is long and has a minty coffee note to it and it just keeps on lingering. Try to leave the glass for the next day nose it!

Sehr krass gereifter, tiefer und schwerer Demerara Blend. Der Rum ist eher auf der würzigen, fassigen und insgesamt herben Seite. Frucht gibt es in der Nase kaum, im Hintergrund etwas Dörrpflaume. Auch Süße ist geradezu abwesend, wenn überhaupt im Form von stark gebranntem braunen Zucker. Ansonsten ist da sehr viel frisch gerösteter Kaffee, Lakritze, Röstaromen, Leder, Tabak und Kräuter. Im Hintergrund noch etwas Möbelpolitur. Im Mund schwer, vollmundig, ölig, süß. Viel runder als noch in der Nase, etwas mehr Frucht, viel Melasse, ausgewogene Würze. Sehr geiler Rum, gefällt mir überaus gut
