RX17302 Very good Single Cask 351 bottles Under 250€
“Fruity, complex, and fresh. Truly exceptional with great mint notes.”

This exceptional rum, bottled by Swell de Spirits, stands out with its rich complexity and well-integrated flavors. Distilled by T.D.L in Trinidad from molasses and aged for 14 years, it delivers a tantalizing nose of minty, tropical fruits, with hints of rubber, bourbon, and vanilla. On the palate, expect an intriguing mix of minty, woody, and sour cherry notes, complemented by exotic fruits. Although some found the alcohol slightly sharp, most praised its balance and evolving profile. Ideal for those seeking a sophisticated rum experience, it balances traditional T.D.L characteristics with refreshing fruitiness. Limited to 351 bottles, this cask strength rum at 63.7% ABV is a standout selection that offers great value and a memorable tasting journey.

“Edit: enjoyed again in peace as a digestive rum after lunch at the Italian restaurant. I'm always a bit critical of Swell, but this one really won me over for once. Great bottling. Adjusted upwards a little. Unfortunately only sipped briefly when bottling. First impressions are better than the last Swell T.D.L Privat Garden #4, but a detailed tasting will follow.”

“Tolles TDL-Minz- und Mentholprofil, das offenkundig neben den Jahrgängen 2001-2003 auch in 2008 präsent ist. Spannend, noch eher frisch mit dezenten Holz- und Karamellnoten - da bieten frühere Jahrgänge noch mehr Power. Es bleibt aber eine freudiges Abwarten, was hier mit weiterer Lagerung noch passiert.”

“Balanced showing in the nose. Quite some wood with roasted notes intermingling with dried fruits (apricot) and some exotic fruits (lychee). Complex on the palate with even more fruitiness (cherry and berries) as well as a bit of herbal and minty notes. Nice bottling overall.”
