“Nose is an explosion of flavors. Funky with esters, fruits and ample notes of solvents and marzipan. Also quite some wood once you are past the chemical notes. Compared to the 2010 release, this is much more mature, dark and closed up at the beginning. While you get full ester goodness, this is more balanced compared to the 2010 and less agreesiv (comparatively that is, of course!) Very nice on the palate as well. This is - in the most possible way - soft, balanced and elegant. Yet don’t take this wrong. There is still plenty of funk. Complex fruits (tropical as well as dried - I get some cherry here) mingling with wood and esters. This is very rich and the long tropical aging delivers brilliantly, presenting a dark and heavy rum without being overly wood forward or bitter in the slightest. Excellent! On the palate the 2010 is more playful and the ester notes are much more punchy. Much more adstringent and „in your face“. Both brilliant but rather different sipping experiences old and dark versus funk forwards. Both great. Compared to the younger 2005 NRJ bottling, both clearly share the same DNA. The additional years of tropical aging clearly transformed the profile towards darker and woody notes. Esters are much more tamed with dried fruits being more present in the mix.”

“A rum tasted at the WLP. A nose of marzipan and glue with dried fruit. On the palate, there's glue, vegetal and quite a lot of bitterness and tropical fruit. The finish is long on wood and dried fruit. A fine rum, but a little disappointing in direct comparison with WLP's HLCF, which I personally liked a lot.”

“Edit: tried it again today in MaiTai with the TWJ LP STC♡E. The mega hit Wow, what a great rum. Very tasty. I only tasted it briefly between sampling. Tasted it once shortly after pouring and then forgot to finish it. After more than an hour in the glass, I think it has improved a lot. But a comparison with the other Cambridge is still pending.”
