“This is quite a successful MG, light and pleasant to drink. The alcohol is very well integrated. The nose is dominated by tart fruits such as a compote of green apple and kumquat and some caramel. Slightly sour fruit on the palate here too. This time more green apple with currants. I also notice coffee and nutty wood. The finish is not too long and is more on the woody side. All in all, a success, but the price... a clear "no" for me.”

“Rum and chocolate tasting by Rum Club Switzerland. A first nose of almost pure varnish, but immediately the fruit takes over, tropical fruit and yellow fruit (acerola and pear), young wood. The palate is surprisingly smooth and balanced after the varnish nose. Fruit expresses itself freely, supported by light wood. The finish is moderately long but balanced and fruity, with esters expressing themselves with restraint on the finish. A fine rum, expressive and well-balanced, making it very drinkable.”

“Yellow fruit on the nose, citrus fruit, apple with good acidity, young wood or sawmill, as I know it from Privateer, vanilla, caramel. Roasty and spicy on the palate, nutmeg, slightly peppery on the finish. I like the longer matured MGs like the Rumclub Ed 23 better. In any case, many thanks to Steinhorst for sharing the bottle with history!”
