„This is a piece of history and of course I had to try it once possible and straight out of the belly of the beast. Lightly fruity wit roasted wood and some licorice. Complex and very well balanced rum. Great ABV integration.“

„This is rum history for a change. From the bottle of René's rarities. It's empty now!Nose: beautiful and complex. Old, dusty, charred attic floorboards, malty roasty with some tobacco, also some old furniture polish. But also dark fruit, plum and grape with a touch of apricot. A slightly resinous freshness and then immediately earthy root. Spicy with maggi and cocoa powder and some licorice.Palate: spicy-woody, malty and toasty with a slightly salty umami note. Tobacco again and something earthy and spicy. Clearly also the polish, herbs and nutmeg.N:89 G:84 historic:95“

„Probiert aus dem Original-Flakon, von René van Houven/René‘s Rarities auf dem 10. GRF in Berlin. Unglaublich geiles Erlebnis. Flüssige Geschichte, die hier probiert wurde, ganz schwer zu beschreiben. Wie alle Flakons weitestgehend einzigartig. Hier geschmacklich eindeutig mit großem Demerara-Anteil. Schmeckt schon ohne Hintergrund unglaublich gut, den würde ich sofort als Abfüllung kaufen. Vielleicht gibt die Bewertung die geschmacklichen Eindrücke nicht richtig wieder, aber allein die historische Komponente legt nochmal ein paar Punkte oben drauf. Bonus: Ich durfte das letzte Glas daraus austrinken. Voll mit Sediment (Brocken!) im Glas und selbst das hat sich nach Geschichte angefühlt. Unvergesslich!“
