How does this rum taste?

Plantation Guyana (Big Peat Islay Malt) deeply splits opinions: its dominant peaty, smoky Islay notes overshadow Guyana's signature. While whisky lovers may appreciate its bold profile, rum purists often find it overpowering and unrecognizable as rum.

“Nase: Torf, verbrannter Zucker. Gaumen: Kann ich nach dem ersten Schluck nicht trinken, weil dieses Etwas überhaupt nicht nach Rum schmeckt, sondern nur nach Islay Whisky. Kommt in den Abfluss. Wegen der halbwegs interessanten Nase noch 40 Punkte. Nachtrag: Ein passendes Beispiel, wie grob-dominant Whisky von Islay ist und wie man damit jeden Rum kaputtmachen kann. Fazit: Finger weg von solchen Experimenten! (Selbst mal ausprobiert: Islay-Whisky ist wie eine Würgeschlange und kriegt am Ende aromatisch sogar Hampden-DOK unter, wenn man beide mischt.)”

“Hmm, wenn ich Whiskygeschmack haben möchte, dann greife ich auch zu Whisky und nicht zu Rum, der im Whiskyfass lagerte. Streng genommen lagern fast alle Rums im Whiskyfass - im Bourbonfass. Dieser lagerte aber in einem Islay-Whisky Fass. Ist Geschmackssache, mein Fall ist es nicht. Jedoch gebe ich zu, für das was es ist, ist es nicht schlecht. Guter Kandidat für ein U-Boot in einem Whiskytasting 😁 Ergänzung: Leider auch wieder mit spürbaren Zuckerzusatz”

“Masterclass with Alexandre Gabriel on 04.04.2024. Plantation becomes Planteray. My absolute minus rum of this tasting. Even if it's well-intentioned to create something like this, it's just not my world at all. You either love it or you don't. Personally, I hate it. Sorry”
