“First impression: chemicals and solvents, a bit rough around the edges. Improves as it sits in the glass. Alcohol integration not that bad, but delivers quite a punch. Edit: compared to RX328 & RX16253 Most remarkable nose with some smokiness (is that bacon?). Esters are far more present on the palate and a little burn. Very nice. Bottlekill 15/04/24 The oxidation made it a bit more mellow. Very lovely fruity esters. Alcohol still present, but much less compared to the first tasting. Bumped it up with 0,3 points, because I find it excellent at this moment.”

“An explosive yet balanced nose. Buttery, fermented fruit, burnt caramel and a slight acetic bite. Not much funk, except on the very first nose, which is quite explosive. Aesthetics are very volatile here, and this rum mellows out considerably if you wait before drinking your glass. The palate is complex but not quite clean. In addition to the acetic bite felt on the nose, the fermented sides detract a little from the attractiveness of this rum, which is nonetheless very interesting and pleasant. The finish is long and balanced.”

“Intense and fibrant on the nose. Rather young and rough until it sits for quite some time in the glas. Does not hide its ester content at all , but develops a nice rich HGML fruitiness over time. I also get a rich sensation of BBQ/Chipotle spices on the nose, which is surprising but gives an interesting twist in my mind. Very nice and fruity on the palate. Some roasted notes and quite a bit sweetness. Very good. Not quite on par with the HV 2010 HGML, but not too far off. Also ahead of the 2010 12y single cask imo.”
