“Ich liebe es diesen Rum zu verkosten. Schon an der Nase deutet er an, was man von ihm erwarten kann. Ein bunter Fruchtkorb mit Minze verziert. Am Gaumen spielt er seine Stärke voll aus. Der macht keine Gefangenen und zeigt direkt was er drauf hat. Komplett mundfüllund, adstringierend, fruchtig. Die Minze ist nur ein Companion, wenn auch ein nicht ganz umbedeutender und das ist beides in diesem Fall genau richtig. Der Alkohol ist excellent integriert, der Abgang sehr lang. Zweite Verkostung: +2 Punkte”

“Very nice on the nose! This definitely gravitates towards the beloved profile of the 2000s bottlings. Mint, herbs, plenty of tropical fruits with some sweetness and vanilla notes. The very same is true for the notes on the palate. Brilliant cask selection from TWJ.”

“I have the TWJ and the Dram Mor TDL 2009 in my glass at the same time. The TWJ was sold out in minutes, the DM is still available in many stores. After a few minutes the nose is still so similar that I can't tell the difference, maybe the TWJ has a bit more vanilla and caramel, DM is a touch lighter. The DM is probably reduced to an even 58%, the TWJ has almost 5% more. But that's already the biggest difference (which is barely perceptible). In the mouth, the profile is so similar that I could never identify them. Again, the TWJ is a touch darker, the citrus is more orange peel than lemon peel, there's some sweet caramel to it, which makes it a bit rounder. The finish is slightly more intense, a little less sour, but again a little caramel, this time a little toasty. The TWJ is somewhat more pleasing overall due to the nuance of dark caramel, but not enough to put it one point ahead of Dram Mor. Super TDL and once again one of the best from the 2009 batch. Update: Three times TDL 2009, all three released within one year. I've had Dram Mor and TWJ together in the glass before and could hardly tell them apart. The three rums are also extremely similar in the rest of the tasting. The Dram Mor brings a little more acidity in the mouth, the FRC is the biggest fruit bomb with an intense mango note, the TWJ is very similar to the FRC, a little wilder in the mouth. In the end, the same score for all 3. A super batch, very tasty!”
