I rated the precursor, the “Old Cask 1703”, quite low, probably because it was my first contact with English styled rum. Now I appreciate this rum a lot and I will probably upgrade my rating of the “Old Cask 1703” if I make a retest.

Vanille, Keksteig, Banane und wohltuende Frische durch Apfelnoten. Eine schöne, ausgewogene Nase, halt nicht besonders aufregend. Im Mund dann ein schönes prickelndes Gefühl, leider etwas verwässert. Nun schöne, komplexe Gewürznoten und wohldosierte Holzigkeit. Im Abgang etwas kurz. Ein edel verpackter Easy Sipper, schmeckt gut, handwerklich einwandfrei. Trotzen ein unaufregendes Produkt und zu teuer.

Ein fast perfekter Barbados Blend. Ein paar Prozente mehr hätten ihm sicher sehr gut gestanden. Aber auch so finde ich ihm, sofern man ihm etwas Zeit im Glas gibt, extrem lecker

Almost the perfect rum. Dominated by the cask in a positive way.

mega schade... die Nase ist extrem vielversprechend... mango, Holz, vanille, etwas Rose & Karamell... dagegen im Geschmack dann leider super verwässert, dünn und seltsam holzig bitter und trocken ... da hab ich mehr deutlich mehr erhofft :(

Můj oblíbený Barbados, ve vůni vanilka a ovoce, 43% je tak akorát, kdyby měl ještě víc, byl by ještě lepší…ale takhle je krásně zakulacený a uhlazený.

Solid, but very heavy on the oak. Also wish it was bottles closer to 50%
