“Tasting at J. B. Labat. A full nose of nutty butter, molasses, young leather, prunes and spices. Heavy, dark aromas on the palate with molasses, brown sugar and bitter caramel. The aromas tend to evolve on the palate, which is very interesting, as the bitterness and spice strengthen and disappear in turn. The finish is long but too one-dimensional, with bitter coffee and heavy but not overpowering oak. A very fine release from the Guildive cellar.”

“Sehr interessanter Rum. Wenn man weiss dass es sich um einen Versailles handelt macht er geschmacklich mehr Sinn. Blind wäre schwierig. Für mich geht er in die Richtung des REV Profils. Gesamtbild des Rum stimmt total, es gibt einiges zu entdecken. Mir macht der Spass zu trinken.”

“Viel Melassesüsse, Karamell, etwas Fruchtaromatik, die dem VSG-Marque zuzuschreiben sein dürfte. Entweder im Fass oder im Nachgang vermutlich nochmal etwas mit zusätzlicher Süsse in Kontakt gekommen, was dem süffigen Profil zu Gute kommt. Angenehm trinkbar ohne besonders zu fordern.”
