Er ist weniger komplex als die 86er Abfüllungen und hat nicht so eine ausgeprägte Honignote. Auch merkt man die geringere Lagerzeit, der Alkohol ist zwar extrem gut, aber eben ein wenig schlechter eingebunden als bei den beiden getesteten 86er Abfüllungen. Aber ein wunderschöner Rum.

A wonderful rum staying true to Barbados and its flavours. Woody with fruit and spices from nose to finish. Medium complex wit a little caramel. I do like the oily roasted/smoky touch on the palate. Price to quality is very good.

Nachklapp zum gestrigen Rum-Depot Tasting: den Rest vom Plantation eingeschenkt im Vergleich mit dem Cave Guildive WIRD 2000. Beide mit einem rauchig-torfigen Grundton, dazu die Rockley-Honig-Note. Beim Plantation habe ich aber noch fruchtige Noten Richtung Nektarine oder Mango und Vanille. Der CG wirkt dagegen etwas eindimensionaler und auch etwas bissig. Der höhere ABV (56%) des CG wirkt nicht zum Vorteil. Am Gaumen dann umgekehrte Vorzeichen. Der Plantation wirkt mit seinen 47,8% leider etwas dünn (so wie auch schon der RA WIRD 2000). Wegen der Klasse Nase bleibt der Plantation aber mein Sieger.

RumX-Adventskalender, 21.12., blind. Erster Eindruck: frisch im Glas Fiji, nach etwas Zeit aber eher Guyana, hätte auf einen PM mit 12 Jahren und ca. 60% getippt. Nase: intensiv und komplex mit einer feinen holzigen Würze. Ich finde eine leichte Dose Pfeffer, Muskat und Nelke. Darüber liegt ein Hauch geriebene Zitronenschale und etwas Essig. Das ist noch etwas medizinisches in Richtung Pflaster oder Mullbinde. Durchaus interessant und nicht üblich. Gaumen: trocken und holzig, salzig und leicht bitter. Kräftig würzig mit Muskat und einer leichten Umami-Note. Und etwas wie frisch geschnittenes, grüner Ast. Dennoch wirkt er irgendwie verdünnt und nicht so tief. Ich finde noch leicht Limette und etwas Karamell. Am Ende ist es ein 2000er Rockley. Nicht der beste, aber der Stil gefällt!

Ein Wechselspiel der Aromen…die Nase mit Ester, Harz und Klebstoff, der Gaumen schön cremig mit Fass und Tannine, ein Hauch von Kräutern gesellt sich dazu, im Abgang dann Fass, Kardamon und Bittergewürz, aber leider zu kurz! Der Alkohol ist perfekt eingebunden

Very nice nose with honey, fruits and vanilla (rise) pudding accompanied by some herbs and spices. Has the upper hand compared to the RA 2000 Rockley, given a little higher intensity based on higher ABV.

sehr ungewöhnlicher Barbados Rum! Kamille-Kräuter Tee, mit schwarzem rauchigem Kardamom, tendenzen zu Whisky, etwas Honig & Bienenwabe und dunkle, röstig nussige Noten. im Abgang dann bitter und adstringent werdend. dennoch spannend und klarer Rockley Stil erkennbar wenn auch nicht 100% mein Ding.

Nose: the first sniff is hitting me with brine, olives and a touch of saltiness, in a pleasant combination. It slowly evolves into a slightly funky, more herbaceous profile. Palate: I still sense some of the brine and olive, but really in the background, along with those herbal funkiness. Doesn’t feel like a particularly high proof, maybe 52-ish, o maybe just well integrated Finish: medium finish, again with that herbal note and possibly some citrus zeist in there.

21. Tag im RX Kalender. Mein Tip war ein Savanna. Geruch: Honig, Karamell, Gewürze, Zimt, Piment, Kardamom. Aber auch eine gewisse Rauchnote. Im Geschmack auch viel Honig, Gewürze und Fassnoten. Gefällt mir gut. Ein Rum passend zur Jahreszeit (Winter).

Tag 21 RumX Adventskalender: Mein Tipp ging wegen den medizinischen und leicht metallischen Honignoten erst mal nach Fiji, aber da sind ja die Kräuter und der Tee. Doch Guyana? Alkoholisch bleibt er. Kein Plan... Auf Barbados und WIRD wäre ich mal wieder nicht gekommen.
