“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.”

“RumX Advendskalender 21.12.21: Verwirrung auf mehreren Ebenen😂 Ich wurde das Gefühl nicht los den Rum zu kennen, habe die App durchgeforstet, aber nichts gefunden. Nach der Auflösung war es mir klar. Den Rum hatte ich bereits, aber nicht in der App notiert🤦🏼‍♂️ Deshalb…nicht erkannt. Verwirrung auch beim Tasting (war mein erster Rockley bislang). Die Nase fand ich nicht sehr schön. Sehr gemüselastig (kenne ich von Savannas). Im Mund dann schön, komplex und ein sehr eigenes Aromaprofil. Im Mund war ich dann bei Worthy Park. Edit: Insgesamt ein spannender Tropfen mit einigem zu entdecken. Schmeckt mir je länger je besser.”

“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.”
