“It is less complex than the 86 bottlings and does not have such a pronounced honey note. Also you notice the shorter storage time, the alcohol is extremely good, but just a little worse integrated than in the two tested 86 bottlings. But a beautiful 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.”

“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.”
