“This rum has everything that makes a good Diamond in the under 100 EUR segment. Chocolate, coffee, wood, malt, a little sweetness, a little bitterness. The finish is strong but relatively short, the alcohol is quite well integrated. I'm guessing that MDS is the marque and therefore have to compare the rum with the Diamond 2008 from Spirit of Rum (RX16020). The 1st release (!) from Rumbuddy is certainly a palatable PLV cracker. By the way: I don't like the Diamond SV 2008 from Nobilis (RX18069) tasted at the same time quite as much, it's more on the herbal side.”

“Die erste Abfüllung vom Rumbuddy. Die Specs sind vergleichbar mit dem RumClub No. 36 (muss ich neu nächste Gelegenheit mal vergleichen). PLV geht auf jeden Fall in Ordnung. Edit: gefällt mir doch besser als der RC No. 36, denn er ist am Gaumen weniger sauer, weniger bissig und daher runder. Nase: schön würzig-holzig und dunkel-malzig-röstig. Zu Beginn intensive, süße, weiche, leicht salzige Lakritze. Dunkle Schokolade umgibt getrocknete Blutorange und Dörrpflaume. Ein Spritzer frischer Zitrone ist auch dabei. Sehr leckere, klassische Diamond Nase. 8,4 Gaumen: sehr vollmundig, kräftig und doch weich. Am Anfang salzige Schokolade mit süßer Tonkabohne, dahinter eine leichte Menthol-Note bevor etwas Tabak, malzige Lakritze und krass starker Melassesirup den Mundraum erfüllen. Ja, die Melasse ist am Ende bestimmend - sauer-lakritzig, bitter-salzig. Guter, nicht so kompliziert Diamond-Vertreter. 8,4”
