What a lovely and intense rum. Velier really knows how to finish their rums. Very fresh and spicy with fruit, spices, caramel and tobacco and fruit. The caramel is very clear without being too dominant. I think I got a hint of smoky wood there as well.

im direkten Vergleich mit dem Basseterre 97. An der Nase ist der 95er deutlich intensiver, mehr Würze, Vanille und Karamell (fast schon in Richtung Spanier). Dazu im Hintergrund frische, florale Noten. Der 97er kommt deutlich mehr über die fruchtige Seite. Abgesehen von dem deutlich höheren ABV, der dem 95er auch am Gaumen mehr Volumen und Intensität verleiht, finde ich die Unterschiede hier jedoch nicht so ausgeprägt. Müsste ich mich zwischen beiden entscheiden, wäre aber der 95er mein klarer Favorit. Vielen Dank an Luca für die Samples!

Einfach nur lecker und komplex. Ich mag den Mix.

Nicht zu aufdringlich in der Nase. Frisch-würzig. Feine Zitrusfrucht mit Kirsche und leicht deckender Brombeere. Er kommt ein bisschen grün-kräuterig-grasig rüber. Ledrige Würze mit leichter Vanille. Im Geschmack würzig und leicht holzig. Grün, grasig, Tee und das recht ausgewogen. Eine fein-herbe Süße in Richtung Karamell. Insgesamt etwas gedeckt am Gaumen. Im Abgang Mittelgang, jetzt kommt auch das grasig-Süße Zuckerrohr durch. Nett aber nicht herausragend

Interessanter Rum! Anfangs dominiert die Melasse-Note, die sich dann wandelt in einen harmonischen Agricole-Abgang
