An Nase und Gaumen viel Holzfass und Röstaromen. Die 66% ABV sind auch deutlich wahrnehmbar. Insgesamt ziemlich ruppig, was ihn wiederum aber auch interessant macht.

I had hoped this would be another top runner, but unfortunately the tannins and wood dominates far too much. The alcohol also burns and not in a good way. A few drops of water will help a little but not enough.

Quick note: even if it is from Barbados, it is leagues away from any Bajan rum I have ever tried..way more earthy and grassy, with this Basil note on the palate that is rather unique. I would like to thank this community in encouraging to open and split this little, interesting gem!

Überraschend Kräuterig, holzig und Intensiv! Würde ich blind nicht auf Barbados tippen! Alkohol könnte aber besser integriert sein und mir persönlich ist es zu viel Holz.

Spannend, aber nicht ganz mein Fall. Etwas zu wild und kräutrig.

J’ai un palais de merde ce soir que je n’apprécie rien ! Mais heureusement que le Warren Khong Mount Gilboa 2008 va changer la donne. Et oui, là il y a des watts, on a 66% provenant de Barbades. Le nez est alcooleux, oranges, notes torréfiée et de fruit à coques. En bouche c’est funky, l’alcool est là mais c’est top. On est toujours sur les fruits tropicaux et c’est sec avec du moisi comme les Port Morant que j’apprécie. La finale est rugueuse avec des notes de café. Je valide et suis content car j’ai justement une bouteille dans mon bar à ouvrir prochainement 💪
