Summary

Encrypted II is a Japanese rum produced in 2017 at the Nine Leaves distillery. It has an ABV of 58% and is aged for 2 years. It has a nose of pastries, smoky and vanilla notes, and palate of whisky, sherry and smoky flavors with a long finish of toasted oak and black pepper. Most reviews are positive but some find it too whisky-heavy or not to their taste. It was sampled from a RumX Advent Calendar with strong whisky flavor and some Sherry notes, but not everyone liked it.

Bedenkt man wie jung dieser Rum noch ist müsste man bei diesem komplexen tiefen Profil eigentlich annehmen ein Zauberer hat ihn aus geheimen Zutaten hergestellt.

Die Nase gefällt mir deutlich besser als der Geschmack. Erinnert mich ein wenig an den Casamigos Reposado mit seiner starken Vanille und Karamell Note und der mineralität im Geschmack. Rum wäre in blind Test nicht meine erste Assoziation gewesen.

gerade nochmal die Tasting Notes des Encrypted III und IV nachgeschaut. Der II ist näher beim IV. An der Nase Hefegebäck mit Puderzucker oben drauf, Weißwein, kandierte gelbe Früchte, auch etwas erdig-nussig. Am Gaumen ebenfalls Weißwein, Marillenschnaps, Pekanuss. Im Abgang Eichenfass.

Rum X Advent 7.12.22: Ich hätte auf Plantation Long Pond mit irgendeinem rauchigem/traubigem finish geschätzt. Hat Züge eines Gewürztraminers. Special Tasting Note des heutige Rum: Assoziationen zu einer Petroleum Docht-Kerze. Er schmeckt, auch fürs Alter überraschend vielschichtig. Aber so ganz mein Profil ist es nicht.

#7th dec RumXCalendar Blind tasting: Nose: sherry, brandy, pastries, smoky, vanilla, peaches, earthy Palate: whisky, sherry, smoky, vanilla Finish: long, toasted, oak, black pepper Is this a Whisky 😝😝Definitely not one of my favorite. The alcohol is integrated very well My Prediction: Something with a Whisky finish for sure Approx. 50% Approx. 1 years of aging

RumX-Kalender 7: Ein sehr intensive sherry-wein-whisky-Nase mit einem leichten buttrigen Hefe-Touch! Je länger er im Glas verweilt überwiegen die Hefe-Aromen Am Gaumen verteilt er sich cremig im Mundraum. Auch hier dieses zuvor erwähnte intensive Aroma. Der Abgang ist relativ lang und weinlastig! Alles in allem ein besonderer Rum, der anderen Art! Passt so in keine Kategorie

Un rhum japonais particulier, dont on ressent au nez l’influence des finish et du whisky. On retrouge des notes épicées, fumées et des notes de fruits secs et de noisettes, avec une influence presque pâtissière. L’attaque en bouche est vive, marquée par les alcools et à la limite du piquant. On retrouve le bois, les épices, les notes fumées et un soupçon salin et terreux. La finale est plus agréable, on retourne sur la noisette, les épices et une touche de fraîcheur qui fait passer les effluves de whisky et de saké. Au final c’est un rhum déroutant, à la croisée des chemins dans les spiritueux et qui nécessite plus d’intégration et de maturité pour être un rhum à part entière. Nul doute que l’Asie a un potentiel extraordinaire pour les années à venir dans le monde du rhum.

Verkostet im RumX Adventskalender. Ich war wirklich am zweifeln ob das Rum ist oder doch ein (Scotch) Whisky. Ja, da ist etwas Sherry (aber eher von der abgestandenen Sorte) und für mich ein alles erdrückender Whisky-Geschmack. Und diesen mag ich einfach überhaupt nicht. Die Tatsache dass andere das mögen und ich nicht ist in meine Bewertung bereits eingeflossen. Ich habe mein Sample nicht austrinken können / wollen aber bin mir sicher, dass der Rum andere Geschmäcker trifft. Nur meinen eben gar nicht.

Guter Agricole aber mit dieser Kategorie tue ich mich nach wie vor schwer. Hier ist mir der Alkohol auch zu vordergründig.

Another “first time” tasting for me..this time we move to the Far East..this iteration of the encrypted clearly states how rums can be different from one Country to another..the first thing I get when sniffing it is kinda confusing..I thought I was sipping a Milk Clarified New York Sour with its wine float on top..you get a ton of tannin, maybe a milky sweetness , then fresh fruit (I sense peach and apricot, maybe a hint of ananas) and a not-so-clear nutty flavor (almond or maybe hazelnut). Very consistent on the mouth. For its original price, it’s really a piece to have!
