Für eine Top-Bewertung ist er mir einen Tick zu floral. Aber spielt in der Champions League!

Komplexes Profil - tief, schwer, trocken, kräutrig, holzig und dennoch mit einer herben Süsse. Grossartig.

Un nez de club anglais avec du fumé, du bois patiné et du vieux cuir. Une bouche qui une fois passé la morsure de l’alcool, révèle une complexité inouïe ! La bouche est entièrement tapissée de saveurs. Une merveille ! Une finale infinie et un verre vide qui est si complexe qu’on peut penser à un parfum. Merci Thomas pour le sample. Ma plus belle expérience de rhum à ce jour.

Einer meiner Guyana-Lieblinge! Großartige Nase und auch am Gaumen ein wunderbar komplexer, vollmundiger, tropisch gereifter Rum!

Aaaaaaaaauuuuuuuugggggghhhhh!!!! In der Nase Karamell, getrocknete Früchte, Gewürze und die perfekte Ladung Eiche. Extrem vielschichtig, kräftig, komplex und trotzdem ausgewogen und süffig.🍹 Im Mund der Hammer! Fettes Karamell, getrocknete Marille, Lakritze, Pfeffer, etc. Karamellisiert im Abgang (was immer das heissen soll…) SVW at it‘s best. So schmeckt für mich der perfekte Rum. Aaaahhhhhh, ich komme nochmals, meine Frau wird eifersüchtig sein…

We had a wonderful pure Diamond tasting yesterday and what a tasting. Boom, this is how you make a good rum that has a finish lasting a few weeks. Adding a bit of water settled the alcohol heat and released the true nature and flavours.

Sehr intensiv, sehr aromatischen nach Karamell, kandierter Orangenschale und Kokos/Vanille etwas Ingwer-kumquat Konfitüre. Sehr geil!

Am Anfang ein Hauch Kokosnuss, dann betörende dunkle Kirsche, süße Holznoten, Bienenwabe, leichte frische Mandarinen. Tolle würzige Nase. Am Gaumen setzt sich diese schöne Mischung aus Würze und Holz zusammen mit süßlicher Kirsch-Mandarine fort. Ich meine sogar ein bisschen Litschi zu schmecken. Wundervoller Rum.

Too much wood, very good but a bit disappointed
