“When you are already an old man and are allowed to taste a rum that is even older ... Just opening the tarnished screw cap (!) was an adventure (and a feat of strength). A lovely grape scent hits you after opening, and this impression continues on the palate, albeit not quite as strong due to the ABV of only 45%, which was common at the time. But the alcohol is very well integrated and allows the rum to develop its full fruity aroma even after more than 60 years. This rum is like an essence. A dream from another world.”

“I am grateful for this sample of a 70s rum. Licorice and some cocoa on the nose, typical of the old Demeraras. In the mouth it has a nice balance and a lot of depth despite only 45%. I don't have anything to compare it to, but we are at a high level here. The flavors linger longer in the mouth. There is also no unpleasant wateriness as with other rums at a drinking strength of 45%. Great old Demerara”

“31.01.2020 Relaxing at a small tasting at a local dining place that is no more. Notes. Very dark in colour. Nose: Light yet complex, wood, caramel, dried fruit, orange, faint coffee. Palate: Complex, wood, roasted/light smoke, anise, dried fruit, light leather. Finish: Medium long, round, orange, wood, roasted, licorice.”
