Teil des Rum-Olymps. Sollte man einmal im Glas gehabt haben - bzw. so oft es geht. Eigenständig, einzigartig und eine Welt für sich.

Auf dem 11. GRF verkostet und sich danach noch 5 cl als Sample abfüllen zu lassen war ein MUSS. Wann hat man so etwas schon mal im Glas? Götternektar. 😋😋😋

This is another older tasting and I do have an even older one on my shelf equally good. The nose has spices and cherry with toffee, wood and herbal notes as well as light chocolate. The chocolate is more obvious in the empty glass after an hour or so. The palate is well balanced, sweet and fruity with spices, wood, toffee and a light nutty note. The finish is medium long and sweet with dried fruit and wood. The bottle is not cheap but we'll worth the money.

Mon Cheri in flüssig?! Wie kommt so eine krass intensive Kirschkonfitüre Marzipan Note zustande?? Unfassbar abgefahrenes Gerät!

Eines der Highlights auf dem 11. GRF - Klasse, dass man sowas dort überhaupt bekommt und wahnsinnig schade, dass auch diese Destillerie wohl für alle Zeiten verloren ist…

Auf dem 11. GRF probiert. Ich bin froh, dass ich die Möglichkeit hatte diesen Rum probieren zu dürfen. Ein göttlicher Rum.
