Eine nahezu perfekte Nase! Dass dieser Rum verdünnt wurde ist eine Katastrophe… Das wäre sonst vermutlich der perfekte Rum gewesen.

Ich durfte diesen Tropfen genießen. Hammer! vielschichtig und perfekt ausbalanciert, charaktervoll. Noten von Karamell und Sirup geben ausreichende zurückhaltende Süße. Ahornsirup und Harz schmeckt man im Abgang. Trockenfrüchte, Rosinen und Datteln machen sich anschließend bemerkbar. Der Rum duftet herrlich nach frischem Kaffee und Aprikose. Toll, dass ich solch eine Rarität probieren durfte. Hat mich ein Vermögen gekostet, aber hat sich gelohnt.
