“Wow, on the nose it reminds me of a Guyana rum or even a Foursquare, with citrus fruits and other fruits such as peach being dominant here, especially if you give it enough time to breathe. Lots of roasted chocolate, caramel, wood and all kinds of fruit. Very pleasant in the mouth, despite 60°. Complex rum, at a more than fair price! Definitely a good tad better than the 2010.”

“Super NG frame! There's a lovely fruity side (Red / Yellow / Tropical / Dry) mixed with the empyreumatic notes that make the distillery so distinctive (Cardboard / Rum / Copper / Smoke / Oily / Rubber / Tar). This one is very (too?) woody, which brings us notes of sweet spices (Vanilla / Cinnamon / Licorice) as well as toasty notes, especially in the finish (Coffee / Dark Chocolate / Smoke) with nothing but baking. The sweetness is brought out by molasses (Burnt sugar / Burnt cream / Caramel). The NG frame is really top-notch, it's a change and it works pretty well! Nevertheless, I find this one too woody, and the column distillation certainly takes some of the body out of this rum. A pot wouldn't be out of place! It's still very good!”

“So, now it has happened: This is my new Mauritius Croesus, Emotion 1969 (RX2495) has been knocked off the throne. For a better comparison though tasted against the Savoir Faire from the successor year 2010 (RX13444), but that does not change my verdict. The 2009 is perceptibly more intense and complex on both the nose and palate than the 2010. I particularly like that lovely oily fruitiness on the palate. It's just a shame that I only had a sample of the rum. If I had a bottle of that, I would split it immediately.”
