Fantastischer New Yarmouth. Sehr fruchtig und auch vegetal. Dazu würzig-kräuterig und im Geschmack auch keksig-süßlich. Macht richtig Spaß!

Hier sind mir persönlich etwas zu viel Gewürze dominant wie Muskatnuss und Ingwer, sowie vergorene Kiwi und geröstete Mandeln dazu. insgesamt sehr sehr lecker aber der 12er new Yarmouth hat ganz klar etwas die Nase vorn!

Sicherlich ein guter NY…aber: in der Nase fehlt mir die Fruchtigkeit. Ester und Klebstoff dominieren zu sehr! Am Gaumen anfangs Ester, eine angenehme Süße und dann der Wechsel zu den Gewürzen mit Vanille, Piment und Ingwer! Später in junges Holz übergehend! Der Alkohol recht gut eingebunden! Der Abgang ist relativ kurz und wird von den Gewürzen Piment und Lakritz dominiert! Für mich ist er im Verhältnis zu den anderen mir bekannten NY nicht so stimmig

blind hätte ich den eher bei den HD high esters eingeordnet. Neben dem Vergorenen (es fehlen jedoch die bei HD so geschätzten buttrig-cremigen Noten) und Lack kommen Zitrusfrüchte und Kiwi an der Nase. Im Vergleich zu den vielen grandiosen 94er NYs (zB RA und V&M) vermisse ich etwas die Backstube mit Keksteig, Rosinen, Karamell. Am Gaumen und im Abgang habe ich Zitrusfrüchte, und Salzlake.

Geiles Zeug. Sehr ähnlich dem RX4089, aber ein Jahr älter. Die Verdünnung hätte nicht sein müssen. Da war mehr drin und die dänischen Abfüllungen zeigen was möglich war.

Bien foutu ce p’tit jamaïcain. Peut-être un peu trop épicé à mon goût, mais il passe vraiment bien.
