This is a true masterpiece of a rum. Almost impossible to find but lucky for me one of my suppliers had one tucked away. Tried it and virtually fell in love on the nose alone. A perfectly balanced rum with a nose delivering on the taste. If you find a bottle it will set you back pretty badly 😊

In der Nase einen Tick besser als der 1978. Zu viel Holz am Gaumen.

Sehr edles Profil, wenn auch extrem bitter. Kakao, Kaffee, Leder, Fass - vielschichtige dunkle Noten gepaart mit etwas Trockenfrüchten und dezenter Süsse. Ein Rum, für den man sich Zeit nehmen muss, der diese aber auch wert ist.

Im Vergleich zum Skeldon 78 kann der 73 absolut mithalten. Die Nase ist fast noch besser als der 78, am Gaumen eine gewisse Bitterkeit, die aber keinesfalls störend ist. Flüssige Geschichte!
