This rum is lightly dry and has a long finish. Fruity with spices and it has a herbal touch with honey to it. Very well balanced and complex. A lovely rum and a very good buy in my mind.

Herrlich frische grasige Noten treffen auf Früchte, Nougatsüsse und Gewürz. Dank der reduzierten Stärke fast schon als easy sipper zu bezeichnen, was dem Rum aber nicht ganz gerecht würde, denn das Destillat bleibt aromatisch lebendig und weiss vielfältige neue Nuancen aufzuzeigen. Ein sehr gelungener Rum.

Very elegant and pleasant rum, this one..the nose is very fruity, with peaches upfront, a touch of floral and herbal and some light spices to it..the wood is just a hint in the background. The palate il a little bit sweeter, with those peaches that become to me as syrup-y. As time goes by, the wood influence is more present, giving a spicier rum. I really would have taste this one in comparison with the 1995, but it took me almost 2 hours to prepare the samples xD..guess I’ll do it another time :D

fruchtig-würzige (Gewürznelke) Nase. Am Gaumen ebenfalls eher würzig, hinten raus zugleich pfeffrig und eine leichte Süße. Nicht super intensiv, aber schön rund.

Leckerer Tropfen, aber ein paar Prozent mehr würden ihm gut tun.
