Top-Rum, der aber nicht ganz an das Niveau der anderen Velier Diamonds herankommt.

We had a wonderful pure Diamond tasting yesterday and what a tasting. This one was a little disappointing. It was completely out of balance and heavily dominated by molasses and the roasting of the barrel.

Hat Ähnlichkeiten zum Diamond 1996 SVW. Aber einen Tick ruppiger.

Hätte ich fast nach Barbados gesteckt … leckerer Easy sipper, mit leckerer Frucht, aber auch wenig komplex. Mehr Reife hätte vielleicht noch mehr Tiefe gebracht, und das Profil ist auch nicht vollkommen meins Insgesamt ein sehr guter Rum, der aber hinter den Erwartungen zurück bleibt. Für mich!

Tropisch gereift geht Diamond in eine etwas andere Richtung als das, was ich sonst von Demerara gewohnt bin. Hier dominieren zu Anfang eher Klebstoff und Politur in einem herrlichen Zusammenspiel mit Marzipan, Orangenschalen, Trockenfrüchte, Nelken, Gewürzen. Leider schwingt dieser hier, wie auch schon der 98er CBH, in eher kräutrige Lakritz Noten um, die nach diversem Austausch wohl nur mir aufzufallen scheint. Man kann es definieren wie man möchte, jedenfalls stört mich das leider etwas. Insgesamt betrachtet, ist das hier jedoch ein sehr guter Rum

Une belle sélection. Dans la gourmandise un peu sombre. Les fruits sont là mais assez en retrait tout de même. En comparaison directe avec le Enmore 1996 de DDL il est un poil en dessous.

Etwas eleganter als der 1996er, nicht so brachial, dezent fruchtiger, Alkohol ist optimal eingebunden

for a diamond metal column still, very superior and impressive; but…for the price…, It's totally not worth buying. It's a role model and milestone, but give DDL him some time, it could present more “high qualitys”, something better, more popular and more cheap. just wait
