Luckily this was the last rum of the evening or all the other samples would have failed horribly in comparison. A great rum and again one that was hidden in the back of a top shelf at a tiki bar., where they had a rum aficionado. The nose is complex and well balanced with fruits, smoked Wood, vanilla and chocolate. The chocolate and vanilla really come out if you leave the empty glass for a while. The palate takes off where the nose finishes. Complex and well balanced with fruit, smoky wood, vanilla and a hint of coffee/mocha. The finish is incredibly long with wood, cherries, chocolate and vanilla. I know this is a rare bottle, but my oh my, what a great rum.

Sticht in der Blindverkostung aller Velier Diamonds mit seiner vergleichsweise sehr fruchtig-süssen Nase hervor. Am Gaumen kommen Bitternoten dazu und das typische Profil der Velier Diamonds wird erkennbar, allerdings bleiben auch hier die Fruchtnoten sehr präsent, die mich an überreife rote Beeren (Erdbeeren) erinnern. Exzellenter Tropfen und mittlerweile ein Privileg, ihn probieren zu können - grosses Kino.

Insanely balanced, complex and well integrated. Powerful yet elegant and completely different to all the other Diamonds from Velier!
