Absolute Königsklasse aus Barbados - der „Rockley“-Stil erreicht hier seine höchste Form der Kunst. Rauch, Honig, frische Früchte, dazu grüne Noten - all das bei perfekt integriertem Alkohol und ohne jemals irgendeine Form von Schwere zu entwickeln. In einem Form: Formidabel.

Im Vergleich zum RA, Plantation und Nobilis ist der SS für mich auf Platz 3. Der Silver Seal braucht sehr viel Zeit im Glas um sich zu entwickeln. Alkohol ist vielleicht nicht absolut top eingebunden, aber er kommt dadurch sehr kraftvoll daher. Ein ausgezeichneter Vertreter des 86er Jahrgangs!

Nuri-Ölsardinen mit Honig. Ein einzigartiges Geschmacksprofil. Extrem komplex, extrem interessant. Im Mund der Wahnsinn. Es gibt keinen Rum der ähnlich schmeckt.

One of my favourite bottles on my shelf. Though expensive it's well worth the money and I can only recommend one. The nose is there from opening the bottle and once rested it just keeps on giving. Fruits and spice with an earthy tone and some rubber. Add some smoked oak and you have a monster. The palate is intense and complex with an oily texture. Again there is fruit and spice with tea, leather and rubber in the back. Again nice and smoky oak in there. The finish is very, very long with oak and peaches in the front and tannins and licorice in the back.

Woooow! Intensiv ohne Ende - in der Nase und am Gaumen! Einizigartig und hat einfach nichts mit heutigem Rum aus Barbados zu gemeinsam. Im Vergleich zum RA und DT kommt er mit mehr Ecken und Kanten daher wohingegen die anderen beiden deutlich runder sind.

Teil 6/8 unseres 1986er Rockley Tastings: Silver seal omg geil! 🤤 Limette/Pfirsich-maracuja/Minze/Schwarztee in flüssig, dazu etwas medizinische, dreckige Noten und unglaublich intensiv und ausgewogen! mega geile Nummer und einer der besten Rums die ich je hatte und wohl haben werde!🤤❤️🇧🇧🍯🥭🍑 für mich auf Augenhöhe mit dem RA allerdings deutlich fruchtiger und samtiger. absolute Granate!💥💣👌
