“Absolute royalty from Barbados - the "Rockley" style reaches its highest form of art here. Smoke, honey, fresh fruit, plus green notes - all this with perfectly integrated alcohol and without ever developing any form of heaviness. In one form: Formidable.”

“Compared to the RA, Plantation and Nobilis, the SS is for me in 3rd place.The Silver Seal needs a lot of time in the glass to develop. Alcohol is perhaps not absolutely top integrated, but it comes thereby very powerful. An excellent representative of the 86 vintage!”
