Der geschmackliche Ausreisser unter den Velier-Diamonds - allerdings keineswegs im negativen Sinne. Wer bei Demerara auf Pflaume, Lakritz und Ledernoten steht wird hier fündig. Mir persönlich sagt das Profil sehr zu und katapultiert die Abfüllung folglich auch in den Spitzenbereich. Wer Diamond-Essenz sucht ist hier aber falsch.

Richtig geiles Teil! Die rostigen Specknoten erinnern an einen Damoiseau. Echte Überraschung!

So und nicht anders soll ein klassischer Demerara schmecken! Die Farbe ein Wahnsinn. Eine alte, frisch eingelassene Kommode, Eiche und Lakritz. Speck! Dunkel, schwer und ölig. Ich hätte ihn fast als After Shave genommen...🤭

Un dark demerara comme je les aime sur la réglisse le caramel la colle... pour seulement 15 ans le fût a vraiment bien marqué le rum! Le nez est une pure folie et le tout se glougloute tellement facilement. Le mythe des demerara velier n'est pas volé c'est un très grand rum!

We had a wonderful pure Diamond tasting yesterday and what a tasting. Another big boom. This one with a great oak finger pointing at you without being too dominant.

Unfassbar geiles Gerät! Getrocknete Feige, Dörrpflaume, uralter balsamico, dezent Minze und thymian, Akazienhonig, etwas dunkle Schokolade und etwas Rum Rosinen... Episch!

zum Start in den Feiertag wieder mal ein echtes Highlight: tolle Nase nach getrockneter Dattel (wie sie morgendlich ins Früchtemüsli kommt), Möbelpolitur, Tabak und auch irgendwie eine kräutrig-frische Note (Kerbel?). Der Gaumen knüpft nahtlos an: Rosinen, Leder, Süßholzwurzel (was ich als Lakritz vermerkt habe), Kakao und eine leichte Jod-Note. Im Abgang sehr würzig mit Leder, Kaffee, altem Fass. Ein toller Demerara! Vielen Dank nach Wien für das Sample!

REHABILITATION! Das erste Sample war nachweislich nicht mehr gut, dementsprechend war meine Wertung sehr miserabel. Ich hab ein neues aus einer frischen Flasche bekommen, danke nochmals dafür Jacob❤️ Jetzt sieht das alles ganz anders aus und der Rum gefällt mir tatsächlich sehr gut. In der Nase dem SVSG sehr ähnlich, wobei ich jetzt keinerlei Zweifel mehr habe, dass dieses Mark beim SVSG verblendet wurde. Sehr krass gereifter Rum, finde ich sehr schön. Im Mund überraschend harmonisch, die Bitterkeit hält sich in Grenzen. Klasse Ding!
