Needs some time in the glass but then shows multilayered flavors that come together, I think, very elegant. He has quite a lot of force to which you have to get used briefly. Unusually, I find the quite present saltiness. A few drops of water I also find not wrong.

Second, slightly younger El Dorado Rare PM for today.Nose: with a little time, the high ABV is well tamed. Now I have a full-bodied, intense but at the same time balanced PM in the glass. Powerfully spicy-woody and aromatically fruity-roasty. Vanilla and nutmeg stand alongside orange peel and dried currant. Seems charred, almost burnt, but that doesn't bother at all. There is also strong sweetness from maple sap and burnt sugar. 88Palate: again strong and intense, salty-bitter and dry at first, then warm and creamy, with licorice, vanilla and nutmeg. Plus fat pecans with a slight umami impact. Seems strongly toasted. The so typical orange peel comes in at the back. The bitter start is a bit too heavy, but then a very nice, mature PM. 88

Don’t know why, but didn’t like it when I tasted it. Really don’t now why, but maybe because I was at rum cruise in the Baltic Sea with lots of tasings.

Basically an exciting flavor profile of bitter wood, strong black tea, tobacco, licorice, papaya and some leather. Unfortunately, but me personally on the one hand much too bitter and sourish and the alcohol could be much better integrated...

Leave this one in the glass for a while, then warm up your taste buds with a sip and wait for a short while before diving in. A true masterpiece they made here. It does have a little bite that warms, but it does so in a good way.

Muss etwas Atmen. Natürlich sehr kräftig, sehr würzig, etwas getrocknete Früchte. Komplex, Alkoholintegration sehr gut. Ein paar Tropfen Wasser bringen Bleistift zum Vorschein. Port Mourant ist typisch ausgeprägt erkennbar. Im Mund dann mehr Karamell, natürlich viel Eiche und massiv Gewürze. Toller, langer Abgang. Insgesamt sehr gelungene Holzreife! Ich bin jetzt nicht so der Port Mourant-Fan, dieser hat mir aber sehr gut gefallen. Ein kräftiges, herbes, sehr maskulines Aroma.

perhaps not quite on the level of the 97 PM from the ED Rare Collection, but still a very good PM. To soften the alcoholic sharpness (esp. on the palate) I found a few drops of water quite helpful. This PM, like many from the ED Rare Collection, is still available at absolutely fair prices.

I keep coming back to this rum, nose is very PM and is both intense and complex, most likely due to the long tropical ageing. It’s hard to distinguish the flavours as it’s quite concentrated but a bit of water opens it up. To be fair, it’s quite smooth when you compare to continentally aged to some PMs but it still has a packed flavour profile that many will not like (similar to caroni).

Nose: Heavy acetone. Taste: dominant alcohol first on the tongue. Percentages evaporate slowly, but it takes just 15-20 seconds for the nuances to emerge. The alcohol is very overpowering. I miss balance. A touch of water actually opened it up a bit.

The nose is carried on earthy-herbaceous notes. And we find licorice and anise. But not only that, we also find raisins, wood and leather. The nose is clearly below the 1997, but it is complex and interesting. In the mouth, it is intense, even a little too much. It is not perfectly balanced and a bit alcoholic. We find an astringency or even a bitterness a bit disturbing due to this predominance of wood. But fortunately some tropical fruits allow to soften it. The finish is warm and rather dry on the woody aniseed.

One of the most underrated rum. Fully tropical aged (only el dorado and velier are fully tropical) very intense rum, anise is not bitter and pungent as in continental aged PM, but very smooth and dense.
