“In the nose still relatively sweet, on the palate then dominated by spices and metallic notes. Good, but not completely convincing and not fully balanced in taste in my opinion.”

“To me, the alcohol seems only suboptimally integrated. Update 24.06.2022:Today, the rum still seems to me a bit too brute on the palate, but for that I taste no annoying finish, certainly not sweet wine, but just, as it should be, graphite (pencil shavings).A rum with dry charm and character.Because I tasted the RX1378 in parallel, I held that on the palate stubbornly for this SBS (keyword "heavy sweetness") . 🥴🙈 One may convict me of the grandiose error! 🙏😉”

“A maturation in sweet wine barrels is always such a thing... can make a mediocre rum better, but for me it is mostly nix. Nose: spicy, woody, fruity and sweetish. It comes through right away, the Marsala finish. Behind the sweetness, which is already a tad too much for me, many flavors come through. Lovely cherry wood, lightly toasted, Marashino cherry, dried apricot, pipe tobacco with vanilla, strong maple syrup. Palate: much rounder than expected. Strong and spicy, woody and toasty without being unpleasantly bitter. Slightly salty with nutmeg. The finish mellows out the Diamond nicely. Overall I don't think it's bad, nose a bit too sweet, palate pleasantly round. ABV fits very well.”
