Tasted it together with my last glass from a 2004 and I think it’s slightly better than that one cause it’s not as sweet as the 2004 but on the other hand it’s also feels thinner. The fragrance is quite complex with clear barrel character, hints of muscovado sugar, raisins, arrack, marzipan, dark chocolate, orange and vanilla. In mouth and palate it’s also complex with some sweetness and clear barrel character, hints of raisins, muscovado sugar, orange, chocolate, arrack, nuts, cinnamon, Sherry and vanilla fudge. The finish is medium long and tastes more or less the same.

The latest release of the single vintage. A bit more alcohol burn than the previous versions and also a bit sweeter. The sherry really kind of dominates this rum and I think whisky lovers would like it as well. Well balanced, oaky and sweet and it may make you want to go for seconds. My favourite is still the 1997 release.

Nose is very soft and subtle and does not prepare you for the taste on the pallet. A lot going on in this rum. Almost over balanced, as all the flavious work so well together it becomes challenging to separate. A very good sipping rum to get to know over many sessions.

Very nice, smooth with a subtle fruity nose, slightly cluttered but enjoyable taste, with a smooth finish that ends a bit too soon. A very good sipping rum. Good value.

Franchement pas mal pour un diplomatico. Pas trop sucré très pâtissier.
