“The nose is dominated by solvents, polish, then tropical fruit, citrus, tobacco. The 25 years of tropical maturity is hardly noticeable. Very nice.In the mouth then much more wood. Long, complex finish , now more caramel and dried fruit.Very complex, easy drinking.Appleton I would not have recognized here, I can not help myself, the rum reminds me strongly of a 45% Caroni minus rubber and tar.😉Not for full proof gladiators, but that was not the intention here. It should be a great sipper, he is then also.Certain recognition value with the 95 Hearts.”

“Big name, big price, medium taste. Not bad, but price and fame probably come mainly from the marketing or the limitation. Quite complex and long in the mouth, despite the low alcohol, but then again also thin. Above all, very restrained in the nose. Overall, very spicy with dried fruits, which definitely show the age of this blend. For me, despite everything, no highlight, but good, complex and of course also tasty. Can you already also drink ;-)”
