Großer Name, großer Preis, mittelgroßer Geschmack. Nicht schlecht, aber Preis und Bekanntheit kommen wohl vor allem durch das Marketing bzw. die Limitation. Durchaus komplex und lange im Mund, trotz des geringen Alkohols, aber dann doch eben auch wieder dünn. Vor allem sehr zurückhaltend in der Nase. Insgesamt sehr würzig mit getrockneten Früchten, die das Alter dieses Blends durchaus erkennen lassen. Für mich trotz allem kein Highlight, aber gut, komplex und natürlich auch lecker. Kann man schon auch trinken ;-)

Relativ enttäuschend, hatte mehr erwartet. Eher belangloses Profil und mir ist die Alkoholintegration nicht sauber genug.

I just bought this one and I am not disappointed. This is a great rum and I decided to buy it after a tasting. If you like funky Jamaican then this is it.

In der Nase dominieren Lösungsmittel, Politur, dann tropische Früchte, Zitrus, Tabak. Die +25 Jahre tropischer Reife merkt man kaum. Sehr schön. Im Mund dann viel mehr Holz. Langer, komplexer Abgang , nun mehr Karamell und getrocknete Früchte. Sehr komplex, gut trinkbar. Appleton hätte ich hier nicht erkannt, ich kann mir nicht helfen, der Rum erinnert mich stark an einen 45% Caroni minus Gummi und Teer.😉 Nichts für Full-Proof-Gladiatoren, aber das war hier auch nicht die Intention. Es sollte ein toller Sipper sein, das ist er dann auch.

Much alike the 21-year old but much smoother even though it’s 90 proof. Buy it if you find it.

It’s a much hyped bottle and for me just misses the target. It’s not in absolute terms a bad rum but I struggle to get excited about it in any regard. The nose is pleasant and settles down well, butterscotch and some oak and vanilla. The mouth is where it struggles a bit more, the integration is not quite there and light spice with some pot elements but an altogether unmemorable mouth. The finish retains some spice and is a bit more exciting but doesn’t draw you back in. It’s a collectors bottle more than a drinkers bottle and I would much prefer a Appleton 15/21 or one of the hearts bottles

To expensive, nice, but to easily, no punch no power no after tasting.
