This bottle will be emptied tonight and I already had the first glass and barely one more left in the bottle. I can't find a better occasion for finishing this rum than the slide into 2022. This is also a bottle that was released in my birth year so I know I'm old :-) At least I can add some extra information compared to my old notes. This being a very old vintage rum it is so very different in the flavor profile compared to the releases in the past decades. There is wood from nose to finish. Then there is the typical grass note mixed with spice and fruit. There is also a hint of leather in the profile. I like the spicy tunge on the palate. A very good old rum that didn't come cheap when I bought it in the late 80's

Grandioses Profil, das leider etwas unter der Verdünnung leidet. Trotzdem lohnenswert!
