This is my reference at 83 points. I know it’s a strange number to have as a reference, but still its a great rum and it keeps the rest of the rums in check and have plenty to spare in the 80s and 90s above it. I use it to kind of reset my values for my other rums, but still my daily form fluctuate. - Had to go back to my reference and it’s a good practice… - Now with the new HLCF being so different I think I need to stock up with this good oldie - Yup, got me a couple more Bottles just to keep.

pur ist er mir tatsächlich etwas zu röstig und Mokka/Kaffee lastig mit metallischen Noten. die Banane und Ester etc sind da aber eher im Hintergrund... dafür aber insgesamt fast schon unglaubwürdig gut trinkbar für 60% und schön ausbalanciert! im Mai Tai wiederum wird genau das umgedreht Banane/Karamell und leichte Mokka Assoziationen sehr rund und süffig mit genügend Komplexität um sich etwas Zeit für den Drink zu lassen. gute PLV und definitiv besser als der 46%ige! (wen wunderts auch?😜)

A really strong Jamaican style rum with a real punch. I'd say most May need a few drops of water to make it a lot more digestible. Rest for 15-20 minutes for all flavours to be released. Has more bang for your buck than the 92 proof version.

The finish is long, elegant and subtle. It’s fantastic that it’s possible to buy a rum like this, matching the Veliers, to this quite low price.

Endlich komme ich mal zu dem hier. Flasche ist schon fast leer. Der ist nämlich richtig gut und hatte ein unschlagbares PLV. Nase: intensiv und vollmundig. Fruchtig-karamellig. Hat viel von Papaya und mehliger Banane mit etwas schwarzer Johannisbeere. Dazu kommt herbes Karamell mit Vanille und hinten etwas kaltem Pfeifentabak. Wirkt fast etwas blumig-parfümiert. Gaumen: kräftig und echt lecker. Leicht bitter, mit einer leicht salzigen Umami-Note. Dann aber auch gleich fruchtig Richtung Orangenschale, Bananenschale und Papaya. Leichte Karamell und stark in Richtung Lakritz ziehend. Hat auch etwas von Kautabak. Im Abgang wieder Lakritz, grüner Tee und tropische Früchte. Eine gute Steigerung um 46%igem. Und der ist schon echt nett.

👃: Hyper funky, fruité, banane mûre, massepain (amande), alcool, légères épices et un peu de bois 👄 : Agrumes, bois sec, levures, alcoolique, fruité et épices style bois d'Inde. C'est funky et complexe ⏳ : Moyenne, fruit rouge et épices

Un très bon et puissant jamaïcain à un bon rapport qualité prix. Moins facile et moins funky que son petit frère réduit. Une toute petite pointe d'eau fait encore plus ressortir les côtés pâtissier et fruité.

Etwas floraler und weniger süß als der Great House 2020. Außerdem holziger, würziger und etwas weniger komplex. Im Direktvergleich hat der Great House klar die Nase vorn, aber ob es mir den Aufpreis wert ist… Im Vergleich zum Nachfolger, dem HLCF Classic deutlich holzig-würziger.

In der Nase wie sein kleiner Bruder. Geschmacklich mehr Bums, was am höheren Alcohol liegt. Sehr schöne röstaromen mit ordentlichen Funk und mit einer leicht unterstreichenden süße. Ist für mich eindeutig besser als sein kleiner Bruder. Ich liebe diesen Rum. Leckerer Jamaikaner. Den könnt ich jeden Tag trinken. Insgesamt erstmal 7 Flaschen davon gesichert. Mal sehen ob es mehr werden. ;)

Il primo funk non si scorda mai.. Dalla bevuta appagante, un punto di partenza ideale per il mio approccio alla Jamaica

More emphasis on fruity and funky notes with the higher ABV. However, nose is much more „closed up“ and needs a very long time in the glas to open up compared to the lower ABV bottling. All in all both seem legit choices😅
