Dilution is very noticeable. However, there is still enough taste left to enjoy this one. Rather on the sweet side. Would guess from DDL‘s Savalle Still.

This is a really good demerara Rum especially considering the price tag. Even though the ABV has been reduced, there is still a lot of flavours. The nose is woody with leather, tobacco, chocolate, minty and herbal notes. Leave the empty glass for a few hours and then whif it again. The palate is warm and well balanced with wood, spices, tobacco and burnt cane. The finish is long and woody with spice and earthy notes.

Der 98er Samaroli ist in Geruch und Geschmack etwas kantig und wirkt nicht ganz stimmig. An der Nase viel Rauch, Tabak, Gewürze. Am Gaumen Noten von Holz und getrockneten Früchten sowie nach längerer Standzeit kommt auch etwas Kirsche und Traube durch.
