Nose The Bouquet is a Versace dress in liquid aggregate. Incredibly oplulent, vibrant and yet of undeniable elegance. Feels almost like a perfume called Eau de Demerara, coming straight from the jungle. The scent of the finest, freshly cut woods such as sandalwood and cedar alternates in continuous play with lovely blossoms of ylang-ylang, poppy blossom, lilac and myrrh. The whole weave is carried by sweet mangoes, sticky glue and a light coconut blossom note, which absolutely corresponds to the Diamond profile. Palate La grande bellezza! Sweet, super concentrated and oily, the first sip fills the palate with dried mangos, fried cassava slices, tamarind paste and milk chocolate with coconut filling. But there is also a note of Masala Chai in there, giving it an oriental twist. The sweetness is striking! At no point does the 61.4% abv seem dominant or sharp. The tropical maturation has done a perfect job here! It's clearly a Diamond Coffey Still Rum, yet it somehow tastes more refined and sophisticated than the other Velier Diamonds. ғɪɴɪsʜ Long like the red carpet of Cannes, flanked by the abovementioned fine woods and a whole bunch of citrus peels.

We had a wonderful pure Diamond tasting yesterday and what a tasting. This one was wonder ful from opening to finish. Lightly sweet on the palate and lightly dry on the finish. Really good rum. A a drop or two of water to release all the flavours!

Die Diamond-Range von Velier kommt mit einer in der Breite fast schon unglaublich hohen Qualität daher. Der 93er zählt innerhalb dieser erlesenen Runde sogar noch zu den positiven Ausreissern und bringt das klassische Diamond-Profil mit Holz, Milch, Vanille, Bitternoten und Gewürzen in Perfektion. Extrem gut.

Schöner Diamond. Für meinen Geschmack einen Tick zuviel Kräuter.
