“This is a rum where the nose is significantly different from the palate. Not a bad rum. It has a bite and a short kind of sweet finish. I'd say the price tag is OK.”

“Tolle Nase, man riecht förmlich das Alter. Aber was ist das am Gaumen? Dünnes Rosenwasser? Nee, damit kann ich beim besten Willen nichts anfangen. Es tut mir wirklich leid, aber ich finde auch diesen Rockley am Gaumen banal. Wäre nicht der Lust auf mehr machende Geruch, bekäme der Rum von mir sogar noch 5 Punkte weniger.”
