Retasting this one on a regular basis and today I enjoy it again. A lovely rum from nose to finish. Got this one today and it is a wonderful rum well worth the price tag. Slightly dry in the finish but great overall from nose to finish.

Intense and more on the spicy side than expected. Alcohol is not integrated perfectly, however. A few drops of water help to mitigate.

Un rhum puissant qui développe de belles notes de colle dans un premier temps, puis continue sur des notes épicées (piment) et boisées avant de plonger vers des notes douces de massepain et de toffee et de finir vers un registre plus fruité. Toujours aussi intense en bouche, le rhum conserve un profil légèrement fruité, mais surtout dominé par des notes épicées et boisées, avec un soupçon d’arômes végétaux, toastées et de cuir. La finale, assez longue, révèle des tannins et une certaine amertume apportée par la réglisse, mais conserve le même profil épicé, boisé et de cuir avec une touche d’herbes et de caramel. Un rhum intense et sec qui représente sa distillerie comme il se doit.

Viel Holz, sehr würzig bis pfeffrig. Angenehme, nicht zu süße Vanille. Etwas Banane, aber nicht überreif und ein paar Kräuter. Der Alkohol bleibt ein wenig kantig, jedoch nicht unangenehm. Gefällt mir.

Nez : boisé fin en fond, fruits tropicaux, et dominance d'arômes sucrés et pâtissiers (pâte d'amande, crème brûlée, caramel, vanille, pâtisserie) puis fruits à coque Nez extrêmement gourmand ! Bouche : très intense, chaude, ronde, gourmand, boisé, pâtissier Bonne longueur

Anfänglich chemische Komponenten, wie Lösungsmittel und Klebstoff in der Nase. Gefolgt von tropischen Früchten, Holz, Gewürzen und Kräutern. Am Gaumen gibt sich der Last Ward trocken, intensiv und komplex. Pflanzliche und holzigen Aromen, Vanille, Kräuter, Gewürze. Leider auch etwas bitter. Der Nachklang gibt sich weiterhin würzig mit einer Kräuternote. Aber die Bitterkeit, die sich am Gaumen ankündigte, setzt sich im Nachklang fort und endet leider metallisch, was dem 2009er Last Ward leider ein paar Punkte kostet.

C'est bien fait mais le profil de cette bouche ne m'a pas plu. Dommage car le nez annonçait de belles choses.

In der Nase steigt Karamell mit leichten würzigen Noten auf! Im Hintergrund reife Orange! Insgesamt sehr sanft und edel. Alkohol ist kaum spürbar Am Gaumen zunächst Karamell, junges Holz mit Pfeffer, nach hinten heraus leicht getoastet! Der Alkohol ist perfekt eingebunden. Im Abgang überwiegen die würzigen leicht holzigen Noten! Dieser ist aber relativ kurz! Ein angenehmer leckerer Barbados
