How does this rum taste?

Aged Demerara with a rich, roasted profile; notes of dark chocolate, tobacco, and ripe berries with a hint of coconut. Deeply satisfying and complex, it's a luxurious treat that excels with time and suits cooler atmospheres.

“Sample from the 12th GRF, Berlin. And this vintage is a very special one for me 😉. One of the old, venerable Demeraras... Nose: intense and beautifully thick aroma, characterized by toasty-woody and spicy-fruity notes. The first thing that stands out for me is pleasant but old tobacco. Next to it is molasses, more caramel than liquorice, dried orange peel and kumquat. A heavy sweetness of ripe blackberry and very dark sweet cherry. Atypical, but a very light coconut note can be detected. Overall, it also has a chocolaty effect. I like it very much. 9.1 Palate: powerful and clearly dark-roasted and woody, but without being unpleasantly bitter. Wood acidity and old wood can already be tasted, but molasses covers up nicely here too. Somewhat salty and lots of dark chocolate and mocha, with nutmeg and old tobacco at the back. Lags a little behind the beautiful nose. 8.9 It's really something special to be able to taste these old rums. I really like their profile, hence the very good 9.0 points.”
