It tastes like the Rum Fire so I believe it’s the same rum in another bottle. The finish is rather long. Overall it’s funky, potent, complex and powerful without being too pungent.

Ein süßliches Aroma, alkoholisch, Klebstoff. Der Geschmack ist süßlich, leicht alkoholisch brennend, dabei aber angenehm. Der Nachklang ist kräftig und lange wärmend anhaltend.

Zur Zeit sind immer wieder Samples in meinem Schrank aufgetaucht.. Keine Ahnung wer die immer bestellt;-) so auch dieser klare overproof mit 63 Umdrehungen. In der Nase hat man gleich die volle Parade Ester. Diesen habe ich die letzten Monate immer mehr zu schätzen gelernt. Mag sowas wirklich. Ebenso eine schöne Apfelnote. Der Geschmack ist sehr pflanzlich. Auch hier spielt die estersache wieder ordentlich mit. Im Nachhall hauen die 63 Prozent rein und man merkt das der rum schweer ist als er zuerst scheint. Die Noten bleiben noch lange erhalten.. Klasse rum

Farbe: Farblos Geruch: Wenig intensiv mit überraschend dezenten Ester Aromen. Dafür kräuterig, schwach süß, Zuckerrohr. Erinnert mich eher an Aguardente als an Rum. Nach einiger Zeit kommt dann Patex-Geruch auf, etwas Lösungsmittel- und Frucht-Ester. Geschmack: Leicht süß, dabei überraschend cremig, weich und mild trotz der 63%. Das muss an dem "Triple Distilled" liegen. Schmeckt eindeutig nach Aguardente. Kräutersud und ebenfalls überraschend Lakritze Aromen (obwohl der nie im Leben Holz gesehen hat). Abgang: Lang, würzig, trocken und kräuterig. Minimal Ester kommen hoch Den hätte ich im Leben nicht als Hampden erkannt. Fazit: Wie ich gelesen habe ein sehr guter Rum zum mixen. Eher nicht zum pur trinken zu empfehlen.

Jamaica unverkennbar, aber eher zum Mixen als pur
