Etwas bitterer und erwachsener als der etwas ältere #26er. Typischer für guadeloupe. Nicht so mein Fall.

In der Nase noch schöne Fruchtnoten, dominieren am Gaumen und im Abgang sehr viele röstige Noten von altem Mokka, Leder und etwas Gewürz! Eigentlich mein Ding, aber in diesem Fall mir etwas zu einseitig

Solider Karukera, was bereits hohes Niveau bedeutet. Wiederum gelungene Melange aus Holz, Würze und milder Süsse gepaart mit dezenten Fruchtnoten - hier mit etwas stärkeren Akzenten auf der Würzigkeit, was sicher auch dem etwas höheren Alkoholgehalt zuzuschreiben ist. Nicht mein Karukera-Favorit, aber unbestritten ein vorzüglicher Rum.

Farbe: Altgold Geruch: Zurückhaltend süß mit schwachen pflanzlichen Aromen. Dabei insgesamt weniger frisch und süß als Cask No. 26. Riecht fruchtig nach Ananas, Birne und gekochter Banane. Zudem Eichenholz und Honig. Geschmack: Zu Beginn sehr kräftig und wenig süß. Beim Schlucken würzig-scharf, dabei intensiv mit viel Honig sowie kandierten Früchten, Karamell und Tabak. Abgang: Honig, schön würzig, kräftig und lang. Trocken-holzig im Nachgeschmack. Fazit: Klasse Rum, in etwa auf dem gleichen Niveau wie das Schwesterfass No. 26. 89 Punkte
