Ein Rum, den man eigentlich gar nicht nicht mögen kann. Supergefälliges, süsses Profil, ohne dabei jemals plump, klebrig oder uninteressant zu wirken. Auch die weiteren Aromen rund um Rauch, Würze und Nüsse sind derart harmonisch eingebettet, dass sich weder zu viel Bitterkeit, Würzschärfe noch zu abgedroschene Süsse einstellen. Diese Balance geht leider etwas zu Lasten der Komplexität, weshalb es für mich nicht zu allerhöchstem Weihen reicht. Trotzdem eindrückliche Qualität und ein ausgezeichneter Rum, der sein vorhandenes Aromenprofil in Perfektion zeigt.

Per me un altro capolavoro targato Demerara & Velier! Quello che fino ad oggi assomiglia di più allo skeldon 78! Davvero intenso e ricco, il rum ti si appiccica alla bocca e il suo sapore ti rimane per molto moltissimo tempo! Chapeau!

Etwas trockener als der El Dorado.

Un rhum aussi rare qu’onéreux, mais dont la qualité est indéniable. Le nez est absolument divin, très équilibré et gourmand entre les fruits exotiques et les notes chocolatées, caramélisées et épicées de Demerara. Une pointe de colle se fait également ressentir. On retrouve un rhum très complexe et profond en bouche, tourné vers un profil sombre mais aussi très fruité et exubérant. L’alcool est parfaitement intégré. La finale est très longue, elle poursuit la trame sombre du palais avec quelques notes de thé et se veut aussi délicate qu’aromatique. Un rhum intense qui propose une expérience unique. Il est dommage que ce nectar d’exception soit devenu inaccessible et un produit spéculatif.

Blind den Velier 94er gegen den El Dorado 04er getestet. Wow. Beide! Der hier ist markanter, holziger, würziger und kräftiger. Der ED runder, gefälliger, fruchtig-schokoladiger. Genauer Nase: würzig-holzig-floral-fruchtig. Herber, trockener Anklang. Braun und würzig, etwas Maronen. Kirsche + Orange. Dann die getrocknete Pflaume. Viel Holz mit Vanille. Leichte Lackritz-Note mit Karamell und würzigem Sandelholz. Gaumen: kräftig, holzig, komplex und vollmundig. Angenehm bitter, etwas Muskat, getrocknete Pflaume mit Bitterorangenschale. Malzig, braun, dunkel, röstig. Hinten Lakritz. Hammer!

Auf einer Ebene mit Diamond 1996 und Uitvlugt 1997, nur anders (im positiven Sinne)

Un rum devenu aujourd'hui "légende" auprès des amateurs et des investisseurs. Dégusté à plusieurs reprises afin de le comprendre vraiment. Un rum épais, dense et "arômatiquement" très "noir". Tous se croisent : Tabac, cuir, fleurs, fruits secs, fruits confits, mais la domination est clairement établie du côté grillé, viandé, huileux et épicé. Épais et huileux en bouche, épicé, toasté, vineux et empyreumathique. longue et sèche finale sur les tannins hyper dominants, belle astringence sur de grosses notes de cuir, tabac et pruneaux. Grande finale !
