This one has a somewhat thinner texture compared to its 2001 Skeldon brothers. Excellent bottling nevertheless!

I have had a short break from tasting because I felt like 2-3 days a week with tasting was a bit over the top. Back in shape again and we had a wonderful evening yesterday. This was the last one and what a rum. Nice and fruity from nose to finish. Spicy on the palate with a light dryness to it.

ziemlich guter und gefälliger Skeldon / SWR. Dörrpflaume, Tabak, Karamell an der Nase. Am Gaumen mehr Richtung Rosine und Cappuccino. Auf ähnlich hohem Niveau wie die S.B.S 2001er Skeldon-Abfüllungen.

Granatenmäßig guter und süffiger Diamond mit genau der richtigen Alkoholstärke! absolute Diamond Referenz!💯🤤 geschmacklich wie dunkler verbrannter Demerara Zucker mit Kaffee, dunkler Schokolade, Toffee, Früchtebrot und getrockneter Aprikose mit kandiertem Ingwer. sehr geil!

Kein Rum den ich oft im Glas habe, aber wenn es denn wieder soweit ist, einer der, der mich immer wieder erstaunt und doch irgendwie geil finde. Einfach was völlig anderes, was ich persönlich sonst so kenne. Die Viskosität ist der Wahnsinn, der Rum beißt sich regelrecht ins Glas. Ausgeprägte trockenfruchtigkeit, Süßholz, Lakritze, Heidehonig, Malz, getoastetes Fass, Kräuter. Im Mund eine cremige Honigsüße, sehr gefällig mit Süßholz, Kräuter, Fass, leichter Bitterkeit..... Eigentlich fast 1 zu 1 was man auch in der Nase hat, nur etwas runder und gefälliger. Sehr schön, aber auch sehr speziell

Guter Skeldon! Ich bevorzuge aber lieber die tropische Variante..

In der Nase sehr süss und fruchtig! Überreife Kischen. Am Gaumen sehr weich, mild, fast schon flüchtig. Die Süße nach Karamell und gebrannten Zucker überwiegt! Im Abgang leicht adstringierend trocken ! Ein guter aber nicht überragender Skeldon
