Scuro, intenso con una bellissima parte di ananas grigliato e sentori di barile carbonizzato! L’ anice è molto presente e i sentori di caffè gli danno una bella nota di amarezza! Per chi ama le cose fuori dall’ ordinario deve bere questo monymusk!

Supergeile Nase. Lösungsmittel, Kleber, Politur, alte Komode und dann frisches Bananenbrot. Getrocknete Früchte, tropische Früchte. Warm, voll, komplex und leicht stechender Alkohol. Im Mund warm, voll, fett und ölig. Tolle Fassreife, fürs Alter und in Anbetracht der Verweildauer in den Tropen mehr als dezent. Alkohol sehr gut integriert, brennt aber trotzdem den Rachen aus. Im Abgang Eiche und Kräuter. Toller Monymusk und toller Jamaikaner. Gemeinsam mit dem 1995 verkostet. Dieser ist einiges reifer und fassdominiert, viel weniger fruchtig.

Wow, was für eine mega Nase - reif und elegant. Gefällt mir deutlich besser als der EMB von Habitation Velier.

I just got this bottle today and I just had to have a go at it right away and wow, just wow, close to the perfect rum for me :-) The nose is wonderfully fruity from opening the bottle and while it was resting I had to sniff it several times. Besides fruits there is spices and barrel with a touch of esters and varnish. The palate is matching the nose and then some. Intense and warm as well as well balanced and complex. Fruits and spices from the start then chocolate, tea, coffee and ester. The finish is forever with oak, spices, coffee and some orange peel to top it off.

Sehr schöner EMB, wenn auch lange nicht so geil komplex und fruchtig wie der 95er. Insbesondere die lychee, Minze, Sandelholz, Schoko Note finde ich extrem spannend, der Braucht aber ganz schön Zeit um sich so komplett zu öffnen! Abgang ist Verhältnismäßig kurz im Vergleich zu anderen EMB's ... Sonst wäre die Bewertung höher.

Intensive, schöne und fruchtig-würzige Nase. Sehr voll und rund. Hier wieder die getrocknete, geschwefelte Aprikose im Vordergrund. Dahinter Sauerkirsche, Johannisbeere, Ananas und Rosine. Süße von herbem Waldhonig und Vanille. Am Gaumen hab ich als erstes einen herb-süßen Charakter und sogleich auch bitter-würzig-salzig. Dann schiebt sich etwas fruchtiges von Passionsfrucht und Papaya dazu. Muskat und Vanille unterstreichen den auch holzigen Ton. Hinten kommen noch etwas Tee und Minze. Im Abgang bleibt er holzig fruchtig und geht in Richtung Schwarztee mit Minze. Toller, alter Monymusk!
