“Tasted this blind for 1st Advent, quite sharp at first, which lead to funky fruity mix indictating a Jamaican. Surprise, it was not! 😏 It is said to have some citrus, which I missed completely though. 2cl sometimes ain't enough... I also expected this to be onmly slightly aged, it was 10 years, however.”

“#1. avent sample from the RumXCalendar. Blind tasting: Very interesting nose… it reminds me on a classic young hampden/jamaican, but in mouth it‘s very different. It lacks in the finish, really woody and smoky. Never thought this is from south pacific and has 10 years 🙈🙈 Nose: fruity, funky, pineapple, sweet, burnt sugar, citrus, ester. Mouth: solvents, fruit schnaps, roasted nuts, dark chocolate, spicy, liquorice. Finish: a lot of smoke, roasted, vanilla, oak.”

“1. Tag im RumX-Adventskalender. Fiji als Land direkt erkannt, die Abfüllung war in der näheren Auswahl, unter anderem wegen des hohen Alkoholgehalts. Sehr ölig, mit fetten Schlieren im Glas zeigt sich der Alkohol sowohl in der Nase als auch am Gaumen nicht gerade zurückhaltend. Ansonsten ist eine gewisse Kräutrigkeit in der Nase, die von etwas umgeben wird, das mich an getrocknete Orangenscheiben erinnert. Im Gaumen sind für mich etwas Holz und Nelke erwähnenswert, die eine enorme Trockenheit erzeugen. Fiji mag ich oft sehr, diese Abfüllung schafft es aber nicht in den engeren Kreis.”
