I love this rum because of its fruitiness and I have an extra backup on the shelf. The nose is really fruity with spices. The palate is lightly bitter, yet sweet and balanced. Fruity from the start with spices and oa with a hint of varnish. The finish is long and lightly bitter with roasted oak and caramel. Price to quality is very good.

Die Nase ist sehr fruchtig und würzig. Der Gaumen ist leicht bitter, süss und holzig - karamellig. Der Abgang ist lang und leicht bitter mit Röst - Holznoten. Der Alkohol ist wunderbar eingebunden.

Solider und Recht junger und heller Guyana VSG! Nicht zu Holzig, schöne Würze und Frucht und ein schönes Aroma von Zimt, Muskat, Bratapfel und etwas Karamell. Im Abgang dann dezent Tannine, dunkle Schokolade und junges Holz.

Nez très boisé et vanillé. Des sensations de pomme et de terre me viennent. En bouche, c'est chaud, épicé, sucré, sur la réglisse mais avec une légère amertume en fin de bouche. Le rhum gagne a se réchauffer et devient finalement caramélisé, épais, délicieux. Finale moyenne. Jolie découverte qui gagne en intérêt avec le temps et la température qui monte. Édit 2e dégustation : conforme à la première dégustation. C'est très agréable. Légèrement trop alcoolique pour un début de line-up mais vraiment sympa.

A new boring tasting session with young pot still single cask Guyanese rums. Kill Devil 12y, 61,1% Barikenn 8y, 63,3% The Nectar 10y, 62,5% SBS 10y, 64,6% C: Gold N: 5min in and this is the most not-Guyana of the bunch. I imagen this as how a well-aged Foursquare pot still would be. It has that warmness. Red and yellow apples, nail-polish remover and ripe bananas. Celery as well. Was this rum partly aged in the Caribbean? The nose will appear to those who like sweetness and nastiness in their rum. Worthy Park anyone? Love the nose! M: Lots of red apples, much like The Nectar, but floral and a bit sour with good balance. Nice mouthfeel. A few rubber bands are there too. F: Short and ohhh floral. B: Yes. Why boring? Every rum brings something slightly different, but I like them all.

Sehr guter Guyaner. Schön Rund mit sehr gut eingebundenem Alkohol. Daher eine hervorragende Trinkstärke.
