“Benchmark Rockley! ❤️A liquid dream!Compared to the SS, Nobilis and Plantation, it has both the best nose and the best palate. Very nice roundness, alcohol top integrated, some smoke, but overall a honey monster!”

“Kopf-an-Kopf mit dem Silver Seal und für mich eine Nasenspitze voraus - wobei das beim nächsten Vergleich schon wieder anders herum ausfallen kann. Auch hier Rauch, Honig, frische Fruchtigkeit, dazu grüne Noten - das Rundum-Verwöhnprogramm für Aficionados, die jede Verkostung zu einer Sternstunde des Rums macht. Immer wieder ein Genuss!”

“One of the world's best rums fällig? For me, this applies to this one in many respects, even objectively considered. Because what the perfectly selected barrel in fasst 35 perfect years here with the rum has organized, is just madness and definitely liquid gold.After about three quarters of an hour, you get here in the form of intense honey, beeswax, pine needles, resin, mango, vanilla and smoke Rockley essence presented...and in its most intense form. Not an ounce of alcohol here tangents this outstanding aroma package. The palate is incredibly oily, sweet, velvety, warm and not a trace of alcohol. The only thing that keeps me here from 100 points, are the perhaps 4% too little ABV and that the world's best PMs according to my gusto are again somewhat more complete”
