„The Cave Guildive is more complex and powerful in comparison. The RA seems somewhat watered down by the 47.1%. The finish is extremely long and beautiful. Reminds me of a Fiji rum. The typical honey note is there, but not quite as present.“

„This is a good WIRD but obviously less tasty than 1986 vintage.“

„Dried fruit throughout in a smoky bed coated with honey on the palate and some marzipan on the nose. In principle, but has little to do with the 1986 forest walk in terms of taste.“

„beautiful honeycomb Rockley nose. Also on the palate, the interplay of honey and oak barrel harmonizes really well. The finish is round (spicy). However, it lacks a little complexity and intensity for a top note.“

„Needs a quite some time to breath. Nose starts out rather closed up with a lot of (bitter-ish) herbs with notes of honey, coco and fruits developing over time. ABV is a little low on this one. Does not feel to much watered down, however, the CG bottling of the 2000 has just the upper hand with enhanced intensity. Nevertheless a very nice rum at its initial price tag.“

„Ja, es ist kein 86er, aber der Stil kommt deutlich heraus, und das gefällt mir. Nase: vordergründig etwas Graphit mit ein wenig Phenol und dieser schönen Salzigkeit. Ich finde Frucht in Richtung getrockneter Aprikose und eine würzige Honig-Note mit Bienenwabe. Hinten raus getrockneter Rosmarin und ein leicht vinegarer Unterton von eingelegter Olive. Gaumen: am Anfang ein leicht verwässerter, flacher Eindruck, kommt aber dann schön mit seinen speziellen Aromen. Wieder leicht salzig und dann frisch geschnittenes Geäst, Eichenlaub, Graphit, etwas frische Minzblätter, getr. Aprikose. Gefällt!!“

„The nose is rather in the restraint! We find notes of honey, smoked, tobacco, fruits and vanilla! The mouth is creamy and greedy. It draws on vanilla, woody, smoky and like a touch of olive. The finish is on peppery chocolate but lacks length for a rum of this caliber. I'm happy to have tasted it because I own a bottle, but I admit I have to think about its future. Because it disappointed me a bit. Not that it is bad, but it is too sweet for my taste. I am far from the pleasure of tasting the WIRD 1986 from Nobilis!“

„I would have liked this one with a higher ABV because it is kind of thin around the edges. The nose is fruity with smoky wood and herbal, honey and light vanilla notes. The palate is mild with smoky wood, dried fruit, honey, nuts, chocolate and light vanilla. The finish is medium long and woody with vanilla and chocolate. Leave the empty glass for a few hours and then nose it again to get the lovely chocolate and vanilla notes. Price to quality is OK.“

„Die günstige Abfüllung des Q4/2021 Releases. Nachdem das Jahr mit einem Kracher in Form des Rockleys startete, nun der kleine Bruder. Sehr einladende Nase, wirkt angenehm leicht auf den ersten Atemzug, allerdings wird schnell doch eine tiefere Komplexität deutlich. Schönes Potpourri an Aromen. Am Gaumen zeigt er eine etwas andere Seite: überraschend holzig-bitter für „nur“ 21 Jahre (vs. 35 des 86er). Leider doch sehr dünn, so dass er im Vergleich zur Nase sehr flach wirkt. Abgang länger als erwartet. Sicherlich das beste PLV aus dem Release, aber geschmacklich kein Highlight für mich.“

„Mein erster Rockley. Meine ersten Assoziationen: Whisky und Fiji. Die Nase hat fast nichts von Barbados. Hinter heftig würzigem Honig vor allem Getreide, Rauch und grüner Tee, dann etwas Kernobst und Lake ähnlich wie bei kontinentalgereiften Guyanas. Die Nase ist ganz schön. Ein Nacht im abgedeckten Glas hat in nochmal deutlich weicher gemacht. Fijis erinnern mich im Mund manchmal an verrottendes Gemüse. Das ist zwar bisschen eklig, aber geil. Hier hatte ich für einen kurzen Moment gammligen Fisch im Mund. Das war nur eklig - zum Glück ist davon nur eine leichte Modrigkeit geblieben , aber der Eindruck verfolgt mich. Dafür Lake, Oliven und leicht rauchiger Whisky. Da geht eher wenig. Abgang ist mild mit ähnlichen Noten und dem Tee aus der Nase. Ich trinke lieber Fiji ohne Whisky 🤷‍♂️.“

„Interessanter Tropfen. Hab ständig diese Mate Tee Verbindung, auf jeden Fall sehr floral der Kollege. Leider ein wenig schwach auf der Brust. Er ist schon lecker, kann aber den Hype um WIRD nicht ganz verstehen.“

„Typical Rockley representative, but rather from the form as I do not like it so.has something of rotten, wet and rotten wood.... In addition, there is intense saffron (if you know the aroma), some other herbs and wood again and of course strong honeycomb honey notes, but it seems altogether very watered down and thin. Can not imagine with the best will in the world that ne barrel strength should be. This saffron note is new to me but and is extremely exciting!“

„Mein erster Rockley und er hinterlässt bei mir einen zwiespältigen Eindruck… Einerseits ein vielversprechendes Profil, andererseits fehlt ihm das gewisse Etwas… Vielleicht komme ich ja mal in den Genuss diesen mit der vollen Volumenzahl zu tasten, um mir ein echtes Bild machen zu können !“
