Yesterday I opened the second of my collection of the three hearts collection. At the same time I have finally found the perfect chocolate to reset and enhance my palate when tasting. I can recommend the 70% chocolate from Peru made from the Chuncho Bean (Trinidad). This bottle is also a really nice one and there is no doubt that it's an Appleton Estate in the nose nor the palate. A great rum probably already sold out. It was gone here in Denmark the day it was released and the bottle prices have already skyrocketed.

Puissant, gourmand, assez proche d'un Guyana dans l'esprit

In der Nase Lösungsmittel, Leim und getrocknete Früchte. Ich könnte ewig dran riechen. Am Gaumen dann viel Holz und Lakritze, sehr komplex. Ein sehr langer, sehr schöner Abgang. Toller Rum, gefällt mir besser als der 1999.

Im Vergleich zum 99er ne Spur erwachsener. Bei dem Finish braucht es keine Zigarre mehr. Die ist schon integriert. Nur blöd das ich nicht rauche. 😅 Es weiß aber trotzdem sehr gut zu gefallen, eben deutlich dreckigeres Profil👍 Ein bisschen vermisse ich nur etwas deutlichere Fruchtnoten im Abgang. Gibt man ihm genug Zeit wird er immer besser, von daher ein Extrapunkt 😋👌

im direkten Vergleich den 94er, 95er und 99er. Nase: der 94er im Hintergrund mit leichter Minze/Mentholnote, der 99er etwas kräutriger und im Hintergrund Apfelessig (vielleicht auch Balsamico) und Zimtstange. Der 95er mit Orangenschale und Möbelpolitur, die ich auch oft bei 96er Caronis in der Nase habe. Am Gaumen wiederum ist der 95er der ‚Außenseiter’ mit sehr ausgeprägten, verkohlten Noten; der 94er gefällt mir hier am besten. das

Took me a long while, to recognize something in the smell. The age has mellowed out this rum a bit, I think.

RumX-Adventskalender, 12.12., blind, Erster Eindruck: fruchtig-würzig-süße-Guyana-Nase und trocken-holzig-kräftiger-KFM-Gaumen. Total falsch, wie schon beim 94er. In der Nase dem 94er ähnlich, doch dunkler und holziger, würziger, bitterer. Trotzdem sehr fruchtig mit einer feinen Süße. Alte Blutorange mit dunkler, saurer Johannisbeere, getrockneter Aprikose, Pflaume, liebliche Papaya und Passionsfrucht. Etwas Essig. Sehr karamellig mit dunklem Honig. Trockenes Holz und Vanille. Etwas seifig. Lecker! Am Gaumen kräftig, holzig, würzig, btter-salzig. Etwas Seifiges mit leichter Melisse kommt durch. Etwas Vanille mit Kardamom, Pfeffer und Muskat. Deutlich röstig Richtung Mokka. Hinten schwarze Johannisbeere. Die Komplexität begeistert, aber hat er einen eigenen Charakter? Ein krasser Rum!!

RumX Adventskalender 12.12.21: Eine sensationelle Nase hat dieser Tropfen. Man könnte endlos daran riechen. Im Mund traf er dann leider zu wenig meinen Geschmack. Blind war ich irgendwo zwischen Caroni und New Yarmouth. Im Vergleich zur Serie war dies derjenige, welcher mir am wenigstens gefallen hat.
