Ein klassischer Appleton ist das sicher nicht, da ist sicher der 94er New Yarmouth-Batch viel näher dran. Blind würde ich eher auf Demerara tippen. Die Nase wunderschön und unique, Appleton auch im Hintergrund erkennbar. Im Mund dann schwierig, sehr viel Lakritze und Kräuter. Der Alkohol ist super integriert, die 21 Jahre tropische Reifung resultierten in viel Tiefe und Fülle. Erwartungen erfüllt? Nein. Trotzdem ein sehr interessanter schöner Rum. Edit: Die Flasche ist nun ein Jahr offen. Lakritz und Kräuter sind getrockneten Früchten gewichen. Echt toll zu trinken, ein hervorragender Rum! Gestern ein Glas zu einer perfekt gereiften Cazadores genossen.

This was a very nice surprise. I was lucky to get my hands on all 3 releases and this is the first one I sampled yesterday. A rum that brings you to cloud 152 and never let's you down again. A super rich nose with fruit and oak. There is something elegant about the nose. The palate, once you get used to the proof, is even more wonderful than the nose. Spicy, warm, and bit herbal and medicinal. Super long finish and not your typical Jamaican funky rum!

Nose: the alcohol burn kinda covers most of the initial flavors..although I get some light fruity notes (plums and maybe figs?) then toffee, vanilla, licorice. It slowly develops a very gentle note of wood and leather (I guess..). A couple of drops of water release more of those fruity notes (raisins), together with some herbal/earthy flavors. Palate: wow, unexpected to say the least..it jumps at you with salted caramel notes, then the alcohol burn kicks in, followed by a spicy, peppery note. For me, the best of the initial set!

Für mich der schwächste der Serie. Etwas zu kräutrig.

RumXmas #19, blind: I have to stop reading here (RumX forum) before I taste, it’s highly influential. I can’t get past everything you’ve described (@Stylo) and agree with most of it. A little bit less salted caramel and more burnt sugar for me. And maybe some orange, orange peel, orange marmelade? A bit like Jaffa cakes? As it sits in the glass, the alcohol fades away in the nose. On the palate however, it remains very present. ABV in the sixties. Guyana or Appleton 1999 seems to me like a good conclusion . The orange thingy does makes me look more towards Appleton 1999. 🥳🙌🏼😎

RumX-Adventskalender, 19.12., blind. Erster Eindruck: könnte Guyana sein, der Gaumen geht aber doch Richtung Jamaika. Holzig-fruchtig und leicht vinegar in der Nase. Intensiv und komplex. Wie bei den anderen beiden schön orange und karamellig und etwas Ahornsirup. Hier etwas mehr in Richtung Sauerkirsche und Papaya, leicht malzig und ein Hauch Lakritz hinten. Am Gaumen frischer als die beiden anderen. Holzig aber mit etwas wie Safran und Muskat. Auch hier etwas Karamell, aber mit mehr Biss. Leicht bitter-salzig. Eine Fruchtigkeit, die an gelben Apfel erinnert. Ganz Hinten im Abgang eindeutig Litchi und etwas Karamell. Von den drei Hearts der zweit beste nach dem 94er. Gefällt mir aber auch echt gut.

19.12.21 RumX Adventskalender Blindverkostung: In der Nase kommen bei mir blumige, erdige Noten an, Geranie bspw. auch Trauben und Nuss. Im Gaumen dann pfeffrig, scharfkantig, Früchte, medizinisch, Konfekt, Gewürze. Ein toller Rum. Schön komplex, da gehts einiges. Für eine höchere Bewertung ist er mir jedoch zu bitter und zu scharfkantig.

Nachdem der Rum sich geöffnet hat kommen schöne tropische Fruchtnoten durch von angenehmer Würze begleitet. Entwickelt im Finish eine wohltuende Wärme, was mir sehr gut gefällt

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.

Tag 19, 4. Advent, RumX Adventskalender: Aus einer gewissen Systematik heraus habe ich heute schon ohne zu testen gedacht, das wird bestimmt der 3. aus der Appleton Hearts Collection. Trotzdem blind verkostet: deutlich frisch fruchtiger wie die erwartete Nase aus dem 1994er oder 1995, hier Richtung Ananas. Dann kommt auch wieder das pflanzliche und kräuterige. Am Gaumen ähnlich. Im Abgang recht bitter und bisschen salzig, olivig. Insgesamt ein guter, komplexer, Rum. Ich fand 1994 und 1995 aber besser. Vielen Dank für die Möglichkeit, die Hearts Collection probieren zu können.
