“The nose surprises me at first both positive and negative. Positive is definitely the complexity of fruit, tropical fruit and citrus of all kinds. Also, glue, sulfur, acidity, pepper, nutmeg, anise and, not very surprisingly, a lot of oak. Negative is unfortunately the intensity, I would have expected more. On the palate, however, then very set, most of the flavors are also found in the mouth, but much more intense. Overall, a definitely underrated and incredibly tasty rum. This set and round fruitiness with the equally set spice is just wonderful”

“Even at the second tasting, the alcohol is too poorly integrated and displaces with its strength - at least for my taste - on the palate these really pleasant floral notes in the nose. A bit of a shame, would have liked to give him more points, but do not want to lie to myself in the pocket. Still recommended to buy, acceptable PLV for a solid rum of currently (early February 2022) around 140 EUR, which is still available.Update 2022/02/12: I just like this light nose that reminds a bit of pickles at the end (pleasant!). And today - in direct comparison with the RA EMB 1995 - I find the alcohol level on the palate just right. Conclusion: smooth 3 points more, 85!😊”

“Eine sehr spannende Abfüllung! Dieser Rum liefert eine starke Nase, die ihren jamaikanischen Ursprung nicht verbirgt. Etwas ungewöhnlich für Monymusk sind hier die deutlichen Lack- und Klebstoffnoten, die mit fruchtigen und würzig-holzigen Noten ein rundes Gesamtbild ergeben, das nur noch von einer blumigen Note (Veilchen?) getoppt wird. Am Gaumen überraschen mich gleich mehrere Dinge: Zum einen eine „stichige“ Note, die mich erst den Alkohol vermuten lässt, aber auch in Richtung Essig geht. Gleichzeitig schmecke ich eine Salzigkeit, die dann in eine medizinische, kunststoffähnliche Note übergeht, die mich stark an Fiji erinnert. Dazu Holz, Würze und Röstaromen, wie man das von starken Monymusks gewöhnt ist, wobei hier besonders ein starker Umami-Geschmack vorherrscht. Wirklich spannend!”
