„This one was the odd one out at the tasting and what a way to close the evening. A very fresh and fruity rum once rested. The balance between the flavors is almost a perfect symphony and I like how well the ABV has been integrated. The flavours were there from opening and pouring and the empty glas was really nice at the end of the evening.“

„The nose already makes a clear announcement: Ester full blast! Marzipan, fermented fruit and nail polish. The palate is insanely intense with tropical, (overripe) fruits, varnish and marzipan. With a few drops of water, the nose opens up again and the (brut) rum becomes more approachable. Wow, this high ester rum is really fun!Great representative of Funky New Yarmouth! Since I look forward to a cross-tastings with the rums of CDI.“

„Here my expectations were met 100%. The 2 additional years in the barrel round off the already very horny 2005 new Yarmouth very much, here are almost no corners and edges more to find and becomes extremely Süffig! Banana bread“

„ester level in the red range 😜 This is then also confirmed by a look at the Vidya website: Marque NYE/WM, so on par with HD C<>H. So it comes across on the nose, fermented fruit, sour buttermilk, and neat nail polish. The fine pastry notes that are often added to the high-ester HDs, I can't find here, unfortunately. The palate is less brute, more spice (somehow also spice like peppernuts) and wood barrel. The finish is quite 'digestible' compared to the often quite sour HD high-ester colleagues ... I like it overall!“
