I'd say that this release is a step up from the 1988. Better balanced, more complex and beter rounded. The nose is very fruity from pouring with roasted nuts and coffee. After airing you get some catamel and spice. The palate is complex yet very well balanced and true to the nose with fruits, sweet vanilla and toasted wood. The feeling on the palate is a velvety lightly warm rum. There is a lot of wood on the palate but not too dominant. The finish is medium to long with dried fruit, nuts and wood. Price to quality can be discussed but I think this is a collectible for many.

It’s a very approachable and incredible easy rum to drink. It really just rolls of the palette with huge amounts of brown sugar and currants. I fear it may be dosed but for a 25 year old rum there is remarkable little barrel influence and it is all sugar and dried fruit on the mouth. The finish is the weakest part of the rum, a bit short and lacking but the body is unmistakably good with real layers and complexity. It is the type of rum you could easily drink a glass off and not even notice. It lacks the excitement of other rums but at this age and taking it at face value it is a great rum
