Sehr komplex, ohne an irgendeiner Stelle unausgewogen zu werden. Besonders beeindruckend ist die Holznote, die dem Rum eine edle Tiefe verleiht, die sich an der Grenze zum zu Bitteren bewegt, ohne aber die übrigen Noten zu überlagern. Schwere, dichte Konsistenz. Sehr schön integrierter Alkohol. Einziger Wermutstropfen: Blind verkostet sticht er im Vergleich mit anderen Skeldons nicht so weit heraus, dass ich mich der perfekten Punktzahl anschliesse. Ändert aber nichts an der herausragenden Qualität.

In questi anni in cui mi sono appassionato a questo distillato ho sempre sognato di assaggiare questo mitico rum! E oggi anche io posso fare parte di queste persone che hanno avuto il privilegio di farlo! Non so se esiste la perfezione ma questo rum lo è decisamente! Davvero intenso nei sapori e negli odori! Si riesce a percepire tutto in maniera nitida! Il finale è infinito! Chapeu!

Ein Erlebnis diesen Tropfen im Glas zu haben. Dunkel, verbrannt, intensiv - ein ganz eigenes Profil! Für mich aber weit weg von den perfekten 100 Punkten.

Meiner persönlichen Meinung nach ist dieser Rum sehr gut, hat auch unbestritten sein eigenes Profil, ich hätte mir aber anhand der Ratings etwas mehr versprochen. Ich durfte ihn nun zwei Mal doppelt blind verkosten, ohne zu Wissen, welche Spirituose sich überhaupt im Glas befindet. Es gibt für meinen Geschmack bessere Rums. Dennoch eine sehr gute Abfüllung.

Im Vergleich zum Skeldon73 weniger Bitterkeit, dafür mehr fruchtige Klebstoffnote. Besser geht’s nicht! Unglaublich rund, komplex, unfassbar langer Abgang...

Mit viel Erfurcht und Respekt tritt man dieser Abfüllung entgegen, angesichts Preis und Ruf. Leider hab ich zum Zeitpunkt der Verkostung keinen Kommentar verfasst und muss etwas aus der Erinnerung berichten. Die Nase war brachial und führt einen in Sachen tropisch gereiften Demerara Rum zum Olymp. Unglaublich Intensiv, komplex und tief. Viel Klebstoff, getrocknete Früchte, kräftige Melasse, Würze, Tabak..... Das erschlägt einen beinahe, da auch kaum Alkohol wahrnehmbar ist. Im Mund wiederholt sich das ganze, allerdings ist er dort für mich schon merklich überlagert. So beeindruckt ich auch war, so ist es für mich trotz allem kein 100 Punkte Rum. Zu krass und speziell ist das für mich, so dass ich so etwas vielleicht nur 2-3 mal im Jahr bräuchte. Beeindruckende Erfahrung!
