sehr sehr leckerer Nachfolger für den velier Antigua 2012. nicht ganz so komplex, dafür aber fast noch süffiger , deutlich dunkler & würziger, weniger fruchtig und eine unheimlich geile dunkle Schokoladenbrownie/Cookie Note. sehr geiler Stoff vor allem für das Geld!🇦🇬🙏💥❤️👌🏽

Bei den ersten Malen konnte ich noch nicht viel mit diesem Rum anfangen. Trotzdem erstaunt von den milden 64%! Geprägt von Karamell, Schokolade, röstig nussig und Frucht. Mit etwas Wasser verändert sich die Nase. Im Mund dann erstmal scharf würzig und bitter schokoladig, jedoch kaum Frucht. Im Abgang kommt dann süßes Karamell, Schokolade und röstige Aromen durch. Auch die Frucht, ich meine vor allem Banane, erscheint wieder. Lecker und sehr gute Preis-Leistung.

Sehr lecker und intensiv. Alkohol merkt man, aber nicht störend. Macht Spaß.

Despite having no added sugar it’s really really sweet and thick. It would have totally had me a couple of years back when I was into the sweet stuff and by then landed a really high score. After steering away from sweetness I now probably need to rethink the sweetness aspect of it as I still think it’s quite good. Question is should new me or old me give the verdict? Let’s mix em and round up the result…. A few times in on this bottle now and still the same conflicting feelings about it. And even more times in, still the same...

A great rum from ADL. I think it’s great that they now release a high congener rum themselves so that we now don’t need to buy overpriced Velier releases. It’s not possible, at least for me, to distinguish the Velier English Harbour from this one. GREAT RUM !!!

Somewhat harsher than the Velier HTR release despite the same aging. A drop of water greatly enhances this rum and opens up its profile.

Très bon rum. Cela ressemble pas mal à un foursquare 2007 mais avec moins de solvants. Un petit peu moins complexe en bouche aussi. Mais très gourmand et très agréable.

Solider Cremiger Everyday-Sipper mir viel Power. Erinnert mich an Barbados mit dem Kokos, vielleicht wie ein leichter Foursquare fast. Schönes PLV und schöne Abfüllung.

Sehr ausgewogen. Am Anfang ein wenig scharf in Nase und Geschmack. Kurz stehen lassen. Danach erinnert er an Rum aus Barbados, aber wenig süß und stattdessen würziger. Der Abgang sehr trocken. Angenehm, aber der Alkohol könnte besser eingebunden sein.

At the price tag this is a very nice rum. The nose is fruity and full of spices topped with some barrel and caramel in the back. The palate is heavy yet sweet with fruit and spice. In the back i get chocolate and oak. The finish is medium to long with vanilla, cocoa and nice toasted oak.
