“Die Nase ist absolute Weltklasse, am Gaumen wird die Verwässerung dann leider zu stark spürbar. Kaum auszudenken, was das Ausgangsdestillat - vor der Verdünnung - für ein Potenzial gehabt haben muss. Immer noch ein spannender Rum, aber nach der Nase waren die Erwartungen deutlich höher als das, was am Gaumen dann tatsächlich noch passierte.”

“Very interesting rum from a distillery I have never tried. Sadly on 42% but very tasty. Loads of oak and wood/winterly spices. Dried fruits. Something old sherry cask-que. If this was on 50% it would taste HUGE. But watered down not too bad either. Very characterful. I love it.”
