A complex and well balanced rum in my mind, especially when thinking about the age. Very fruity with spices and herbal/minty/floral notes to balance it all. A bottle already gone from most shelves, but definitely worth a buy if you find it. Price to quality is very good.

An der Nase zu Beginn kräutrig-erdig, fast etwas unangenehm Richtung nasser Jutesack. Nach einiger Standzeit dann deutlich fruchtiger, mit Wassermelone und Pfirsich, und auch etwas blumig. Im Hintergrund kommt Konfekt und junges Holz. Am Gaumen Pfirsich und kräutrige Frische. Der Abgang ist eher kurz. Im diplomatischen Sprachgebrauch würde man wohl sagen, ein ‚interessanter‘ Rum.

Bei diesem Rum war ich anfangs zwiegespalten! In der Nase frisch und säuerlich buttrig mit einer Portion Ester ! Am Gaumen dann eine Art Künstlichkeit mit Gummigeschmack, später gesellt sich eine säuerliche pflanzliche Note mit Kräuteresszenz dazu! Der Rum verteilt sich cremig ölig im Mundraum, der Alkohol ist gut eingebunden, der Abgang ist kurz und unspektakulär! Nach einer zweiten Verkostung war ich mir dann sicher: Der Rum ist unharmonisch und nicht meins

Krass was ein paar % mehr und 3y im Fass im Vergleich zum takamaka White ausmachen. Als würde man Mate/Kräutertee mit Pfirsich Schwarztee mischen, dazu etwas Zimt, Nelke und Gewürz/Früchte-Brot, ordentlich Holz, dezent wieder Mate und Zitronenverbene. Sehr spannend & sehr komplex aber auch sehr gewöhnungsbedürftig. Mir persönlich ist er etwas zu holzig und würzig und der Alkohol könnte besser integriert sein.

Un rhum assez transparent. Le nez est assez léger sur les jeunes fruits tropicaux. La bouche rejoint le nez avec des notes plus florales et médicinales. La finale est courte.

Sweet juice, with lots of lemon and orange peal. Like sweet-citric cocktail on nose. Banana. Pineapple. Young. Гогль-могль! с сахаром. (Нос) Palate: young. sweet chawing gum, again fresh tropical fruits. To be honest expectations was higher. With water comes out more vanilla, plombir ice cream.

Un peu décevant par rapport au blanc. Le nez ne me plaît pas mais la bouche est sympa, sans plus.

I really enjoyed this and absolutely have no understanding for the low reviews. I thought it was absolutely delightful for its high alcohol and young age, a bomb of flavour. Had a sample, immediately bought a bottle.

Très déçu de ce Velier ! Franchement l’impression de boire un mauvais médicament et de mâcher du caoutchouc. Astringence au maximum, je ne finirai pas ce split de 3cl. Un des premiers rhums de ma petite expérience qui me déçoit à ce point, pas du tout apprécié ce moment.

Verhaltene Nase, die am Gaumen durch ein ziemliches Feuerwerk abgelöst wird - allerdings bezogen auf die würzige Schärfe, weniger auf aromatische Komplexität. Der Alkohol ist dabei zwar erkennbar, primär entstammt die Schärfe m.E. aber aus einer pfeffrigen Würznote, eine deutliche Röstaromatik sowie Holzanklängen. Guter Rum, der mir aber zu feurig daherkommt und Abstriche bei den Frucht- und Süssnoten verzeichnen muss.
