“RumX-Adventskalender, 9.12., blind, Erster Eindruck: salzig, Honig, BlackRock? Mitte 50%. Aber wenn man ihm Zeit lässt wird er immer besser und geht dann ganz klar in Richtung Uitvlugt. Nase: sehr fein, zuerst etwas flach, bekommt mit der Zeit eine schöne Tiefe, spricht für höheres Alter. Wirkt salzig und hat eine schöne Honig-Note, leicht Essig, etwas kräuterig und harzig mit einer speziellen Graphit-Note. An Frucht folgte ich Ananas und Birne. Gefällt mir schon. Gaumen: wieder salzig mit Jod, etwas gedämpft und wieder dieser ganz eigene Graphit-Geschmack, etwas Birne und Mandarine und wieder leicht harzig. Hinten kräuterig mit Kamille und ein Hauch Minze. Auch am Gaumen wird er mit der Zeit immer tiefer und komplexer… Nicht der beste Uit, aber nicht schlecht…”

“Kräuter kommen direkt beim Einschenken intensiv an. Dazu kräftige Eiche, Olivenwasser und Pfirsich. Im Geschmack kommt in Ahornsirup eingelegte Litchi dazu. Erst im Abgang entfaltet sich dann die Bitterkeit der Eiche die ich so mag. Für eine bessere Bewertung müsste der Alkohol idealer eingebunden sein der besonders in der Länge des Abgangs recht präsent wird und mit einer Kräuterschärfe unterfüttert wird.”
