Another wonderful bottling from Valinch & Mallet. Happy that I got my hands on 2 bottles. Remember to rest for 15-20 minutes to release all those wonderful flavours. 2021.12.10 Sitting in my recliner right now enjoying this wonderful rum. No wonder people like it, real funk and fruits from Jamaica. I have the entire series and the general quality level is very high.

Pas de grosse surprise, les solvants typiques de la Jamaïque s’offre au nez immédiatement. Mais la salade de fruits tropicaux fait très vite son apparition. Le nez est très élégant avec une touche de miel très gourmande. L’ensemble est très agréable avec des effluves de légères épices et de boisé. En bouche, c’est dans la trame du nez, très fruité, à nouveau sur les fruits tropicaux et la fraise. C’est très léger et équilibré avec un boisé tout en douceur. Les 56.8% sont parfaitement fondu. Belle longueur plus sur le café qui s’estompe agréablement au fil du temps.

unglaublich harmonischer easy Sipping long pond. seeeehr geil, da hätte ich mir gern ne Flasche gekauft...🤤 schöner Mix aus dunkler Schokolade, gebackener Banane mit Sesam, Espresso, Ingwer und Orangen+Grapefruitschale, etwas Mirabelle und Birne, Ahornsirup und gerösteten Pekannüssen. erst im Abgang kommt die typische gebackene Banane mit einer schönen frische von geröstetem Sesam und Minze dezent zur Geltung. brutal leckerer Stoff!⚡ gefällt mir noch ein gutes Stück besser wie der Velier vrw 12y 💯 für mich der beste VRW auf dem Markt.

L’odeur impressionnante avec un citron vert bien présent, et un coter amer en bouche qui m’a très perturbé ! Mais très bon rhum !

Peu d'esters avec un vieillissement assez important en Jamaïque.. Trop boisé et épicé pour ma part.. Même si ça doit plaire à bcp de monde.. Ça reste bon en bouche tout dz même
