„Unusually much coconut for a NY1994. Nice power and still quaffable. Pleases me very well!“

„This one is really good and despite the age the wood is not overly dominant. Fruity with spices, lovely caramel and leather and some chocolate in the background. Should have bought a few bottles when still available 😊“

„Unlike other bottlings of the New Yarmouth 1994, the variant from SBS is a) diluted and b) has clearly pronounced coconut aromas. The rum is extremely creamy and pleasing for 57% by volume. The prominent coconut note makes it interesting, though I miss the ester notes that are so typical of Jamaica. This bottling seems more like a funky rum from Guyana than a smooth Jamaican. It is very smooth.“

„Super quaffable. I like the 94 NY. The SBS has more coco like the VM, the RA is more intense and overall for me still a bit better than SBS and VM.“

„Un superbe New Yarmouth qui se veut riche, délicat et savoureux. Le nez se pare de fruits exotiques (banane, noix de coco) avant de laisser place à quelques notes de solvants et de colle très légères. Le boisé est fin, fondu dans le décor dont les épices, le chocolat et les noisettes grillées font office d’ornements. Un nez qui laisse songeur. L’attaque en bouche est exquise. La noix de coco ouvre le bal, puis viennent des notes boisées et épicées intenses, chaleureuses et pimentées, avant qu’une gourmandise extrême n’envahisse le palais : le chocolat, l’amande, le toffee, le massepain, les notes de miel et de crème au caramel confèrent une douceur insoupçonnée à ce profil qui se veut intense caractériel de prime abord. La finale est très longue, axée sur cette même gourmandise qui fait son succès : chocolat, noisette, crème au caramel, café, réglisse, vanille et des notes légèrement toastées font le bonheur des papilles. Un rhum au plaisir interminable, qui même avec quelques degrés de moins que les autres profils, laisse rêveur.“

„Dadar gulung in liquid. caramelized coconut chips with baked banana in perfection. extremely tasty and different from many other 94s new Yarmouths! mega intense and very tasty, but also a bit charred and barrel-heavy, bitter in the finish. But overall definitely the sweetest and fruitiest of them all!“

„Excellent. Very greedy, very pastry-like, no fruity funk. Alcohol very well integrated. Very round and well patinated by the years without being marked by eucalyptus and menthol. Just great.“

„At first it seems a bit strange that the expected ester notes don't want to come up at all, but once you get into it, you get a really good, round rum here.“

„The alcohol is better integrated compared to the 94 Rum Artesanal, but the finish is a bit flat and short.“

„A very great Jamaican. Before tasting and smelling necessarily let the glass stand a few minutes. It is gentle and not too intrusive but still full of character and length. Melting, creamy after coconut.“
