„Crass number. Blind I would have probably never thought that should be a Guyana rum! Rather a grand arome savanna or le galion with PX finish due to the almost artificial fruitiness after strawberry, cream candy, hubba bubba and laughing gum. In addition, there is a surprisingly intense sweet and light acetic acid, as well as light herbal notes and in the finish minimally bitter, sour and astringent and at the same time syrupy sweet.... Very very unusual...The acetic acid takes some getting used to and definitely not for every day.... And also the sweetness does not seem natural to me...Where these for Guyana untypical notes come from is really a mystery to me and I have never experienced so.For this I would like to get more information, because from Guyana is here almost no trace, at most in the finish then a bit...🤷🏼‍♂️“

„A fruity - sweet rum with a slight acidity reminiscent of vinegar. There are still herbs and various spices and a bitterness. The alcohol I felt only moderately well integrated. Nevertheless, an interesting rum.“

„A Savalle Still but quite different from SWR, ICBU or AN. Artificial, sweet fruit flavors dominate here - I love it! In the nose HubbaBubba strawberry, fermented fruit and caramel candy. Only in the background the dark spiciness one would otherwise expect. In the mouth continues to be very fruity with an estery acidity, followed by allspice and other spices and after just before the finish a slight herbal note. The finish is unfortunately a bit short - here the wood makes itself felt with a slight bitterness.“

„Un rhum avec un nez de caramel essayant de masquer un côté médicamenteux, de bois de santal et de fraise ! La bouche donne la même impression, un fond pas très harmonieux masqué par le caramel. A regoûter, peut-être que l’oxydation peut le rendre meilleur. Le verre vide laisse apparaître des arômes fruités intéressants. Merci Rodolphe pour l’échantillon.“


Caramelized Sandalwood Vinegar

„Un Diamond qui développe d’abord au nez une facette florale et fraîche sur les herbes aromatiques, avant de laisser place à un fruité qui évolue dans le verre (fruits secs puis fruits rouges) et qui se mélange aux épices, au boisé, aux noix et au cuir. Il y a des notes de caramel et de guimauve comme chauffée sur un feu de camp. Un profil olfactif sensuel. L’attaque en bouche est aux antipodes du nez. L’alcool n’est pas très bien intégré, on ressent un picotement au palais, avec des notes de sherry et de cerise très forte. Paradoxalement à cette agressivité, il y a toujours ce côté sucré et caramélisé en bouche. Les épices et les notes sombres relèvent un peu le niveau, sans pour autant créer l’exploit. La finale est courte, sèche, épicée et sombre. Le boisé épicé, le chocolat noir et le cuir forment l’amertume qui persiste dans l’arrière-bouche. Les fruits sont complètement effacés ici. Un Diamond qui nous laisse sur notre faim, contrasté au possible avec un nez doux et une bouche tendue, puis une finale trop courte.“

„Very oaky and heavy on the red fruits. Pretty closed at first. Needs time. Port. Some peach. Some freshness. Cool juice. Can't put my finger on all the layers yet, but it's nice but not really balanced. No really Guyana either. Edit: Readin' the other reviews now and I'm not the only one finding this hard to "read" :D“

„It's good but rather dispensable. The nose is not very well mastered (too much vinegar and new wood). The palate is better, combining cherry, wood, grass and caramel. It's not very complex, but the palate is rather balanced. The finish is moderately long, with pepper and oak. It could have been more successful, but it's still fun to drink.“

„Unfortunately, I could not get much out of this Diamond. It almost seems a bit sweetened. The alcohol is not well integrated. Unfortunately, not my case.“

„I expected a little more from this SVL. It has a light but unpleasant acidity to it and the alcohol isn’t very well integrated. There’s also something a little stingy which I can’t quite make out in the nose.“

„Nose was not as pungent as I was expecting, flavour was there but didn’t have a distinct personality which I was hoping for. Alcohol plays in your mouth, enjoyable and one I’m happy to go back for more but there are better examples out there.“
