Erinnert durch die intensiven Birnen- und Apfel-Noten an einen Calvados. Der Alkohol ist zunächst nicht ideal eingebunden - nach 30 Minuten atmen entwickelt sich aber ein schöner, fruchtiger Rum, der Spaß macht.

Gigantische Nase nach Klebstoff, Birne, Jasmintee, viel Zitrusfrüchte und Mandelgebäck! Geschmacklich deutlich floraler & trockener wie der Finespirits beenleigh 2015. Dennoch schöne Noten von Mandel Gebäck und Mandarinenschale, Williamabirne, etwas Klebstoff & Honig aber auch mehr Holz. Gefällt mir ist aber nicht so süffig und easy sipping. Aber dennoch unglaublich komplex und spannend. #needmorebeenleigh 🪃🇦🇺🐨🦘🌏

VSGB 😘 Nase: nachdem die erste alkoholische Schärfe verflogen ist, kommt dieser Beenleigh gewohnt frisch und fruchtig rüber. Vordergründig finde ich saftige Birne und grüner Apfel, vielleicht auch etwas Traube. Dazu frische Limette. Dahinter eine volle Vanille-Note. Ein lieblicher, floraler Rosenduft folgt und hinten leicht Vollmilch Schokolade. Gaumen: auch fruchtig, aber deutlich herber als in der Nase. Kurz kommt die Birne, dann überwiegen bittere Grapefruit und Zitronenschale. Ich finde einen Hauch Nelke und etwas metallisches Richtung Kupfer. Hinten etwas schwarzer Tee. Im Abgang leicht bitter und dann wieder die, für mich typische, Beenleigh-Birne. Solider Tropfen, für mich etwas zu herb am Gaumen.

This is a wonderful rum especially thinking about the price tag. I like that the spices are present from nose to finish. The spices are topped by fruits and light wood notes. There is a light floral and roasted not in there as well. It was sold out pretty fast and I understand why.

Kaktussaft und Birnensaft. Apfel und Birne in Nase und Geschmack. Könnte auch als Obstler durchgehen. Nicht mein Fall.

verkostet zusammen mit dem Velier Beenleigh 2006. Der 2006er gefällt mir noch ein wenig besser. An der Nase ist der 2015er deutlich blumiger, der 2006er kommt dagegen mit Noten, die mich an Calvados erinnern.

Zweite Verkostung: Unverändert gut, heute ist mir in Geruch und Geschmack eine Ähnlichkeit mit im Eichenfass gereiftem Grappa aufgefallen. Alkohol ist mäßig gut eingebunden. ----- In der Nase schön fruchtig und intensiv. Der erste Eindruck im Mund ist Obstler (Williamsbirne), aber dann kommen die Zitrusfrüchte und dann die Würze. Die Würze setzt sich im Abgang fort und wird von Fassaromen ergänzt. Die Fassaromen bleiben sehr lange und dann blitzt nochmal Frucht (Birne) auf. Sehr interessanter Rum mit schönen fließenden Übergängen. Gefällt mir!

Très surprenant. Un nez étrange, collé très présente, un peu d’épices, de bois et quelques fruits. En bouche c’est une explosion floral par contre. Superbe, avec une puissance, un peu de poivre et de fruit qui souligne ça. Une rose très présente et qui ne vous lâche plus. Belle finale, longue, puissante et toujours avec ces notes de roses.

Initially pretty unexciting, but leave it to breathe for 30 minutes and the boring calvados aromas subside and get replaced by beautiful flowery notes and a unique popcorn sweetness. The taste is very black tea forward. Sparse on fruits, but strong on flowers and vanilla. All the way to a minty finish with a light anise undertone. Smell the glass after finishing to find renewed popcorn and spice, as well as a surprising cola note.

Un rhum excessivement floral. Pas mon truc.

In der Nase sehr fruchtig (Apfel, und vor allem Birne) und blumig. Danach etwas Chemie und dann Gewürze (Lakritz und vor allem Wacholder). Gefällt mir sehr gut. Im Mund Chemie und Birne. Knusprig, Alkohol gut integriert. Schöne Nase, interessant diese Dominanz der Birne. Am Gaumen will er dann nur mittelmäßig gefallen.

A somewhat untamed beast. A bit closed in the mid pallet. A drop of water helps. Sandy/mineral. Some currants/green grapes. Some burn. Obviously young rum although desert(?) aged. It's all good but it lacks something. Too much hidden flavours, could use some spunk/funkiness. I need to try this a few more times to get to the core of this.
