Give. Me. Ester. The perfect Worthy Park fruit basket with the typical green apple aroma, banana, mango, a touch of vanilla, which gives the whole still a pleasant mild sweetness. This is what Jamaica tastes like.

My first WPE and I must say I like it quite a bit. Not soeine brutal ester clap like TECA or DOK, but still clearly noticeable. Lots of fruit, other flavors but rather restrained. So overall a bit one dimensional. Compared to other Worthy Parks still very interesting.

The first WP I've tasted that goes beyond the light ester notes and is more upper mid-range there. Delicious.

Solid young WPE - despite its young age, has already taken a good maturation. Funky, young, wild, the barrel is still present, lots of fruit, pear, fresh apple, citrus - good astringency, herbs on the finish! For the age he already has a lot to offer - expectations felt, no surprise, good distillate!

This is the bottle I would like to see from WP as a standard bottling.Nose: more intense aged grappa and a little Williams pear, strong alcoholPalate: here the rum shows a completely different series, sharply alcoholic and a lot of wood and spice are in the foregroundAftertone: here it becomes softer again, the aged grappa appears again, very long, spicy and woody aftertasteYes, the rum was stored only three years and you notice that especially on the palate: wild and impetuous, was perhaps not the optimal barrel selection, because the wood and barrel notes are dominant and do not really fit the fine fruitiness. Nevertheless, a good rum.

Solid WP with plenty of fruits and Jamaican funk. Much better than the WP Single Estate Reserve I tried in parallel.
