Much better than the 10 year old but still sort of lifeless. Thin. No body. No bite. There is some flavor, molasses and a little mocha which was nice. There is some complexity here. Some sultana and coffee notes in the background. One would expect that from a rum aged this long. This is pretty sweet. Finish is good and medium in length. Better on ice than neat. There is that solera aftertaste in the background which I am not a fan of. Bottom line is there are MANY rums of this age and younger which blow this away and cost less.

This one of the finess rum that I have tasted. It is so smooth that you never tast the alcahol in the drink.

Nice full flavour and aroma, not to sweet. Bottle is nice and heavy. It is a tie for me with Plantation Barbados XO 20th anniversary

The nose is round with toffee, vanilla, orange, fudge and cherry's. The palette is sweet with butterscotch, vanilla, a bit of chocolate, marcipan, orange peel and some nuttiness.

Barva je bohatá zlatá až jantarová s vanilkovým, karamelovým, švestkovým aroma. Chuť bych popsal jako sametově hladkou, komplexní, vanilka, karamel, melasa, dubové dřevo, bez příznaku surového alkoholu a závěr suchý, dlouhotrvající, charakteristické chutě setrvávají na středu jazyka.

Solid havy bottle, gives me impression the content will last forever ).
Nice deep amber color.
Right from the bottle bites with alcohol on nose, but became not bad and attractive after standing for a while.
Thick and smooth, without hint of alcohol on palate.
WoW effect at the first sip. Hint of sweetness, something authentic.
Long lasting after taste.
Highly recommended (specially during quarantine period) )

Now this was an enjoyable bottle of rum. A bit pricey but hey, you only live once.

A great balanced nose that is pleasant and a little sweet. A great taste that is neutral between sweet and alcohol. Very smooth with a great taste. A little tangy and not much heat, but a very long lasting aftertaste that reflects the initial taste. I had this neat and is a great sipper.

žádná vůně, chuť zpočátku sladkost, ovoce, nastupuje pikantní koření, konec takový divný, závěr koření
