Truly a fantastic choice
If you haven’t tried Jamaican rum before and you want to learn more about what Jamaican rum can offer. Then you should try this one. It is a clear example of what Jamaica can do. High esters, great Jamaican classic taste. Nose is not as strong as I thought it would be, to begin with, but give it some time and it will show itself. Really good choice If you like Plantation and Jamaica. Recommended!

Yes, your have read it already, a 16y aged Jamaica rum from Plantation without any additives. And with any information you wanna know, directly from the bottler. And also from a long fermentation and pot still distillation for just 58€. I hope this is not the last one time edition :)
Great, we appreciate it.
The nose is intensive, you can cleary recognize Clarendon/Monymusk. The first flavors are the plants, the herbs with some floral notes and honey in the background. But there is also a dominant anise note with oranges. This is a great nose and very intensive, for just 58€? I must be dreaming.
The taste is a little bit thin at the beginning, but with anise. The flavors are developing in your mouth.
I would say the taste is dominated by anise, orage and orange peels. The middle an the finish are very nice. Yes, this is great stuff. What I need to give it a 10 is a little bit reacher initial taste and more fruits. But the rest is very good and complex, I would rate it with 88 points.
Nose: orange peels, anise, plants/herbs, floral notes, honey, caramel in the background, melon, citrus, star fruit, white oak, some gum and smoke (in a whisky glas - don't got this aromas in my thumbler)
Taste initial: anise, tannins, wood, star fruit, citrus, some plants
Middle: orange, orange peels, spice, herbs, bitter plants, medicine, anise
Finish (long): citrus, oak, some earth, melon and star fruit (some other tropical fruits also), some smoke and medicine - astringent mouth feel, anise
Aftertaste: star fruit, orange (beatiful fruity) and floral aftertaste, leather, peppermint, anise - very tasty
Value (58€): 4/5
