Yes, your have read it already, an 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. 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.
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, it reminds me of a panama rum. But the flavors are developing in your mouth. Uhh, 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 9.5, great complexity.

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, paper, star fruit, molasses, citrus, some plants
Middle: orange peels, spice, herbs, bitter plants, medicine
Finish (long): citrus, oak, some earth, melon and star fruit (some other tropical fruits also), some smoke and medicine - astringent mouth feel
Aftertaste: star fruit, orange (beatiful fruity) and floral aftertaste, leather, peppermint - very tasty

Sweetness: 1.5/5
Spice: 3/5
Fruits: 2.5/5
Mildness: 3/5
Intensity: 4/5
Complexity: 4/5
Value (58€): 4/5
