Woody, ashy, pop corn with light coating of caramel with fresh stone fruits aroma.
Taste slightly similar to what I got on nose. Smokey, ashy and sweet pineapple with a tiny bite (sour bite which usually found in unripe pineapple).
Soft tannin from aging which stick on to gum which I enjoy pretty much. Dry and long finishing with aroma of banana lingering.

Enjoyed this one. A nice nose with a bit of hay, citrus and sugarcane. Sipping the rum I pick up slightly grassy, sweet peaches fading into a complex woody finish with light notes of nutmeg. Has a little bite, but with decent balance.

A bit to sharp for my taste but the fruit tastes on the middel was a pleasant surprise to the sharp start. Very slight smell. Definitely interesting.

Smell fruity and smokey. Taste pleasant fruity full with berries. Fresh but a bit Smokey. It doesn’t bite too much and I like the light aftertaste. From “24 rums collection” with S.

Lukten er litt ubestemmelig men med et hint av sitrus. I smaken kan den umiddelbart kjennes noe stram, men den forsvinner overraskende fort. Litt ettersmak av krydder på tunga.

Aroma is nice and fruity. Taste is sweet with peach and exotic fruit tones. but no added sugar. Aftertaste is not long but pleasant.

Další kúsok z rumového kalendára. Pekná medeno zlatá farba, v pohári sa tento 8 ročný rum z Maurícia vyznačuje príjemnou tradičnou rumovou arómou prevažne po sladkej vanilke a orieškoch. Podľa môjho názoru má výrazný zrecí potenciál. Chuť zaostáva za aromatickým vnemom. Ako 8 ročný rum - taký priemer, ale inak nič extra. Starší New Grove bude isto vyspelejší hlavne v chuti.

Reminds on medicine, bit smoke and herbs, harsh alcohol, so not according to my taste.

J ai goûté ce rhum dans un calendrier de Noël. Je débute dans la dégustation de rhum.

Schönes Bernstein im Glas.
In der Nase der Duft von einem Karamell Bonbon das auf Eichenholz klebt und langsam an der Sonne zerläuft. Auch die Mauritius typischen medizinal-pflanzlichen Düfte sind präsent.
In Gaumen eher etwas sperrig und wild im positivem Sinn. Holz, Harz, Mango, Pflaume buhlen um die Gunst der Geschmacksknospen.
Im Abgang lang anhaltend, Kräuter und Gewürze mit einer Priese Salz.
Ein "purer" Rum mit Ecken und Kanten für Entdecker und Liebhaber dieser Machart . Leider nichts für Süss-Rum Geniesser. 7+

Beautiful amber in a glass.
In the nose the scent of a caramel candy that sticks to oak wood and slowly melts in the sun. Also the Mauritius typical medicinal herbal scents are present.
In the palate rather bulky and wild in a positive sense. Wood, resin, mango, plum vie for the favour of the taste buds.
Long finish, herbs and spices with a pinch of salt.
A "pure" rum with corners and edges for discoverers and lovers of this style. Unfortunately nothing for sweet rum connoisseurs. 7+

A lot of oak which is nice, but not a lot of depth and still a bit of kick from the alcohol

Smells like there is lots going on, including some orange peel, but unfortunately there isn’t a lot of taste of anything.

Although I am from the cold north of Denmark, then my family still have quite a history with Mauritius, so it is always special for me, when a bottle from this island nation hits the table.

Nose: Cinnamon, nutmeg and a small whiff of oak
Taste: A very light tasting rum with flavors of dry fruits and subtle funky quality
Overall: There is a lot going on with this rum and it packs a lot of flavour. Complex, but still friendly to more inexperience rum lovers.

Nose reminds me of apples, the actual flavor is very... unique. Seems like they mixed beer or something into this, probably a result of whisky barrel aging.

Duft af frugt og især af syltetøj. Faktisk ret meget, hvilket giver en forventning af noget sødt, men smagen lever ikke op til duften. Smag af fad, lidt tobak og lidt lakrids. Er lidt sprittet, som giver en tørhed i munden, der gør at man bliver tørstig. Har smagt rom, der var meget dårligere, men bestemt også bedre. (3. December 2018)

Very spicy and harsh on the tongue, wax on the nose. Definitelly not my kind of a rum.

Posted over 1 year ago by Loxias from Czech Republic with 154 ratings

8 years aged rum from Mauritius with no additives.
Aroma with dried fruit, honey and hints of tobbaco.
Flavour is rich with some refreshing tones in the middle. There are hints of tee, cinnamon and bit of smoke.
Long mild, sweet and woody aftertaste.

Doften är ok lite fruktig, kryddig i smaken, torr i avslutet. Saknar fyllighet. Ok.

Vune je velmi zajimava neco jako fiky a horici ovocne drevo. Chut je podstatne drsnejsi, dub a kour. Dozvuk je dlouhy a prijemne hrejivy

Posted over 1 year ago by Daniel Lindén from Sweden with 60 ratings

Färgen mörk gul bärnsten kanske. Fruktig arom med inslag av russin helt klart. Kryddig smak med rökinslag men inte på värsta viset. Spritig eftersmak med inslag av anis/lakrits. Nja.

Tried the New Grove Old Tradition 8y rum for the first and very last time. Such a nasty smell is followed by a rubber infused burn. Contemplating if this would be a 1 or 2, but then again this is not amongst the worst, so 2 it is. Bottle design is ok, label looks cheap. Color is semi dark but the rubbery smell cannot be hidden away.

Nothing for me, I expect more from this rum. Average taste

Posted at The Rum Bar KL almost 3 years ago by Andy Tee from Malaysia with 148 ratings

N- Bright and uplifted citrus peels, sour smokes with lots of orange with zings of pineapple and obvious vanilla coating. Aromatic wood with generous quality sweet fruits. Clean, pleasant and delicious, nice as it is, no nonsense with those hidden dark spice, caramel and so on. Nice as it is. (22/25)

P- The smokes carry on from the aroma, with first sip of ashy earths to balanced things out, followed by charming icing sugar coated strawberry, fat creamy vanilla come thru, as well whiff of unwelcome usual caramel lurking in the back. (21/25)

F- Medium, crisp and dry. Creme anglaise, minted aromatic compote of banana, sweet mango and pineapple breakfast fruit salad drizzle with honey? Perhaps~ (21/25)

Balanced:- Surely for those with sweet tooth, with timely dryness emerge for a clean finish. (21/25)

Weighted Rate:- 85pt

Very dry, nothintg special. A little bit of sweetness would suit me more.
