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

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.

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

Ein ehrlicher leicht fruchtiger unverfälschter Rum. Kräftig im Abgang aber ohne zu brennen. Prima.

A good rum with spicy and fruity notes. Banana, apple with oaky notes. Woody and spicy finish but not very long. Nothing special.

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.
