Duften er super god, men smagen er meget skuffende bestemt ikke en rum jeg ville købe, hvis jeg havde prøve smagt den først...

This rum has a lot of depth for the value.

Nose: Banana, butterscotch, toasted caramel, banana cream.

Mouth: feels and tastes delicious. If you know to sip properly you can have as much or as little bite as you want. This creates a much longer or shorter finish.

It's Woody, Sweet, Vegatal, Caramel, creamy, some nice dry moments that still leave this pleasant flavor lightly pulsating down the back of your throat.

Overall great experience.

One of, if not the best I have tried. Great for sipping and will not break the bank.

I normally don't spend this much on a bottle. I was pleasantly surprised!!! It was smooth and flavorful. It didn't taste like any sugar was added. I would definitely buy again!

I like this rum for sipping neat, but it is very smooth and sweet. I would be surprised if there was not added sugar. That being said, I don't mind the sweetness, it makes it more palatable and quite refreshing. You can taste a bit of barrel and smoke, but I would not be surprised to find out that not all the rum in this bottle is 23 years old.

When I had my first sip I thought I had peeled a banana! The banana fragrance hit me immediately followed by caramel and vanilla. A bit of coffee comes through a little later. This is an exceptional rum and for a rum over 18 years it's tough to beat....especially for the price....around $55. This rum actually opens up twenty minutes after pouring. I'm giving this a 9 ..., although if looking at it solely from a price point...it would be a 10. Why not a 10? Because the El Dorado 21 is a true 10 and I cannot give this the same perfect score. Nevertheless it's outstanding.

molasses. dry!
i smell carmaell, toffee and much vanilla! spicy notes of pepper and ginger!
i taste vanilla, some coffee, some caramell and cherry and marzipan. maybe some tobacco elements. smooth and silk. full body, supersoft.
8/10 - sutract 5 points if sweet rum is heaven!
in the end you´ll get a dry rum with bold notes and a soft, creamy body. for me its too soft and faceless. i prefer the 18y.

I haven't tried much higher end stuff, probably 20 different ones including the K&S 12, so far this is my absolute favorite with the 12 being #2. This Rum has by far the heaviest carmel tones of any rum I have tried.

Price is weighed lightly in my rating. I paid $50 for a 750ml bottle

Sehr mild, weich und leicht, nicht aufdringlich. Am Anfang deutlich frisches Aroma, Orangenduft, dann leichte Schärfe, nicht zu süß. Etwas bittere Note, hat dadurch eigenen Charakter. Kein Mainstream-Rum.

This is the smoothest and most refreshing Rum I have had in a long time
No bit and a great vanilla finish
