Dank seiner 48% sehr intensiv
Duftet fein nach warmen Kräutern mit etwas Vanille und leichter Esthernote.
Im Mund dann kräftig würzig und auf der Zunge dezent süss mit Fruchtigen Anklängen.

Reminiscent of an agricole rum in taste, this delectable Javanese rum is truly a great tipple. Light Golden in colour with grassy notes, a light fruity finish and some clear menthol aromas, this is a remarkable rum to sip as well as to use in rum forward cocktails. The fermented red rice ads a layer of funk to the proceedings too. Top stuff!

Helles Honiggelb im Glas.
In der Nase, ganz speziell anders, erdig nach Wurzeln und nassem Laub durchmischt mit etwas Frucht und Klebstoff.
Im Gaumen sehr elegant und würzig, weisser Pfeffer auf Lebkuchen, Orangen mit Nelken gespickt, schönes angenehmes Mundgefühl.
Im Abgang dezent süss mit Beeren und etwas Salz.
In einer Blindverkostung nicht als Rum zu erkennen aber eine schöne Abwechslung in der Rumlandschaft.
Für Geniesser und Entdecker.

Bright honey yellow in the glass.
In the nose, especially different, earthy mixed with roots and wet leaves with some fruit and glue.
Very elegant and spicy on the palate, white pepper on gingerbread, oranges peppered with cloves, nice and pleasant mouthfeel.
In the finish discreetly sweet with berries and a little salt.
In a blind tasting not to recognize as rum but a nice change in the rum landscape.
For connoisseurs and explorers.

It is a lot of arrack and vanilla in this, could have been a little bit more body but a positive surprise.

20ml uit een advent kalender. Bij het maken van Arak wordt rode rijst gebruikt bij het fermenteren. Levert in ieder geval een pittige rum op, kruidig, pepermunt, alcohol proef je wel (48%)
Wel lekker eigenlijk.

L'arrack est une boisson alcoolisée issue, notamment, de la fermentation de la canne à sucre.
Dans la cas qui nous occupe la mélasse utilisée est produite sur l'île de Java, ensuite, l'arrack vieillit 8 ans aux Pays-Bas. Notons également que du riz rouge fermenté est ajouté à la préparation lors du processus.
Une question, peut-on considérer l'arrack comme un rhum ?

Au nez, il embaume la pièce malgré sa douceur, je perçois des notes plus végétales ainsi que des notes d'agrumes,
En bouche, c'est assez sec et puissant (48%), sur des notes boisées, épicées,
La finale est longue, avec de discrètes notes fruitées :)

Voilà un chouette produit, bien équilibré,

Note : 77,5/100
Merci à 1423 Wolrd Class Spirits et son calendrier de l'Avent :)

A little smokey on the nose with fresh cut lemongrass. I’ve encountered this character before from other indonesian rum. It’s a little dry and floral on the palate with black pepper and citrus. Decently balanced with a peppery finish. Though it's not paticularly rounded or complex it will do in a pinch.

Více alkoholu než bývá u rumu obvyklé a na chuti se to projeví. Ochutnáním nic nezkazíte, na nákup lahve to ale nevidím.

Entry is dry and it gets earthy and mushroom like.
