Nice bronze color. The first nose is on strawberry sweets, pineapple or brewer's yeast. Candied fruits, plums, nuts and vanilla are also founded and the third nose is on ripe pineapple. In the mouth, alcohol is super-present but well integrated. It sticks well to the palate. Very pastry and fruity. Beautiful length in mouth. Nice one.
I obtained a free sample from the French shop rhumattitude.com. I first tried it straight, and it overpowered me. Too much flavour per cl! I then diluted it down with water to approximately 39% vol. And wow it tasted really good. Reminded me a lot of the Appleton 12 yo. Rare Blend. It's a delicious aroma that's hard to describe. I (native German speaker) would have called it chewy, but my dictionary tells me that's not the right word. But I wouldn't compare it to toffee either, it's a flavour quite on its own, sweetish and candy-like, but not like anything else I now.
A Mt. Gay distillery 10 yr old rum , bottled at a very strong 59%. 100% pot still , single blend rum. Nice spicey nose with stone fruits i.e plums..
Very hot in the mouth but not uncomfortably.. notes of plums , oak, spices and thankfully not cherries like the 2009 version !
Strangely not much burn in the throat ? Very well made but a bit of a struggle to keep sipping neat.
Great for the style. Tons of oak and spice up front, followed by some vanilla and caramel. Not overwhelming with the alcohol, but helps with some dilution. Amazing sipper
This is very strong (59) so if you are not into strong rum you should avoid this one. Otherwise a true Barbadian rum, lot of exotic fruit, almonds, vanilla. Very nice.
rhum au nez incomparable complexe on y revient sans cesse
la bouche est puissante tres complexe egalement longueur en bouche forte
un de mes préférés +++ faites des réserves
Ok pour le côté historique de ce rhum mais je le trouve assez déséquilibré, les arômes me rappellent le travail à l’usine : produits chimiques et graisses.
