I like El Dorado rum but it's sweetened. So I'm very interested in this one. I expect something similar to the ElD15.
The nose is bright with white fruits and an impession of wine. Completly different for that what I expected. Diamond has sometimes wird casks (see my rating of 20y Diamond 1998), I think this was also one of that.
I get white fruits in the nose with citrus and herbs. On the palet I get almost the same. The start is weak or watery, the dilution doesn't work out. Maybe a whisky love can enjoy it, but I miss the intensive aromas like honey or papaya.
It should be older I think or it should have more abv.

A surprisingly well rounded, a bit oily but still soft.

Schönes helles Mahagoni im Glas.
Die Nase erkennt den typischen Demerara Duft sofort ! Dieses schwere, süssliche Tiefe, frisch gebackenes Brot mit Kakao und frisch gepflückten weissen Früchten, getunkt in Karamellcreme.
Im Gaumen erfreuen sich die Geschmacksknospen der 45 % Vol. Leckeres Vanillegebäck mit zarter Karamell Füllung, eine Fülle tropische Früchte auf einem getoastetem Holzteller. Ein genialer Tropfen mit Dem man gerne einige Stunden verbringt und jegliche Beschreibung überflüssig macht.
Im Abgang (um zu vervollständigen) kommt das frische Süssgebäck im den Vordergrund, umgarnt von Sahnekaramell Stangen, einige Gewürze als "Topping".
Ein Rum für Geniesser des ungeschminkten Guyana Rum. Achtung, auch wenn hier die Worte Süss gebraucht werden, dieser Rum ist nicht süss ! Also nichts für sweet El Dorado Lovers (ja, ja, auch Der ist lecker) :-)

Beautiful light mahogany in the glass.
The nose recognizes the typical Demerara scent immediately! This heavy, sweetish depth, freshly baked bread with cocoa and freshly picked white fruit, dipped in caramel cream.
On the palate, enjoy the taste buds of the 45% Vol. Delicious vanilla pastry with delicate caramel filling, a wealth of tropical fruit on a toasted wood plate. An ingenious drop with which one likes to spend some hours and makes any description superfluous.
In the finish (to complete) comes the fresh sweet biscuits in the foreground, surrounded by cream caramel poles, some spices as a "topping".
A rum for connoisseurs of unadorned Guyana rum. Attention, even if the words sweet are used here, this rum is not sweet! So nothing for sweet El Dorado Lovers (yes, yes, he is also delicious) :-)
