Now this is some good stuff
Aroma - smooth with fruits, caramel and apple tones. Taste is also smooth with wood and grass, nicely rounded. Aftertaste could be a bit longer. 8,5 points.
This is delicious. Really, really delicious. Grassy, burny, little bit smokey, little brown sugar but real dry. I’m a big fan. It’s really, really nice.
I’m absolutely not getting liquorice like everyone else.
Oh, too much aniseed/liquorice at the start makes you think you're on the sambuca! Luckily it makes way to complex fresh cane juice flavours with a mocha, praline, dry woody finish. Expensive at £70 but you can taste the complexity and appreciate the craft. I'm being kind giving an 8 though. Starts badly, ends well.
The Depaz Rhum Hors d'Age XO is made from sugar cane instead of molasses. It is a blend of different rums that are between eight and ten years old. The sweetness of the sugar cane juice gives it a particularly mild and pleasant taste. Nosing revelas chocolate and liquorice in the foreground, followed by vanilla and hints of plums. Palate is complex, dry entry with a lot of spicy charred oak which meets fine vanilla notes and fruits. Finish has medium length, bittersweet notes with exotic fruits paired with caramel and oak notes. Real grade is 8,5.
