The year is almost over and i was waiting for your selection for the best rums of the year 2022. So i guess i do the start and hope to see some of your choices.

My problem this year is, that i haven't even tasted all the rums from 2022 i have at home, because i have the samples but not enough time. In the last months i tried to kill some old bottles. That was a lot of work.

But i will try my list anyway: Here are my top rums 2022:

1. Rum Artesanal Enmore 1991 31y KFM - Just love it. Even more than the REV 1994. Love the mint note and you can taste the age. Just great.

2. Nobilis No. 27 TDL 2001 - Very great TDL. One of the best I had so far. Great mix of mint, tobacco and smoke.

3. Rum Artesanal Bellevue SFGB 1998 - Not your tipical Bellevue. But the citrus nose is just great.

4. Saint James Les Empheres No. 1 - A perfectly stored old Agricole.

5. The Rum Cask Hampden DOK 2009 13y - Haven't reviewed this one. Spoiler: Best DOK i tried so far!!!

6. The Duchess La Reunion 2003 - What a Powerhouse of an old Agricole. Love it but have to taste it more.

7. El Ron del Artesano Priorat Cask 24y - Just again just the smoothes rum out there. You will find no better Panama Rum. Period!!!

8. SBS Guyana SWR 2001 - Very dark and dry rum.

9. Rum Artesanal Trinidad Ten Cane 2008 - If you like Cherrys. This is your place to be. Great fruity rum.

10. Depaz Rumclub Privat Selection - Great fresh complex Agricole.

There are still many i have not tasted yet, like the Rumclub Navy Rum or Hampden DOK. My personal highlight was to taste the Velier Caronie "The Last". Not so much better than my Bristols, but the Nose is just the best out there.

Let's see what 2023 brings to the rum world. Like Pot Style Panama Rum. And hopfully some new rockly style bottling. Happy new year to all of you!!!!
