- vůně velmi příjemná, smršť koření a dřeva
- v chuti překvapí zpočátku nástup nasladlostí, v zápětí se ozve 63,8% v kombinaci se spoustou příjemného koření a bylinek, kardamon, pepř, máta...
Závěr je extra dlouhý, skvělý rum!

This bottling by Compagnie des Indes comes from Trinidad by TDL and was produced in 2003 in column style. After 16 years, the rum was bottled as a single cask with a cask strength of 63.8% alcohol without additives or filtration in 283 70cl bottles. It is an exclusive bottling for the German market.

The nose is amazingly medicinal. A lot of iodine is reminiscent of a hospital stay. Add menthol, mint and a nice spice with vanilla. The nose is floral and somewhat peculiar. My first impression was skeptical. On the palate, the rum then hits like a grenade. The alcohol is very well integrated. I get a lot of mint, tobacco and spice. Menthol and burnt sugar. The rum shows a nice complexity and the mint is on point. Intense but not too intense. The rum becomes more woody with roasted aromas. The finish becomes more medicinal again with mint and more barrel notes.

An exciting TDL, although not the best. The nose is special, but over time I like it better and better. On the palate, the rum is fully convincing. Great mint, barrel influence, and medicinal notes add up to a nice complexity. The alcohol does what it's supposed to. I like it very much.

Es ist eine exklusive Abfüllung für den deutschen Markt.

Die Nase ist erstaunlich medizinisch. Viel Jod erinnert an einen Krankenhaus Aufenthalt. Dazu Menthol, Minze und eine schöne Würze mit Vanille. Die Nase ist floral und etwas Eigen. Hier war mein erster Eindruck erstmal skeptisch. Am Gaumen schlägt der Rum dann ein wie eine Granate. Der Alkohol ist sehr gut eingebunden. Ich bekomme viel Minze, Tabak und Würze. Menthol und gebrannten Zucker. Der Rum zeigt eine schöne Komplexität und die Minze ist auf dem Punkt. Intensiv aber nicht zu intensiv. Der Rum wird holziger mit Röstaromen. Der Abgang wird wieder medizinischer mit Minze und mehr Fassnoten.

Ein spannender TDL, wenn auch nicht der Beste. Die Nase ist speziell aber kt der Zeit gefällt sie mir immer besser. Am Gaumen überzeugt der Rum voll. Tolle Minze, Fasseinfluss und medizinische Noten ergeben eine schöne Komplexität. Der Alkohol macht was er soll. Gefällt mir sehr gut.

Vůně, mírně ovocná a technická.
O něco málo horší ve srovnání s jeho o dva roky starším bráškou ze stejné distilerie.
V chuti hodně technický s poměrně dlouhým závěrem.

Abv: 63,8
Age: 16
Single cask TRDG14, 283 bottles

Medical nose with vanilla first, his rum needs time in the glas. After 15min it opens up.
The nose is lightly sweet, bright with some medical notes, white oak, grains, vanilla, grasy notes, dry fruits and pepper. I expected much more dirty flavors, like in the 19y TDL from rum Artesanal. But I got just some leather. This don't meet my expectations, after the 19y Artesanal I'm a little bit disappointed.

The taste starts with some sweetness and medical notes with grains, the alcohol is rising and tingels in my mouth. Then I got wood, tannins and vanilla. As the rum became warm, some caramel comes on my palet and again, vanilla, the tannins from the wood, some earth and some grains. At the end I get grasy and peppery notes.
The finish starts with spice and tannins, white oak, herbs, vanilla and prune. I'm not excited, this was again behind my expectations.
The aftertaste is not very intensive. There is some mint, also some leather that I was missing in the body, some tannins and dry fruits after some time.

This rum is strong, the alcohol is tingeling all the time in my mouth (must be continental aging). I can enjoy it, but it's not a great rum for me. This cask was not the best one and behind my expectations for a 16y old TDL.
It's not great and not bad, therefore I would rate it with 77 points.

Nose: grains, medical note, vanilla, dry fruits, grasy notes, white oak, wild leather, pepper
Initial taste: some light sweetness, grains, medicine, dry fruit, wood, tannins, vanilla
Middle: some caramel, vanilla, tannins, some earth, grains, pepper
Finish: spice, tannins, white oak, herbs, vanilla, prune
Aftertaste: some mint, some leather, some tannins, dry fruits

Sweetness: 1.5/5
Fruits: 1.5/5
Spice: 4/5
Mildness: 1.5/5
Complexity: 3.5/5
Value 127€: 2/5
Experience level: expert (quite strong alcohol influence, not easy to enjoy)

It’s a very high alcohol rate Rum, 63.5%, but it’s probably the smoothest full proof I’ve ever tried. The alcohol kick in typical of this kind or product is still there: you have to drink it slowly and in very small sips. The first note is the warm feeling of the alcohol evaporating in your mouth, which is then carrying over all the flavours: a caramel note, vanilla, a full note tropical fruit, in particular mango, and a final fresh note (mint?). This final freshness is almost impossible to find in this kind of product and it’s one of the reasons I gave it a high rating. Probably one of the best full proof I’ve ever tried
