Destilleret i Guyana i 2003, aftappet i DK i februar 2021. 53,7%. Der findes 161 flasker i alt.

God smag, mange smagsnuancer. En smule tør, men god.

S.B.S Guyana 2003 is a single barrel bottling with only 161 bottles. The rum was made in a French Savalle Column Still (SVL) in 2003. It looks colored, which is why it will likely be sweeter and more viscous than the other bottling from 2003.

Smell: The rum starts sweet and viscous with honey sweetness, caramel and coconut. A very rich smell that is rather sweet and incredibly inviting like a typical Enmore. The typical Enmore wood is there like walnut wood coated with honey.
I get a lot of ripe dried fruits like raisins, but also grapes, vanilla and melon. The rum also has a flowery aroma and almost seems to smell like tulips. There is a little liquorice, not excessive, but very nicely embedded.
A great, sweet smell that pulls me into its path.

Taste: It starts with caramel, sweet berries and coconut. A little tannins, dried fruits, honey, melon and vanilla are added. It becomes slightly spicy and, some tannins, honey and wood, pushes it further into the middle. Then it becomes very flowery and finally delivers candied fruits and berries of all kinds in the finish. Memories of slightly dried / fresh dates are awakened, but also of various berries.

Aftertaste: incredibly flowery, fruity, raspberries, wild berries

Conclusion: Beautiful and sweet rum with fantastic flavors integrated into a typical Enmore frame. I didn't expect that at all. If you like sweet and floral Demeraras, this is a fantastic rum for you. Unfortunately, it doesn't have any heavy aromas that could add more complexity.
I regret buying just one bottle at this point. Unfortunately, this bottling only consists of a few bottles, so I probably won't get any more.

Overall rating: 88 points

Aroma: Nasládle jemné, pomeranče, slabě také vanilkový cukr
Chuť: Bylinně travnatá, lehce kořeněná
Dozvuk: Bylinný, trochu vanilky a tóny hořkého dřeva
Sladkost: 0/3
Nejméně hořký z celé série a stejně jako 2001 se jedná o vcelku průměrný rum.
Edit 23.11.2021: Aroma: Výrazné pomeranče, štiplavá eukalyptová svěžest, vanilkový cukr
Chuť: Jemná, ovocná, lehce pikantní
Dozvuk: Jemně kořenitý, lehce vanilka a ovocné pecky. Středně dlouhý.
Po druhé ochutnávce zůstává vše při starém. 6+/10

I navzdory velmi vysokým cenám stojí S.B.S. Guyana 1990-2003 určitě za ochutnání. Jelikož se pořád "peru" s guyanským rumovým stylem, napoprvé mě žádný z rumů nijak extra neoslovil, hlavně kvůli všudypřítomné dřevité hořkosti. Po druhé a třetí ochutnávce jsem některé přehodnotil.

1. 1990 8-/10
2. 1994 7/10
3. 2003 6+/10
4. 2001 6/10

Thank You so much Rhum Attitude for providing a proper rum tasting during the 16th month of global lockdown. Tasting continued onwards with SBS Guyana Savalle 2003. Nice and sturdy bottle and label design. Light mahogany color. Floral notes mixed light woodiness. Surprisingly dry ending.

Ve vůni karamel, drevo. Chuť příjemne sladká ovocná. Ananas a banány. Závěr prijemny s náznakem pepře.
