This rum was reduced from 61% to 57% because it supposedly had the best aroma development at this strength.

Smell: A well-known Jamaica smell pours into my nose. It is caramel-like and sweet with a lot of leather, orange zest and dried fruits. Seems very flowery to me and is very reminiscent of EMB 2010 from Velier. Old wood with tannins and vanilla is also present. It's a bit sharp and stings in the nose. Earthy barrel aromas can be discovered deeper in the glass.

Taste: The rum starts off sweetly with caramel, the dried fruits and orange zest. It increases in spice very quickly and then delivers the heavy aromas such as leather, wood, barrel aromas. It also develops some tannins and tingles a bit on the tongue. Vanilla is added to the wood with the spiciness and the orange zests are rising. The finish is sharp with wood, tannins and orange zests. Towards the back, the dried fruits are very present and some spices such as cloves appear. The leather is of course also included.

Aftertaste: orange zest, wood, leather, vanilla, mint

Conclusion: A rum that comes very close to Monymusk. In a blind tasting, I would have put it in this corner as well. It has no particular unique character, the distillery character is not recognizable to me. I like the profile and its ripe flavors. A great rum for me, but with the profile I would choose the cheaper alternatives.

Aroma: Vanilka, mandle, banány, kokos. Velmi připomíná FQ. Výrazná a hebká vůně.
Chuť: Ostrá, lehce kořenitá, dřevitá a šťavnatě ovocná.
Dozvuk: Hořká dřevitost, stopa kokosu, příjemně doznívající ovoce (třešně, švestky). Velmi dlouhý.
Sladkost: 0/3
Ochutnán vzorek
Těžko věřit, že se jedná o Jamajku. Připomíná spíše ročníkovku FQ s výraznou ovocnou stopou. Moc dobrý rum.

Thank You Rhum Attitude for providing an amazing rum tasting during the 19th month of global lockdown, how long is this nonsense going to last. Tasting continued onwards with SBS Jamaica New Yarmouth 1994. Traditional high end SBS bottle, packaging and label design. Bright golden color. Strong Jamaican influence mixed mild vanilla and orange zest to your nose and palate when neat sipped. Dry but natiral flavors ending. Jamaican rum fanboys can easily add 2 points to my score.

Ve vůni ji v chuti příjemná drevitost, karamel a trochu ovoce. Chuť plna a voltaz dobře zvolena.
