    A freshly filled sample was tasted. Since I am not a friend of Rum-Fass ripening, I was even more surprised by this pleasant bottling. Even so, a whole bottle will probably not find its way to me. To "try" this whisky is in my opinion recommended in any case.

      Immediately after pouring: rum and rum again.
      After a few minutes in the glass, this previously dominant smell is subdivided into a composition of packed brown sugar, tropical fruits (banana stands out) and some glue (pleasant) or a nice symbiosis with these impressions. Some vanilla is to be guessed. The in my opinion wonderfully balanced and round whole is again to emphasize. The 88 points awarded here are probably very much dependent on how one stands for rum as such. Here I like the overall picture very well.

      Rum heavy. Again light adhesive notes combined with a pleasant, short sharpness, which makes the tongue prickle. Fruit that turns relatively quickly into banana. The packed brown sugar comes here again to my mind. A small but really small touch of vanilla. 87 points I think are right here.

      Rather short with just as briefly emerging, but moderate sharpness. When you try to relish, the banana that has already been found here appears again. Even a sweetie comes through. Here I would have liked something more "smell" and taste, as disappointing I would not describe it despite that. Thus, there are 85 points at this point.

    A positive surprise for me, because I am not a fan of rum barrel storage due to the molasses notes that often annoy me.
    This one is sugar-sweet without the (annoying) molasses.
    • Nose
      Fruity and sweet. Vanilla and pears. A good dose of alcohol. After the first sip, he opens something more. Becomes even sweeter towards white chocolate.
    • Taste
      At first impression rather light and mild. Sugar sweet. A lot of pressure on the tongue. Dry on the palate. A good portion of oak at the back.
    • Finish
      Medium length, warm and fairly dry. Over time, more and more oak, which even becomes very acidic. But never uncomfortable.
