- Significantly more Rumeinfluss, but unfortunately still only average.
- I think rum must always oppose something strong in whisky, which unfortunately is not the case here.
The rum is not hidden, directly neat molasses in the nose, not as sweet as expected, more of a hint of sour, vanilla, grated orange peel, a bit like scented candle oil, fruit yoghurt, gummy bears, I never had, but after the first Mouth is the nose almost dead, nothing left there, it comes back with time
creamy, very sweet here, again this tart fruity, definitely gummy, now rather peach, vanilla, really very creamy, has already strong impacts of rum, some orange, but not the sweetish fruit, but the rest of the fruit chambers on which one then chewing around forever.
This almost artificially sweet acidic lingers for a long time, as if you were sucking a fruit gum, so take a bit of two, keep yourself neatly long
- Basst scho says ma with us. Where there should have been a lot of dark rum, but I wonder a bit, was certainly not very long in Rumfass. Rumreifungen are so far not so mine. Had better Benriachs. 81 points
Oat muesli, green grated apple, honeydew melon, very sweet and not at all biting in the nose, Greek honey yoghurt.
a little bit biting, but then very sweet and grainy. Quickly becoming dry and bitter. Hardly fruit notes, little stimulating saliva. Second sip a bit better, some fruit with melon can now be guessed. Yes, there is something rum.
A touch of rum remains, nice mouthfeel. The finish I like really neat.
