Very soft and somewhat closed. On the other hand, there is a slightly sharp alcohol note. After a short time, a clear sweetness pushes through, complemented by a variety of fruity notes. On the one hand I find citrus fruits and peaches, on the other hand also exotic fruits such as pineapple. The fruit aroma is slightly floral. As the alcohol dissipates over time, a subtle spiciness of oak comes through. I don't find a typical smell of rum, but clear vanilla and caramel notes. In a blind tasting, I would have guessed a bourbon cask.
The attack is intense and very sweet with caramel. The tingling on the tip of the tongue could be alcohol-related, but it also seems a bit peppery. The mouthfeel becomes drier and slightly astringent relatively quickly. Citrus fruits are very clear and add a tart component to the palette. After a few seconds, a delicate bitterness of oak spreads on the back of the tongue.
Dry with bittersweet oak and caramel. It lasts relatively long. After most impressions have already disappeared, a subtle fruity note reappears that reminds me of raspberries.
Even softer on the nose, the fruits stand out more clearly. On the tongue it is now also softer and significantly sweeter than undiluted. The sweetness lasts longer, the astringency stays away. The fruit from the nose is again very intense, and there is also marzipan. The finish is now also sweet with white chocolate and caramel.
