  1. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Rum whiskys and I will not be friends anymore. It is my own fault if I still try it again and again. This varies depending on the dilution between sprittig / bäh and arbitrary, and the positive aspects of the previous notes I can not find unfortunately, especially those of Oktobull (the enthusiastic dad of the samples - I'm really sorry :-(). So probably just incompatibility and a mistake on my part, I do not want to complain about the price.
    • Nose
      undiluted: artificially banana (cheap banana fondant) with glue and sawdust, very sprittig, after 15 minutes it's a bit milder, but still calls for water, but that brings no points, the fuel disappears, the sawdust is stronger, banana weaker, Glue dried, some white pepper, nothing else ... to the next drop of water he is already drowned :-(
    • Taste
      A drop of pouring from the finger nibbled - bäh, artificial, plastic, solvents ... and even at the first real sip it starts. There is sugar, or cane sugar, molasses, pepper, but also a disgusting-artificial touch, as if I had not washed my hands properly after workshop / painting work. And of course he is really hot. With neat water it will be caramel-creamy-milk chocolate with a little nut and white pepper.
    • Finish
      undiluted: long, (too) hot and bitter, pepper-bitter with a hint of coffee diluted: Nutella with white pepper

    This is the first malt with a rum barrel full ripeness I've ever had in the jar and is now by far the best malt ever to have seen a rum barrel. That's how I imagine a whisky from a rum barrel. The most finishes that I know seem to be over set or go completely under. This is absolutely not the case here.
    He is incredibly delicious. Pure and / or with water.
    • Nose
      a slightly dark sweetness of raisins and fermented fruits rises in the nose; Marzipan and a hint of glue; Roses and violets; Brown sugar; then come these dominoes, which are always available at Christmas time; with a little time, the rum-character comes through: sweet and dark-fruity, as I imagine rum just like that; then come a few spices such as nutmeg, clove and pepper; the alcohol is very well integrated; it gets tighter with water and the floral notes become more dominant
    • Taste
      syrupy; nice fruity sweet with brown sugar and oak; In addition, nuts, raisins and again marzipan come, a slight pepper note sets in with time; the alcohol is just right with water it gets very creamy and silky; Light wood and freshly ground spices are added; Citrus flavors are there and it gets dry easily
    • Finish
      medium to long; fermented fruits and a slight bitterness; followed by a great, intense sweetness; this works rather artificial or very very rum-like; this sweet completes the finish beautifully; the throat remains in the throat for a very long time; slightly dry on the palate with water comes slightly spicy wood and this rum-typical sweetness is back

    relatively unharmonious, I do not find the rum cask. Spirit driven, not surprising, but drinkable.

    Blind tasting:
    I wouldn't have thought of rum, and if you look at the notes here in the base, nobody has the peat smoke. It was so clearly present for me, even if of course no peat puff. Is that the rum barrel? So machner Trinidad and Jamaica candidate also has rather diesel, slightly rusty flavors with it, doesn't have to be as blatant as caroni. Maybe it was them? Question after question.
    • Nose
      Lightly fruity, vanilla, pear, powdered sugar, anise, subtle peat smoke, before fruity aromas come to the fore again. Slightly mineral.
    • Taste
      Quite strong in the mouth, some peat, quite citrus, bitterness, warm.
    • Finish
      The finish is sweet, tingling, fresh, only minimal bitterness, cool mint and a hint of peat.

  10. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    This is such a classic whisky that you can drink while watching TV. The flavors come across well, if not overly complex. By Rumfass brings it then a little variety in pure.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Sweet and slightly sour, molasses, yellow overripe fruits, exotic, grated coconut, vanilla, which is also very creamy, has nothing unpleasant for me
    • Taste
      87 87
      creamy, sweet, here also the influence of the rum clearly there, light acidity, molasses, honey, also clear vanilla, biscuit dough, not quite as fruity as in the nose, then the second sip then the fruit there, more intense than the first sip, have but also had more in the mouth, nice, good to drink, not super complex, but delicious
    • Finish
      86 86
      aftertaste, grapefruit, as if you were chewing something on the orange inner wall, slightly nutty. medium
