This tasting was the occasion for me to compare the Neat Glass with the traditional tulip glass


Nose: Color: Amber. With the NeatGlass, the coulour is more difficult to describe, due to the shape of the glass and the light effects as a consequence.

Tulip glass: A nice nose marked by beautiful and frank notes of baba au rum, hazelnut, mocha, very present and perfectly balanced. A very pleasant nose, without being very complex. Then appear nice herbaceous notes, adding freshness to the notes described above.


Glass NeatGlass: An extremely discreet nose letting slight minty smells appear. It takes very long for the glass to reveal scents that are noticeable immediately with a traditional tulip glass.
Tulip glass: The first impression in the mouth is that of a discreet rum, but soon sweet notes of milk chocolate appear, slowly evolving towards notes clearly pastry. The palate is nice and smooth.
Glass NeatGlass: same as the tulip glass, but the dosage in the mouth is much more complex due to the wide rim.


The finish is remarkable. Initially, the sweetness that characterized the mouth mouth, and then has a nice trend towards slightly herbaceous notes, and then a nice bitterness, cashews. It is long and is dominated by the freshness rather than bitter notes pus from the beginning. Great complexity.
89/100

Personal Comment
Color: Dark Mahogany
Less expressive than his 15 years old junior, this rum has initially a quite discreet nose but getting very interesting quickly. Nice spicy notes emerge, evolving towards herbaceous smells, mint. The nose is enhancing gradually with the aeration.
The palate is first smooth and discreet and rapidly evolvies towards notes between cocoa warmth and an almost citrus like acidity. But it is ultimately the cocoa wins. Pleasant mouth without being overly complex. A slight imbalance denoted by contrast cocoa and citrus.
The finish is relatively short and remains in the registry cocoa-mouth.
