Guyana

Français | English
Guyana flagGuyana cultivated sugar cane since the sixteenth century and produces rum from the XVII and XVIII centuries. The Demerara River area offers land very suitable for the production of sugar cane. Quality rums called Demerara has since toured the world and even if rums produced elsewhere in Guyana will sometimes give the name of Demerara, this term may not be used. A legal battle is being conducted by Demerara Distillers Ltd to obtain or recover rather the exclusive right to the name.

Commentaire de Loic43
Nose: Very pleasant and balanced vegetal aromas accompanied by a slight astringency and a fruity and sweet side where you guess the pear jam, the dried fruits (figs, apricots, bananas, currants), spices . The alcohol is well integrated.

Palate: The attack is fresh and soft, more melted and less readable than expected. We find the grassy / spicy side all on a background of a very gentle hint of vanilla. Currants are always present in the finish.

Finish: rather short, always on currants.

Comment: Very good, dangerously easy to drink.

WDTSRum_2013_03
Commentaire de Isleofarrik
Colour: light amber
Nose: dense and spicy, notes of sugar cane, tobacco, cloves and cinnamon. Then some chocolate and dried figs. Not much development, but very tight.
Taste: surprising entrance, as it is full of fruity notes of candied apples, blackberries, prunes and pisang goreng. Then it switches towards chocolate and mocha and some nice drying oaky notes. Good length and balance.

Commentaire de BailB
This old rum releases us first rather aggressive nose, but floral. Some cool shows us hints of caramel and coffee.

Aggressiveness in the mouth is felt from the first attack. Very short in the end, it still manages to collect the same notes on the nose, ie caramel and herbs.

Orange dress.
Nose spicy, peppery. empty glass smell woody barrel cellar.
Mouth spice and vanilla syrup pretty sweet bread can be too much.
Final remains on the not very long vanilla sweet mouth.

Commentaire de Jmputz
Color: Mahogany
A pretty sweet nose where some spicy notes are trying to emerge, but generally still dominated by odor of molasses. After a few minutes of aeration, spices become more present and nuts add to it.
In the mouth, an interesting mix of sugar and bitterness seems to dominate and gives a little more complexity to the rum, but without adding something spectacular. Still the sweetness and some chocolate notes.
The finish is quite long and is in the notes of chocolate and mocha.

Nose (82): (5)more than average. brown sugar, citrus, floral, spices, meat.

Taste (84): light, smooth. brown sugar, molasses, citrus, liquorice.

Finish (81): (4)average. molasses, spices.

Commentaire de Wiski
Nose: Vanilla and floral. Very creamy. Discreet. Sweet spices (ginger).

Taste: Typical notes of rum long fermentation of Jamaica. Exotic fruit fermenting. Develops on the brown sugar, honey and molasses.

WDTSRum_2013_03
Commentaire de Jean-Michel
Colour: Oloroso.
Nose: Very strange. We have lots of organics in there. A weird mixture between rotten fruits (well… really very ripe at the least) and… peat. Ripe kakis in a smoker’s room. Salted water (make it Vichy or Contrex). Cooking cabbage (but could as well be leeks). And perhaps a splash of industrial orange juice at the end. Destabilizing, but not repulsive, I must say.
Mouth: In straight line with the nose. Soft fruits puree mixed with salted water.
Finish: A little toffee at the end.
Comment: Well, this is completely off the beaten track rum. Salty, briny, banana-free, with lots of organics of all kind. Completely flawed or lots of personality? Up to you to make your mind. Technically unscorable.

Commentaire de Durhum
Amber / orange, oily and huge legs.

Exaggerated and greedy nose, on excess as a full of butter pastry. Almond, vanilla, fruit (banana, apricot), rancid.

Super soft attack, smooth and round. on the same flavors as the mouth, with a more pronounced spicy side. Nothing special for me.

The finish is short but refreshing with a minty and peppery notes on the finish.

Commentaire de Peatynose
Colour: dark bronze
Nose: strong treacle, little bit boring
Taste: hmm, not so fine, like the nose
Aftertaste: short


(Remark: the original note given by this taster is 62. This is his first participation and he probably uses another scale than the standard one in the WDTS. To guarantee the coherence of the results, this quotation has been changed by the administrator)

Commentaire de Durhum
beautiful amber copper color

the nose is delicious, creamy like a slice of gingerbread, spices are blended into molasses, caramel as a kind of spices (cinnamon, nutmeg), which is sweet and woody (+ dried fruit) is increasingly present at rest. all is very well balanced.

the mouth is silky and rather ... powerful, and contrasts with the much more greedy nose. it is spicy (pepper), fruity (exotic), followed by a bitterness (nice notes of licorice)

the end is just as peppery (spicy), always with the licorice. Note a herbaceous plant side and the mouth (tobacco leaf)

Rum with two faces, one greedy and the other rather powerful, where the enthusiasm of a younger rum meets the wisdom of the older ...

Commentaire de Jean-Michel
Nose: This seems elegant. Starts quite discreet, with a nice alcoholic balance (46% ?). Probably significantly older than most others (am I wrong? I’ve got the feeling that the older rum gets, the less luxuriant it is). I don’t get much from the nose (perhaps some kind of roasted nuts assortment), but at least this seems natural and flawless to me. Just a hint of hard caramel after a while ?
Mouth: Yes. Nothing too sugary nor too chemical in this one. Just a little dash of banana in the background to remind you that this is no whisky. A clean spirit enriched by a careful maturation. I confirm the roasted nuts track, and the perfect alcoholic balance, just to warm you up. The mouthfeelinf is creamy, rich, enhanced by very pleasant tannins, that keep your taste buds awaken.
Finish: Long, warming, pleasantly astringent, with a wee hint of hydrocarbon.
Comment: Wouldn’t there be this slight banana note, this could compete face to face with more than one teenage sherry cask malt. I like it.

Commentaire de Cocojazzsta
Colour: Amber
Nose offers a pleasant woody bouquet (old furniture), rather powerful, some vinous notes and a lot of spices (pepper), notes caramelized
Taste: sharp and quite fruity attack, ensues a beautiful development with a little oily side, woody and quite powerful tar notes. Alcohol well integrated on the palate, dried fruit, almonds, pleasant bitterness (zest), fairly balanced.

Commentaire de Jmputz
Cloves and nutmeg are first perceived odors. However, the nose is quite discreet.
On the palate, the first impression is a bit disappointing for the relatively flat nature of the rum that is hard to express.
Not particularly complex, tastes are hard to define because missing some precision. We stay on vanilla.
The finish is long and spicy nose can be found here.

finish:
short to medium

Commentaire de Mars
Nose: A little bit dirty, fruits too ripe, slightly minty.

Palate: Fruity.

Finale: A little bit dirty, fruits too ripe. A little mint and anise.

Comments: Not complex and I'm not a big fan of the fruits flavors prsent in this one. It is pleasant to drink anyway.

WDTSRum_2013_02
Commentaire de Dagde
Nose: Notes of varnish, white flowers, a little cocoa and sweet fruity (plum) form an ultra-melted nose sprinkled with black pepper. It is round, very linear: An average nose but not quite hectic

Mouth: We find this consistent look (very flat here) with a jumble of flowers, a little lemon juice and a lot of sweet spices.

Finale: It fades very quickly on chocolate and spices. The aftertaste becomes drier (lemon and cinnamon).

Comment: Too repulsive, lacking aromatic power (especially in the mouth) this rum is actually quite annoying (and quickly forgotten) although it is not completely unacceptable.

WDTSRum_2013_02
Commentaire de Piazzolla
Nose: especially on rather artificial flavors (glue and synthetic vanilla). Not very attractive. Very marked.
Taste: silky texture, but not much happens later .... Less expressive on the nose.
Finale: absent
Conclusion: the nose is not seducing, the mouth is almost nonexistent. The overall rum in my opinion dispensable without being bad.

Commentaire de Cosinus
nose
Pepper and molasses, clove, geranium. The mixture is pretty weird. It reminds me of the smell of putty that was used to fix the windows.

mouth:
The attack is fresh with aromas of chewed a little chemical and plastic. This becomes more peppery and woody. The finish is quite bitter like the gentian.

Commentaire de Wiski
Color: Mahogany.

Nose: Rich and intense. First on sweet spices (cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg). Then the intense notes of black fruit (plums, dates, figs) bursting with citrus sugar (orange, orange peel). Then hints of coffee cream, chocolate, leather, licorice, tobacco, honey grow. Gingerbread with aeration is more precise and clear. Old, very old! Encaustic is noble, the polished wood, dense, fine. A smoke colored as it should.

Palate: The palate is fat and full. Always these sweet spices nose, this gingerbread, the honey, and the notes of chocolate, black coffee, orange peel, old noble wood, licorice, tobacco.

Finish: Long, neither dry nor sweet, beautiful harmony between sweet and bitter notes (orange, orange peel, cocoa, black coffee, honey).

Commentaire de Malt1972
Colour: old oak

Nose: Very fragrant with an alcoholic edge. Some nuttiness, then rich perfumed sweetness. Oranges and tangerines. Mango as well. Some earthy notes.

Taste: quite dry and lots of tannins. Sweet raisins and baked banana's. Sultana. Becomes peppery and salty later on.

Finish: the salt remains for a long time. No sweetness at all anymore.

Comment: intriguing rum. Complex. Not a very common profile. It does also have some sherry influences.

Commentaire de Roblanza
colour: dark amber
nose: old wood, vanilla, black berries, spices, cola and cinnamon
taste: sweet mellow taste, less expressive as the nose. some spices and cherry coke, towards the finish more spices and woody notes, ends with a bite instead of a sweet note like most rums, very nice

Commentaire de Singlemalt71
Nose: Remarkable (red) fruit tones and sherry. The scents are warm and intense. The smell become spicier after a period of time.

Nose: Anis, mint, fruity.

Mouth: Powerful, highly acidic fruits.

Final: Strong bitter, coffee with milk.

Commentaire de Isleofarrik
Colour: mahogany.
Nose: nicely sweet with some herbs and notes of vanilla, coconut and banana. Also heavy notes of new wood. After a while it even becomes somewhat dusty, with a hint of varnish.
Taste: subtle entrance, with sweet herbs, pepper and notes of strong coffee. Then the alcohol kicks in, but that quickly fades and leaves a well balanced finish, with a delicate sweetness and notes of cinnamon and licorice.
85/100
WDTSRum_2013_01
Commentaire de Jbrice
Nose: guava, papaya, caramel, spices. Quite melted.

Taste: Very special. The palate is explosive by demonstrating a mixture of flavors difficult to identify at first. In the end, it is mostly spices that stand out. Wood also.

Final: long on spices ...

Comments: A rum with a atypical profile. Well done but I do not catch.
85/100
WDTSRum_2013_01
Commentaire de Dagde
Nose: It smells beautiful aromas presence of vinegar, plum, chocolate and a little coffee. Alcohol seems to emerge quite heavily. A very sherry rum. Water brings out notes more acidic (lemon, cherry liqueur). The opening gives hints of biscuit (small butter) and weakens the vinegar.

Palate: The alcohol is present (even too present) with chocolate, spices and this vinegar touch still accompanied by raspberries. Water crashes unfortunately a little too fruity. That leaves lemon zest, chocolate and spices again.
The opening makes it less fit-in. The spicy chocolate chocolate but found the vinegar that no longer exists watermark.

Finale: Chocolate leaves room behind mouth tangy raspberry character. The length is not great but still honorable.

Comment: Finally this great rum eyeing the side of sherry although it leaves reflected his true nature by notable acidity.
84/100
WDTSRum_2013_01
Commentaire de Dede
Color: Mahogany

Nose: Very expressive, powerful but not aggressive, it develops a slightly bitter (not quite ripe papaya, bitter orange) fruit mixed with exotic spices and raisins macerated in alcohol. (a hint of anise, clove, nutmeg??)

Palate: The attack is sweet but a little weak. The middle shows a nice fragrant woods (sandalwood, cedar), notes of citrus (bitter orange peel), a little bitterness too. It is melted and really pleasant to drink. Too bad it lacks a bit of power.

Finale: It unfortunately lacks intensity and length.

Conclusion: I like it, but the mouth would have won a few more degrees.

Commentaire de Whiskywardrobe
“So woody... this rum must be really old. Too woody for my taste anyway”
This dram has a old oak-like color.

Nose (83): (5)more than average. wood, nuts, floral, burnt sugar, spices. Like if it has been sherried aged, Massive amount of wood.

Taste (83): powerful, oily. wood, floral, citrus, spices, sweet, nuts, green almonds.

Finish (82): (4)average. wood, burnt sugar, floral.
83/100
WDTSRum_2013_01
Commentaire de Jmputz
Color: Mahogany
Nose nicely spicy, pepper, clove and a hint of cinnamon with a hint of hydrocarbon as a kind of watermark.
The first attack is quite indecisive, a little "rough" and it takes a few seconds to stabilize tastes in a fairly complex (especially to define) whole. A mixture of bitterness (gentian and wood), and some green acid fruits. Astonishing mouth.
The finish is long and starts on the bitter notes of the mouth and gradually moving towards acidity mingled with notes of gentian.
A remarkably original rum where nothing is missing, but the range of flavors is not really my preference.
82/100
WDTSRum_2013_01
Commentaire de Mapi
Dark color with red highlights

Nose: The nose is intense with sweet scents that give smoothness that make the rum look like liquor. Then notes of sandalwood develop, oak which is taking over after aeration.

Palate: A big material, a little soft or even syrupy. Very floral aromas pulling cologne with some deviant characters to bile and vomit. It ends on the old leather.

Final: The final will be built on a bitterovercooked caramel which is a bit unpleasant. It ends on a combination of sugar and wood.

The nose was promising, the mouth and the final are disappointing.
81/100
WDTSRum_2013_01
Commentaire de Piazzolla
Nose: I'm not a fan of this type of rum (green cane sugar). Very vinous side also. Lack of balance in my opinion even if it improves with aeration.
Mouth attack on a strong herbaceous bitterness over a note of burnt wood. Intense but notes that I do not like. More balanced than the nose suggests. A little dry with subliminal exotic notes (only, unfortunately). Toast.
Finish: medium long happily in line with the mouth.
Conclusion quite unfortunately marked by notes that I do not like rum. Interesting also (somewhat complex).
80/100
WDTSRum_2013_01
Commentaire de Jean-Michel
Colour: Burnt umber with red hues.

Nose: Typical of English-speaking Carribean island rum (Jamaican?). Very dark, with heady fragrances of the underlying molasses. Lots of banana flambéed. More and more spices now. Cinnamon, cloves, and all that jazz.

Mouth: Even spicier and softer now. Four spices. A banana-chocolate macaroon flooded with cinnamon and cloves. Fun and tasty, but not really subtle, if I may say. Closer from a highly available spiced rum than from a high end Demerara rum.

Finish: Medium length, with a slight woody dryness reminding the betel nuts.

Comment: Typical molasses rum, with lots of banana and spices. Quite pleasant, but lacks of subtlety if you ask me. Would be more at its place on the shelves of a mixologist than in the cabinet of an amateur.

78/100
WDTSRum_2013_01
Commentaire de Cosinus
Nose: First musk, burnt caramel with a bit of candied orange. It is fairly concentrated. Then this leads to the herbs and becomes less pleasant cardboard and wet paper.

Palate: On the varnish. It is bitter and woody with chemicals aroma like insecticide. It's very dry. The finish is persistent on the side and chemical insecticide.
For me it is the worst of the series.
