Jamaica

Jamaica is one of the few producers to have retained on a large-scale the technique of pot stills.

This tradition explains in part the powerfully aromatic rum produced on the island. The manufacture of rum and reputation of Jamaica in this matter back to the XVIII century.

Personal Comment
Color: Mahogany
The nose is marked by vegetal notes, mint, wood. Wax and spices. It is complex and seems to announce a balanced rum. Great freshness emerges from the nose.
The first impression in the mouth is a pretty cool and then moves to nice bitter notes, coffee and chocolate, always with a slight acidity in the background.
Here no exaggerated sweetness as is sometimes the case for sugar cane alcohols. It is beautiful, complex and extremely pleasant to drink.
The final, of medium length, preserves the memory of these notes of coffee, still with the presence of this light fresh acidity.

Commentaire de Jbrice
Nose: gunpowder, matches, then sulfur and the tartness of fresh orange juice. Becomes rounder with aeration. Develops a slight metallic side. Very atypical. It also feels a biscuit side.

Taste: sweet, slightly salty at first and then more sweet / fruity in a second time.

Finish: long and round

Comments: I would say that this rum is confusing as it approaches a whisky aromatic level. Therefore, I love!

Commentaire de Wiski
olour: Amber.

Nose: The nose is quite pastry with notes of marzipan, buttered toast, custard, raised by sweet spices (ginger in particular) with notes of exotic fruits (lime).
With a dash of water, very fruity (fruit cake, pudding, Christmas cake). Notes of sherry. Becomes much more expressive, probably very old too.

Palate: The fruit is intense (ripe banana, citrus, ripe pear), with this background of sweet spices mixed with vanilla. Herbaceous and minty freshness develops. The sweet spices are still present (ginger, nutmeg).

Finale: On the hot brown sugar.

An old Long Pond?

Commentaire de Mars
Nose: Medicinal, peaty.

Taste: Very fruity (unfortunately, it disappears with breathing)

Finale: Pretty delicate fruity notes.

Comments: A very nice fruity rum with a nose that looks a bit like a single malt from Islay.

Commentaire de Piazzolla
Nose: varnish, vinous, green sugar cane. Not the profile I prefer.
Mouth: entrance is more pleasant than I thought. Quite complex and balanced. Many blended fruits (including citrus and exotic).
Final: average and almost regret. Note of coffee.
Finding a good surprise because the nose was not too "my kind." The mouth is really interesting with a nice mix of different fruits and a nice balance.

Commentaire de Mapi
Color: golden with brown highlights

Nose: The nose is very attractive with floral notes pulling the scent: white musk and lilac.
It then goes on sweet and woody classic aromas, all fairly balanced.

Mouth: the material is dense and imposing. We'll be right back on the floral aromas on the nose detected primarily on lilac. The sweet print is then bringing a lot of paella spices and especially saffron .
The general structure is interesting: both very sweet and pungent waves due to alcohol and cause as effervescence.

Final: The final is consistent with the tasting: the same structure and same flavors, lilac and capped off the rudder, a wooded point and nutmeg.

Commentaire de Dede
Color: Amber

Nose: Suave, with quite original bitter almond note, although a chemical strand ( between Cleopatrathe glue and orgeat syrup). A little bitter orange too, and something animal or organic extra. Somewhat complex but very pleasant.

Palate: sweet attack, as often with these rums. We find fairly standard notes (banana flambe), but also detected in the bitter almond nose and sweet spices (paprika?) And citrus (bitter orange).

Finish: Fairly long, marked by bitter orange with a renewed green bitterness.

Conclusion: Perhaps the most original of the session.

Commentaire de Isleofarrik
Colour: dark bronze.
Nose: lovely nose of roasted nuts, vanilla, mocha and chocolate, without being overly sweet.
Taste: returning notes of nuts and mocha, with some tropical fruits and coconut. Good strength, but the finish is somewhat short.

Commentaire de Roblanza
colour: dark amber
nose: very spicy, with (through the spiciness) hints of cola and nuts
taste: very smooth with less spices than the nose. old woodiness and sweet sugared peanuts. the finish is again spiced and coated with caramel

Commentaire de Jean-Michel
Colour: Polished mahogany.

Nose: Quite extreme. Lots of banana skin, and a strange blast of gas. Or any kind of hydrocarbon, actually. And perhaps a little Fanta. Milk chocolate. Thick and concentrated.

Mouth: Starts softer than on the nose. Deceptively weak, but very creamy. A melt chocolate-coffee ice cream with a splash of gin. An Alexandra ? Some almond cream. Fanta is back with quite some orange peels. Grows bigger, hotter, with more wood now.

Finish: Long and chocolaty.

Comment: This is quite an easy going rum. Not very assertive, but easy going. A nice Demerara from Guyanna ?

Commentaire de Malt1972
Colour: dark amber

Nose: a bit of a restrained nose at first. Dusty with a sharp edge. Stewed fruits: figs and dates. Also some tropical fruit. Hint of molasses.

Taste: light and gentle. Juicy sweetness. Treacle toffee softness. Vanilla and honey. Some spices at the end.

Finish: clean and sweet, like finishing a glass of cola.

Comment: not a very complex rum, but drinkable though. Dangerous!

Commentaire de Cosinus
Nose: Marzipan, quince, orange and candied fruit. One side with a little mint and earthy smoke. It is concentrated. Cardamom then it progresses to gum mint and anise.

Palate: This is balanced, very soft caramel on the side with a vegetable and some bitterness. It's a bit monolithic but rather dense and pleasant to drink after the previous.

Commentaire de Dagde
Nose: Aggressive chemical notes take the first step (Velleda felt powerful). At first nose, it is rather difficult to read what is hiding underneath. Aeration may open with notes of red fruit although caramel is highly present. It has a bit of red fruit jam then but not as expected (it turns almost by leguminous time). Felt Velleda is at it again by joining the party. A nose of grain that went wrong in fact.

Taste: Very caramel, vanilla but always with a grain youthful times. It feels to have a drink unstable. The fruit has disappeared and is clearly hungry.

Final: The final will be off the caramel (type cereal very sweet).

Comment: A rum which collapses very quickly. After a spicy nose, all but mastered the mouth is stillborn on a duet basic and uninteresting. Not much good to remember about this bottling.

Commentaire de Durhum
Beautiful amber color with golden highlights, heavy and thick legs.

The nose is woody and recalls a demerara rum; it is deep and thick, with notes of licorice, burnt brown sugar. Alcohol is quite present, fruity (dry nuts) and citrus (orange peel + / shell) + cocoa.

The attack is very soft and sweet on the same fruits, still woody (licorice strength) and brown sugar in the form of cooked caramel. it is gentle on the spices.

The final is long and is heavily woody (licorice), spicy and ends with a slightly acidic (refreshing) note.

Commentaire de Jmputz
Color: Dark Amber
Clove, hint of coconut, coffee, chocolate, and hints of tobacco combine to form a very complex nose while maintaining a good balance. A very expressive nose that promises a lot of fun.
In the mouth, a mixture of spices and coconut supported by a beautiful presence of a strong but not annoying alcohol. Chestnuts, chocolate, nuts are added fairly quickly and confirm the complexity detected in the nose.
Very nice finish, lingering and warm. The memory of spices and some hints of tobacco finisheswonderfully this tasting.

Commentaire de BailB
At the sight, this old rum seems syrupy, but not oily.

The nose is definitely woody, but also notes of tobacco, coffee and caramel. You can also smell a hint of raisins.

Very aggressive attack in the mouth can confirm woody character and tastes of caramel notes, tobacco, coffee. It is long in the mouth and is prolongs the taste for several minutes after tasting.

Commentaire de Jean-Michel
Colour: Burnished.
Nose: Quite deep and concentrated. This is not the regular 40% stuff. Chocolaty and coffeyish, with a pleasant spicy tang (mostly clove). Think of a high ABV Kahlua. Peppermint ice cream with chocolate chips. Or the other way round: Get 27 poured on a chocolate ice cream. Very pleasant anyway.
Mouth: Oh yes indeed, this is hotter than the average products, which helps balancing the sweet side of the spirit. Hot and creamy. Melting high end dark chocolate ice cream. Crushed mint leaves.
Finish: Long, getting drier now, with nice tannins.
Comment: A very pleasant and tasty rum, with a great balance between power and softness, alcohol and sweetness.

Commentaire de Loic43
Nose: Vegetal, white fruits, citrus (lemon, lime, grapefruit), bitter almonds, candied fruits, precious wood, humidor, mineral touches. A nose of a beautiful complexity that is reminiscent of a single malt aged in refill bourbon.

Palate: The alcohol is very well integrated. Warm and changing mouth offers marzipan, almond paste, candied fruits, spices (cinnamon, ginger), ripe fruit and traces of red fruit before returning to citrus.

Finale: Short but nice on the red fruit (raspberry).

Comment, Very nice and flawless, very easy to drink.

Nose: fine, Rumraisin, sweetness, wild honey
Taste: sweet in the beginning, strong impression of meat
Aftertaste: middle-long

(Remark: the original note given by this taster is 55. 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 Wiski
Nose: Lots of ripe fruit (bananas, dates, prunes), with caramel and honey. The woody is quite smoky. Licorice, molasses. Develops later on lively and fresh citrus.

Palate: The cask, it is pretty vanilla and caramel, but not excessive, with woody notes which are developing rapidly. Rather light. Very focused on exotic fruits.

Final: a point-smoke on the oak.

Commentaire de Isleofarrik
Colour: dark gold
Nose: elegant and somewhat shy, but I get notes of molasses, coconut, vanilla and just a hint of pipe tobacco. Then fruity notes shine through, oranges, apricots and candied apples.
Taste: quite a bold entrance, with more coconut and vanilla and some sweet spices (cloves, ginger, all-spice). Also the same fruity notes, plus some cherry added. Very nice mouthfeel, but the finish is a little short.
