Jamaica Isla del Ron

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.

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.

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.

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.


Colour: Mahogany
Nose: spicy oak pleasant after he took a little air.
Mouth: woody and spicy as the nose.
Finish: rather long, caramel and gentle enough at the end, banana plug outbreak.

“What a great rum! This is a cracking stuff”
This dram has a copper-like color.

Nose (85): (5)more than average. molasses, citrus, spices, vanilla, banana.

Taste (88): powerful, oily. honey, spices, wood, vanilla, chocolate.

Finish (87): (4)average. honey, spices, wood.


Colour: Amber
Nose:First PX sherry notes, later Pattex glue
Mouth:complex, sweet chocolate, creamy
Finish: Dry, but sweet, a little bit short


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.


Colour: middle bronze
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)

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.

appearance:reddish gold
nose:medium intensity, well integrated alcohol, wood glue, slightly minty, caramel candies, profile 3/4 sweet, 1/4 spicy
tatse:medium intensity, fairly well integrated alcohol, sweet spices, cloves, white pepper, little sweetness, an opposite profile of the nose, therefore 1/4 sweet, 3/4 spicy


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.

Whisky is an alcoholic drink. Let's prefer quality to quantity as the abuse of alcohol beverages can damage the health. Consuming alcoholic drinks during pregnancy, even in small quantities, can seriously affect the health of the child.
