Guyana Solera

appearance: reddish gold
nose: medium intensity, well integrated alcohol, honey of pine woods, caramel, molasses, light cow dung (after 20 minutes of breathing) profile 3/4 sweet, 1/4 spicy
taste: low to medium intensity (growing up during taste), well integrated alcohol, honey of pine woods is back but this time with a somewhat resinous aspect, slightly bitter like burnt caramel
finish: medium

88/100

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.

86/100

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.
86/100

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.

86/100

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.
83/100

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.
82/100

“It is a strange rum. It is not bad at all but has a off-note that spoils a bit an otherwise nice rum”
This dram has a copper-like color.

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.

82/100

Colour: hazelnut brown
Nose: raisins
Mouth: Sweet, no specific aromas, dry
Finish: Smells alcoholic, short

81/100

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.
80/100

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.

79/100

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.
78/100

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)
