Was den heutigen Rum angeht würde ich glatt wieder auf Guyana tippen.:see_no_evil:

Also ein Pott denke ich eher nicht.
Falls doch, hole ich mir eine Flasche. :laughing:

Aromen von Pflaume, Traube, Kirsch, Vanille, Holz/Sägespäne. Leichter Essigstich. Am Gaumen sogar nich einen Tick fruchtiger, süß. Bin diesmal auch bei @Wernie Dauertipp: Guyana (PM). Eventuell auch Barbados oder Navy Blend (TS wäre hier auch sehr nah dran).

Gefällt mir sehr gut!:+1:

Nice caramel color

Nose: God, it’s a weird one…I initially sense just, pure, untamed alcohol. Swirling it around in the glass, release some light raisins notes. There might be some vanilla and wood to it, although it is really hard for me to pass through that alcohol barrier.

Some water helps releasing a little bit of fruity notes (some grapes are coming through…)

Palate: I hardly get some burnt caramel, wood, maybe some roasted almonds. Again, thanks to the water I’m able to pick some raisins and red grapes. There’s a spicy, peppery note to it that keeps the alcohol alive. ABV-wise, I guess it’s on the 55-ish.

Finish: Slightly bitter, wood, roasted almonds and burnt caramel.

Well, I really dunno what to think apart from that (in)famous Pott…:sweat_smile: (Can someone be kind enough to explain me the true origin of this I would be thankful)

EDIT: on second thought, and after let it breathe for at least 30min, the profile becomes more approachable…I agree with the others that this could come from Guyana

Thanks to all the organizers of this wonderful initiative!!! Merry Christmas guys! :slight_smile:

Ja, Barbados und Navy Blend wären die nächsten Gedanken gewesen, wobei Barbados eher Platz 3 belegen würde, da passt die Nase aber nicht der Gaumen.

Either my palate has been destroyed by our Christmas Dinner, or this is an overproof 151 rum. It burnt the hell in mouth and throat.

That would be really cruel. Its a bit less :wink:

You really have to let this one breath for an hour, then it’s much more enjoyable

Nase: fruchtig, Karamell.
Gaumen: beim besten Willen schmecke ich nur Alkohol…

Pott rum is just a very cheap “Dark” Rum (so unaged with color) widely known in germany. Long history with the rum imports manged from merchants in Flensburg. Available in (almost) every supermarket and mostly used for baking. I mean it’s not tasty on its own but only cost around 5-7€ per 700ml bottle, so what to expect.

Hehe, der Rum ist wirklich biestig, aber tatsächlich einer meiner persönlichen Favouriten aus diesem Jahr

Thank God I am not the only one. I had Orange on the palate but I do attribute that to the cut oranges nearby. Also we may have or have not put a small or not so small amount of ginger to our food today…
