Das 13. Sample hat sehr ausgeprägte Noten von Gras, Pflanzen und Jungem Holz. Sehr trocken am Gaumen. Vermutlich ein Agricole. Ich tippe mal auf Neisson oder Bally.
Ich tippe einfach mal auf Venezuela.
Warm honey, like sweetness, sugar cane and wood in the nose, grassy notes and dry (grappa) agricole in the mouth with a little bit of heath but alcohol is integrated very well and a bitter finish.
Going with agricole, maybe Saint James
I don’t think this is Agricole, or it is some with good age.
Smell: Sweetness , Wood and Spices.
Taste: sweet at the tip of my tongue, spicy, woody. Some dark fruit. Taste then goes to herbal notes, a bit earthy, definitely a bitter note to the end.
ABV I would say not really over 50% or really good integrated.
My tip: Guyana.
But I would believe, as I see in the past days, that this could as well be some experimental Rum from Norway.
Ich muss auch an Agricole denken. Grasig, aber diesmal sehr smooth und leicht süßlich (Honig, Traube). Wenig Holz. Ich tippe auf unter 50 % vol.
I am really not sure regarding Agricole … I have the feeling that this is similar to a navy Blend component. Or my taste buds are still a bit bonkers.
Nase: Ananas, Vanille, Süß, Karamell, dunkle Schokolade, Vergoren, Holz
Light Caramel color, yummy!
Nose: grassy yet sweet on the nose (I get light vanilla and just a touch of caramel/burnt sugar). I also nose a light fruit note (might be peaches?), balanced out by some wood that give an extra pungency to the rum.
Palate: on the first sip, I feel the herbal/ sugarcane notes better, with the sweet sensation more like honey that caramel. The rum really warms your chest, but with an elegant delicacy, way different from those ABV-funky monsters from Jamaica. There might be also some spices in the mix.
Finish: that honey/wood combination is the main leftover, but I agree that there’s a slightly bitter note in the end.
ABV-wise, could be around 51/52%.
Everything seems to point to an agricole, but maybe not from Martinique (Marie Galante?)
Well, close enough for me to call it (almost) bullseye!
Interesting. Well, I have to drink more then, I gather.
