Demerara 1995 12 yo – Samaroli
The Rum: Demerara 12 yo – 45 abv
Bottled: 2007 by Samaroli, 472 bottles
Nose :starts rather soft on herbal honey with some hints of clove and vanilla. After some time (quite some time actually) strawberry candy.
Taste: medium-sweet, going direction cognac even. The molasses is well present, with again this slightky herbal and medicinal touch. Burned sugar on the background. Nice round tastes, giving us the impression that this rum is actually older than it really is. A subtle smokiness gives the total picture a little extra.
Finish: Soft and sweet Ricola herbal bonbons that seem to be lingering on forever.
Our Score : 18/20
Remarks: matured in an ex-whiskycask in Scotland
