TDL (Trinidad) 2009 Rum, The Whisky Jury

  • Nose: starts slightly wood-driven, but in a nice, polished way.  Mild solventy notes. It becomes beautifully fruity after a while, with hints of mango, pineapple and clementine. Mint leaves and cardamom as well. A drop of water brings out a nice oily note.

    Mouth: impressive again, showing the same mix of tropical fruits. Pink grapefruits, mango, pineapple and echoes of passion fruits. In fact this reminds us of some very old cognac, albeit at high strength. Really impressive. Some fruit tea, aniseed and oak char in the very end. Again, water works well.

    Finish: long, with more juicy citrus and oak.

    For a relative youngster, this offers an impressive fruit explosion. Certainly on the same level as the excellent TDL 2003 of late. If you bring the ABV down a little, this becomes as drinkable as an old cognac.
