Uitvlugt Rum 1995, Swell de Spirits, 500ml

  • Nose: a similar nose on pineapple (granita) and bananas, with apples and a hint of vanilla ice cream. Some floral notes that were also present in the Colours of Rum release, but perhaps a little more here. Some liquorice. A few metallic notes which aren’t out of place. Great sweet and sour balance.

    Mouth: perhaps a bit more estery than the 1999 before. Starts high-pitched with more pineapple, green apple but also more wood influence. Getting sweeter and darker over time, evolving towards honey, aniseed, even some cold espresso in the end. Very subtle tarry notes.

    Finish: long, with dark chocolate, mentholated notes, toffee and hints of drying wood.

    Hard to pick a favourite. This one is darker and supposedly more complex, but also more woody. The perfectly chiseled fruits of the 1999 give it an edge. You may still be able to find a bottle of this one. Score: 89/100
