Delicious and a lot of tropical fruit. Vanilla is coming through in this one and it sticks for a while. A super rum to sit and sip with your friends. A very good beginners rum in my mind,

Too sweet and a too dominant coconut aroma and taste in my opinion. Keep it in my Rum bar just because my wife likes it.

Dieser Rum geht immer... ein gesüßter Klassiker für Einsteiger. An der Nase viel Karamell und Kokosnuss mit Banane. Dazu aber auch Holz und Klebstoff, der aber schnell verfliegt. Im Mund angenehm mild mit dezenter Süße. Wieder tropische Früchte und Karamell. Sicherlich ein sehr guter Einsteigerrum, wenn nicht sogar der Beste, da er preislich und von der Dosage noch in Ordnung ist.

Un bon rhum pour le prix. Trop de sucre ajouté néanmoins pour sentir clairement les différentes saveurs. Tout en rondeur. Un rhum de débutant ou pour s’initier.

Nach langer Zeit nochmal einen Einstiegsklassiker im Glas. Als Einsteiger fand ich in sehr gut und extrem gefällig. Der Zucker bügelte damals alles glatt. Mittlerweile ist er weniger süß. Dafür eine unangenehme alkoholische Note. Unspektakulär in der Nase, unspektakulär am Gaumen, kurzer Nachklang. Immer noch eine spektakuläre Flasche. Fazit, schlecht eingebundener Alkohol, sehr dünn und kurzweilige Aromen. Trotzdem würde ich ich ihn nach wie vor jedem Einsteiger empfehlen.

Je comprends le succès mais trop saucé à mon goût. Fait partie des must have pour ceux qui débutent le rum (ron 😈)

Peut-être une erreur de ma part ou pas, mais j'ai découvert ce rhum un peu tard. Ayant déjà goûté d'autres rhums plus complexe et plus savoureux celui-ci ne me paraît pas si exceptionnel que cela. Beaucoup trop doux, même si les saveurs de noix de coco, de vanille, de boisé et de caramel peut faire saliver, il n'en est pas moins trop doux pour moi. Si vous voulez vraiment une expérience gustative de noix de coco et vanille avec une touche de gingembre je conseillerai plus le Canerock aussi de la Maison Ferrand, c'est un spiced rhum mais au moins il a, de mon point de vue, plus de saveur.

All my Tastings and Scores are purely based on “Rums under £50”. I rarely look at Rums over £50 for my YouTube.

Mince alors... je le sent, le renifle dans tous les sens, mais le nez se veut si léger que j'ai du mal à le déterminer. J'abdique et me lance sur la dégustation : oh quelle surprise... rond, chocolaté, sucré et aux épices douces, un vrai bonbon !! La finale, bien que trop courte à mon gout, reste ce que je préfère, délicate et légèrement piquante. Globalement, un rhum suave et agréable mais qui mériterait un peu plus de relief pour véritablement attirer mon attention.

Un nez léger peut être trop subtile. La bouche est un régal : Un pain d'épices chocolat banane caramélisé et vanillé mais léger, et une finale chaude mais trop courte.

Gezuckerter Einsteiger Rum. Sehr süß, sehr viel Vanille, sehr viel Kokos, sehr künstlich und etwas dünne von der Konsistenz. Komplexität sucht man da natürlich vergeblich. Interessante Geschmäcker und einen langen Abgang ebenfalls. Unter seinen zuckerhaltige Konkurrenten schneidet er dennoch ganz okay ab. War auch für mich ein Einstieg in die Welt der interessanten Rums, inzwischen jedoch recht langweilig. Aber für Besuch, die mit Rum noch nicht viel zu tun haben das richtige Getränk.

Très bonne finale, noix de coco, vanille qui laisse un très bon goût en bouche, donne vraiment envie d y retourner
