Another good bottling from this company. The nose is fruity with some vanilla and chocolate topped with wonderful oak. The palate is well balanced and complex with fruit and spices, lightly sweet with a tad of chocolate, tobacco and oak. The finish is nice and long with dried fruit, vanilla and some coffee ending on a nice note of oak.

sehr leckerer foursquare, schöne Kaffee & Kakao Note! Das ist definitiv daily easy sipping material. Extrem rund und süffig. Das Portwein Fass harmoniert sehr gut mit dem Rum ohne ihn süßer zu machen, bringt dagegen schöne Noten von Feigen, Zitrusfrüchten, Tabak und Tannine mit ein. Sehr geile Nummer.

Un nez un peu fermé et une bouche trop sur le vent. Ça n'est pas désagréable mais pas vraiment à mon goût.

1er nez sur un leger solvant mais qui prend toute la place, après 5 minutes d'aération le nez s'ouvre magnifiquement sur le caramel chocolaté, sur un fond de bois ciré. Enfin viennent les fruits dont la coco et une impression de fruits rouges. Génial ce nez. En bouche, on attaque sur un petit piment (ou poivre) et le bois. Comme pour le nez viennent ensuite les notes gourmandes de toffe vanillé avec le caramel dominant. La coco s'invite à la fête comme pour le nez. La finale est longue plus épicée, boisé sur le tabac, la vanille et le caramel. Un top rum.
