“This is one of the bottles I got today and I ordered it because I was curious. My wife is Japanese and this I have tried good spirits from Japan. This rum, despite its young age, was a big surprise. There is some sake and wine to it especially if rested for 15-20 minutes. Lightly fruity with barrel and nuts. There is a light hint of marzipan and chokolate on the palate.”

“I still like the nose a little better than the Encrypted III, the IV comes with honey sweetness, pastry and buttercream, the III on the other hand is a little nuttier, more with a sour (red wine) impact.”
