„A very nice ten cane, better than the one from CDI I'd say. Fruity from nose to finish with spices and a delfining roasted barrel without it being too much. A touch of rubber and solvents are also there.“

„Un rhum qui donne une impression d’inachevé. Le nez est quelque peu timide et malgré quelques notes mentholées et caoutchouteuses agréables, les fruits et les épices se font plutôt discrets. Il manque de la profondeur et de la force au nez. Le constat est identique au palais. Mis à part quelques notes phénoliques supplémentaires (alcool et solvants notamment), la bouche peine à se dévoiler et à convaincre. Les quelques épices et touches empyreumatiques ne permettent pas d’élever le niveau. La longueur en bouche est éphémère, sommaire et simpliste. Quelques notes de pruneaux, des tanins et des notes épicées relèvent la finale, sans pour autant transcender le palais. Un rhum qui nécessite pas mal d’aération, mais qui reste décevant d’un point de vue global.“

„Nez plutôt boisé et sucré. Caoutchouc. Fruit. Une note rôtie ou torréfiée. Sensation qui se confirmenen bouche. Je ne lui ai sûrement pas donné assez de temps mais il m'a paru manquer de complexité.“

„Côté fruits rouges intéressant.. Cependant je ne trouve pas l'alcool super intégré.. Et ça manque de complexité.. Après j'ai pas goûté énormément de rhums trinidad mais pas mon préféré“

„Bourbon-Fans sind hier genau richtig, das Profil entspricht sehr einem fruchtigem, rundem und leckerem Bourbon. Vermutlich wurde hier re-casked, wofür neben dem starken Bourbon-Einfluss auch das spürbare, aber nicht unangenehme Holz mit seinem Einfluss spricht. Der Alkohol ist perfekt eingebunden, richtig dosiert und nach etwa 60 Minuten Belüftung entfaltet sich das Profil sehr ansprechend. Dieser Rum ist nicht all zu komplex, doch sehr gut nuanciert und eher elegant und feinsinnig wahrzunehmen. Wer nach kräftigen Ester-Bomben sucht, wird diesem Profil nur wenig abgewinnen können, doch wer spürbare Bourbon-Noten a la Foursquares oder auch ausdrucksstarke Rums der „spanischen“ Impressionen zu schätzen weiß, wird diesen Rum sicher mögen. Für mich ein ausgezeichneter Rum und von vielen klar unterbewertet, sicher auch aufgrund der aktuellen Mode, den spanischen Stil derzeit nicht all zu sehr zu würdigen und diesen langweilig zu finden. 89 Punkte für mich, als Bourbon Lover eine schöne Erfahrung.“
