Spirit of Art no. 2 boasts a bourbon-like profile with winter spices and charred fruits. While not overly complex, its woodiness and tannins are prominent. The integration of alcohol varies; some find it lacking. A solid, yet unexceptional rum.

“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.”
