After resting this rum for a while it releases very nice flavours. The ABV is well integrated and you get the roasted/smoky wood notes from the long aging. Lightly fruity with a nice touch of esters and vanilla/caramel. Very long and dry finish. Price to quality is OK in my mind.

Un très bon fiji.. Avec ce côté brûlé toasté en fin de bouche qui détonne !!
