How does this rum taste?

A robust, harmonious explosion of chocolate, caramel, and tropical fruits with a warm, spicy kick. Despite high ABV, it's not overly complex but well-rounded with lingering woody, sweet and tannic notes. A tropical gem, if slightly formidable for some.

“Already on the nose with the aroma of polished oak, vanilla and caramel so often found in tropically aged Demerara rums - and the promise is maintained on the palate. The aforementioned notes are joined by pepper, chocolate, leather and subtle licorice. All in all, I only miss a bit of freshness to get the rating even higher. The quality, however, remains exceptional, very nice bottling.”

“I love the tropical maturation! With this rum you can taste the maturation, it goes in the direction of Velier Demerara. The only drawback - it lacks perhaps a little complexity.”

“A nice discovery at Isautier. A well-balanced rum, with very spicy, woody notes. The ripe tropical fruits and the pastry side. Both complex and delicious. A very long finish.”
