„I think this one would do very well in a cola with a slice of lime, but that's something I'll try later. The nose is fresh and fruity with grass and floral . The palate is light, fresh and oily with raisins, grass and floral notes as well as a hint of mint. The finish is medium long and light with fruits and grassy notes.“

„Does not have to be drunk neat. The alcohol is not particularly well integrated. I miss the fruits here.“

„So pure the thing is unfortunately really quite boring I must say, sorry ... Very one-dimensional, something hay, trust and lemon peel, as well as chamomile more does not happen here even after 30 minutes. Hardly any fruit, no funk. Even in the daiquiri happens here not really much to justify a price of 60€ for a white rum, whose original takamaka bottlings partly only 20-30€ cost. Here I am really very disappointed. Too bad!“

„Makes me think of a sweeter version of a Clairin World Champioship. Really good 😁“

„Nosing reveals a very mineralic profile. Springwater, fresh rain on dusty stones, old iron tools and weathered leather, chalk. Accompanied by light fruits, foremost grapes, and ofcourse agricole notes. The taste is heavy on minerals and freshly cut grass. Some green olive brine with herbs and a tiny bit of flowers. Finishes very quick, dry and -again- mineralic. And even though it’s 56%, it feels light. I would not recommend sipping this, but I tried this in a couple of tikis where the harsh agricole flavours do have their place. That being said, a barspoon of this makes a great Fay Wray.“

„Esters assez doux (par rapport au jamaican), canne plutôt grasse/sucrée, ça se boit tout seul Au goût c’est fruité surtout, je dirai peut être pamplemousse ! Notes minérales également, et un peu d’herbes. Au final, léger mais très intéressant ! On refait le lineup ce soir, intéressant !“

„Al naso è vellutato, nonostante i sentori agrumati, accompagnati da lievi maturati di frutta, camomilla secca e un po' di aringhe/olive. Al palato è delicatissimo dimostra 10 gradi in meno, si fanno avanti i sentori floreali e fruttati misti a una dolcezza di canna fine. Arrivano poi nel finale un po' di medicinali, fieno ed eucalipto. Mi ricorda in un certo senso il Chalong Bay wild fermentation. È un finale molto corto e leggero, privo di carattere, mi aspettavo qualcosa di più colorato.“
