“Considering the age and price tag this is a very good rum. Fruity with wonderful spices that makes it live up to the "Grand Arôme". Very intense in the flavours with a hint of licorice and mint. Price to quality is very good.”

“Étant un grand fan des high ester je ne peux que adorer celui-ci. Il est extrêmement aromatique et complexe, on y trouve une belle dose de fruits (Tropicale / Sec) avec une super gourmandise (Caramel brûlé / Brioche / Créme / Pâtissier / Pain d'épices), les épices bien que douces sont plutôt présentent et accompagne a merveille cette gourmandise (Vanille / Cannelle / Girofle / Muscade / Réglisse). Avec tout cela, la longue fermentation apporte énormément de notes empyreumatiques qui s'armonisent parfaitement avec le reste (Caoutchouc / Goudron / Acétique / Cuivre / Fumé / Tourbe / Plastique). L'olive iodé en saumure est bien présente du début à la fin et c'est certainement la seule fausse note de ce rhum a mon goût. Wow quel rum, c'est tout à fait mon style ! Bravo Guillaume ! 👏”

“I had to look this up after my first taste, as it did taste so much different than other Melasse Rums I thought it might be an Agricole after all. Quite fruity in a way I was not expecting and must be refined in a second tasting. I liked it very much. Second tasting: Thinking I found the reason it is so different, Caramel and malt go with grapes and herbs, but also some fresh sweetness. Are all Grand Aromes along those lines? Worth checking this out...”
