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 ! 👏

La mélasse fermentée donne une très grande variété d'esters empyreumatiques, bien complétée par un vieillissement en fûts. Une très belle découverte pour les amateurs de style anglais boisé. La finale est extra riche et longue.

Un jus de banane puissant et fort agréable. Édit : 2e dégustation plus aboutie. On n'est pas juste sur un jus de banane. Un nez pâtissier, bourré d'esters et de fruits mûrs. Une bouche très puissante, avec de la banane omniprésente accompagnée d'une gourmandise caramélisée, de touches de réglisse. Un côté iode également. De l'olive. Une finale iodée encore. Intense. Pas un rhum de tous les jours. Mais c'est très bon.

Terrible ! Une surprise auquelle je ne m'attendais pas. Quel rhum superbe. On pense que le nez est excellent mais la bouche est une véritable claque de douceur et d'arôme ! Très très bon, un rhum avec une profondeur aromatique impressionnante.

This is an amazing Grand Arome where the pure cane juice high-esther art is on full display and served straight from the barrel. For the tiki lovers out there this also happens to be a key ingredient to the greatest Mai Tai recipe of all time. For the full history go read the Smuggler’s Cove book but here’s the cheat sheet: Mai Tai (secret original) -3 cl Tropically aged pot still Jamaican rum with lots of age on it ( e.g. Hampden 8 year) -3 cl Aged grand arome rhum traditionnel (e.g. Ferroni brut de fut grand arome) -2.25 Lime juice -1.5 orange curacao -0.75 orgeat -0.75 sugar syrup Shake with ice and pour directly to glass. Garnish with mint sprig. Enjoy you glorious hedonists 😉

Une vraie petite bombe, le côté grand arôme prend un sacré goût de boost et devient un magnifique rhum de dégustation, j’adore!

Excellent GA de Ferroni! Un peu trop porté sur le bois en bouche pour atteindre les 90 mais superbe complexité pour un rhum de 5 ans. Dégustation en express. Mériterait plus de temps pour voir l’évolution.
