“On the nose a real tropical fruit bomb, unfortunately, the alcohol too strong to feel.On the palate then at the first sip completely whacky mess chili, kiwi, mango. But the whole rather very untamed and little round. At the second sip, the spice predominates on the palate, but then this idiosyncratic chili spicy fruit flavor returns. Definitely worth a try this bottling, very idiosyncratic. Now I'm hungry, where's my wok? 🌶️🥭”

“Beautiful, young, wild bottling.The tropical storage is clearly noticeable. For the money, a great rum for advanced drinkers looking for an interesting change.Despite all the different flavor impressions incredibly smooth and oily on the palate. At the end it scratches unfortunately something, alcohol integration not optimal.Solid PLV”

“Overall one of the best molasses based rum from Guadeloupe that I’ve tasted. Sample X a collaboration between Kintra and Rum Mercenary have released this molasses based rum produced by the Bonne Mère distillery, located in Sainte-Rose, Guadeloupe. Bonne Mère started as a sugar factory back in 1863, but since 1973 it’s just the distillery that’s still in operation. This 6 yo single cask rum has matured for 3 years in Guadeloupe, before being transferred to an ex-bourbon cask in Europe for 3 years more of continental aging before bottled brut de fût without cold filtration in 2021 in total of 242 bottles at 59,6%.”
