“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”

“Nose first dry, spicy and citrus, then very mineral on the palate, fruity complex. On apricot I would not have come up by itself. But I'm still at the very beginning of my sensory ability.”
