“A Jamaican blend that starts with a nose full of greed and flavors, combining tropical fruits, nuts, solvents, smoky and caramelized notes with a nice balance. Powerful in the mouth, the rum remains faithful to what is in the nose, with the same greediness. The alcohol is well integrated, even if the first sip is quite strong. The finish is long and wants to be warm and sweet, the apricot prolonging the pleasure. A very nice blend.”

“Interesting combination! However, it is not quite clear to me why one fabricates such a blend. At the beginning and in the middle part, the typical astringent Clarendon notes come out, in the finish rather the Hampden notes.”

“Ich fand den Blend recht interessant. Die Clarendon und Hampden Komponenten sind klar rausschmeckbar – gehen aber leider nicht ganz so harmonisch ineinandet über, wie man es sich wünschen würde. Das ist aber Jammern auf hohem Niveau – immer noch sehr gut”
