In der Nase Honig, Vanille, Lakritz, verschmolzen mit einer schönen blumigen Note. Richtig los geht‘s dann im Mund. Karamell, viel Holz, Gewürze. Fett und ölig. Es folgt ein epischer Abgang… Ein toller Rum!

Ein Rum mit intensiver Holzigkeit und Frucht! Dabei aber sehr ausgeglichen … Der Alkohol ist perfekt eingebunden…. Ein wahrer Genuss!!!!!

The most amazing thing about this rum is how well they have integrated the ABV. You barely feel the ABV at all, wonder how they managed to do that :-) The nose is nice with fruit, oak and vanilla trailed by caramel, honey and nuts. I also get a very light note of grass. The palate extremely well balanced and complex. A very full bodied rum indeed. Fruit, oak and vanilla take the front trailed by caramel and honey. The finish is very long and intense with charred oak, spices, tobacco and dried fruit. A truly magnificent rum.

You will smell a lot of lovely notes of leather, banana, pineapple, prunes, prunes… all of them you‘ll find in the mouth too. The alcohol and also the wood is integrated very well! The finish is long, dry with a dominant taste o mocha.. lie behind and enjoy! Update: After ca. 30 minutes of rest the rum open up completely. A bit more smell of the barrel, honey, cedar wood. It mouth there is less spice and more fruity/floral. There are so many different tastes 😍 Amazing experience. Unfortunately it’s to expensive now…

kommt fast ölig daher, unglaublich konzentriert! An der Nase viele Gewürze, Maggi und Muskat, auch Dörrobst, Leder und Holzfass. Der Eindruck setzt sich am Gaumen nahtlos fort, Gewürze, Trockenfrüchte, röstige Noten, im Abgang Mokka und Gewürznelke. Guadeloupe at its best!

Fantastische Nase, komplexes Spektrum, das aber auch einen gehörigen Punch hat.

An der Nase tolle Noten von getrockneten Früchten, Dörroflaume, hin zu würzig-holzigen Noten. Gepaart mit Honig, Vanille und einer rauchigen Note. Am Gaumen auch extraklasse. Hier noch stärker in Richtung Gewürze, Leder, Vanille und Lakritze. Ein echtes Highlight. Leider extrem rar und extrem teuer - Schade!

Un icona del rum! Appena lo assaggi è davvero un concentrato di sapori e di intensità! Si fonde tutto perfettamente tra note di frutti secchi, caffè, legno e quel sentore di pelle molto piacevole. Un finale gustoso e infinito! Un rum davvero straordinario!

Whaou, quelle complexité, quel boisé, quelle astringence !! Un rhum marqué par le fût, extrêmement complexe, avec un gros gros boisé, qui s'accompagne de très belles notes fruités et des épices caractéristiques de la maison. Un rhum pour les grandes occasions.
