“Nose and finish come with intense citrus notes. Palate dominated by dried fruits. Not very heavy on „classic“ Versialles notes you would expect from a VSG ie somewhat of a weird animal. Nevertheless a nice expression. Oxidation changes the profile quite noticabley. Less citrus and more dried fruits as well as Versailles notes on the nose. Also nice in it’s „evolved“ form.”

“I have the entire series in more than one copy and I really like them because the releases are good in general. Love the citrus note from nose to finish and the wood and tannins with other fruits in the mix. Lightly dry on the palate. The flavours are still in the glass the day after 😊”

“A rum decried by the RumX community and praised by Serge Valentin. So I had to buy it and taste it. I was rather disappointed when I opened the bottle, but I'm familiar with the phenomenon... A nose of old leather, flambéed banana, brown sugar and tea, with good concentration. A slightly peaty palate with fat and brown sugar. The finish is abrupt, but honey and cask reappear after a while. The empty glass is splendid with previously hidden aromas. Apart from the fact that this rum is too lively when opened, I find nothing but good in it. It's perfectly balanced and deep. It could have a slightly broader aromatic palette, but then it would be one of the great Demerara rums. Buy it before it disappears from the shelves.”
