“Clearly milder and more drinkable than the 11y old without finish. The additional 20 months in the Armagnac finish have softened the rum perfectly and taken him some of the edges. The 11y is clearly more funky and intense, this one is clearly more harmonious but still with enough power. Exciting are the light peachy / apricot notes with eucalyptus and dark chocolate with cappuccino, cinnamon, nutmeg and nuts, as well as some lemon zest and at the very end comes back to me the characteristic menthol / grapefruit peel note. I also like very well, almost a little better depending on the mood!😁🥳Anyway, both bottlings are imho absolute Mauritius Gray's benchmarks!👌🏽”

“The farmer's palate says:Clearly softer than his little, untamed eleven-year-old brother. The latter's powerful performance is nevertheless a tad more pleasing.Genial pair of brothers.”

“A nose length ahead of the eleven-year-old, here with an additional Armagnac finish. The same brings a few new flavors into play and softens the somewhat rough finish slightly, but here too I lack a tad of balance for an even higher score. However, a positively surprising release remains, which is one of the best Mauritius rums to date.”
