“Strangely enough, it does not carry much through in the taste, which is really nice and buttery smooth. Fantastic balance between sweet and dry - Hint of vanilla and spice, where the spice carries through, but the vanilla leaves quickly, but here we have a nice long and pleasant aftertaste 🥃👍”

“At the price tag this is a pretty decent rum. The nose has overripe fruits and vanilla in the front and in the back i get nuts, caramel and some coconut. The palate is light and sweet with raisin and vanilla in the front and in the back i get nuts, toffee, molasses and some wood notes. The finish is medium long and sweet with vanilla and cocoa and a hint of cocoa/chocolate.”

“A soft and mellow rum, which envelops you in sweetness... the first nose, to my great surprise, is rather green, then after a few minutes, the delicious smell of candied fruit takes over. To the taste, it keeps its promises, round and regular. A small peppery note raises the whole in order to wake up the taste buds a bit... The final, all in delicacy, just gives desire to come back to it !”
