How does this rum taste?

This unique Madeira rum intrigues with its complex blend of raisin, woody spice, and a hint of bitter grape skins. Its bold, dry profile, with notes of tobacco and menthol, divides opinion. Best enjoyed after ample breathing time.

“I have a problem with this rum: I can't decide whether I like it or not. Every time I taste it, I get a new impression. The nose is always more or less the same: grapes, wood, spices. You can tell it's an agricultural wine. On the palate, the grape is very present. The woodiness is strong. The rum is dry and heavy. It's halfway between an agricole and some of Guyana's molasses. But I often find it very unpleasantly bitter. The bitterness of grape skins. It's frustrating because when I don't have that sensation, I love its power. The rum clearly benefits from VERY long aeration. Edit: very woody and bitter finish. Decidedly, hard to make up one's mind. Edit edit: oxidation is this bottle's friend! Edit edit edit: farewell. I would have loved you anyway! That woody farmer!”

“Excellent RQP au Portugal. Épices, grosse réglisse sous toutes ses formes, fraîcheur de la canne, puis emprise du bois local, vin muté, raisins secs, limite collants en bouche. Du menthol. Une forme de torréfaction inhérente aux saveurs insulaires de Madère. Longue finale, bousinée et légèrement astringente. Le verre vide sent la boîte à cigares à plein nez. Un must dans sa catégorie. Ne plaira pas à tout le monde. 86+”
