“Nez sur les fruit très mûr, légèrement boisé il y a aussi un côté apre et souffré pas très agréable ( à mon goût ) En bouche ce n'est pas terrible non plus, même trame que le nez avec un alcool pas très bien intégré. La longueur est courte a moyenne avec un côté saumure et olive”

“Sample no.20 of the 24 days of rum calendar 2022. Harsh on the nose with tequila and port. After it sets more notes of vanilla and dried fruits comes forward. On the palate there is a fermented overripe taste of dried fruits and barrel.”

“No, no, no. It tastes worse than it smells. The only substance that I can smell, and this is overriding every other tones I can sense, is a crushed penicilin pill. Taste is rather harsh with earthy/vegetal tones supported by chemical synthetic taste that leaves a chalky feeling on the tongue. Only mild sweetness (but it is there). However, I am not a fan. The biggest plus is for the length of finish which is really long. Too bad for me because I don't like the taste of this rum. God that chalky feeling on the tongue is weird.”
