“Reminiscent of a T.D.L with some REV through the mint/black tea note. Adds a great and heavy barrel influence due to the tropical aging.After some time grapefruit, herbs and some glue come in. The alcohol is very well integrated. An almost endless finish. Lots to discover here. Great. My #2 from the Hearts Collection!”

“Quite exciting. A rum that already has a lot of barrel influence and therefore recognizable signs of age - but has not yet fully matured beyond its zenith and is drowning in bitterness and an exuberant wood influence. On the nose, heavy notes of glue, wood, tea and dark and sweet fruit. There is plenty of mint on the palate, as well as tart hints of leather and spices. It has something, even if I would have liked to have tasted the distillate with 2-3 years less tropical maturation.”

“Ui I should have struck with a bottle...Wonderfully fruity and fresh 😯😯I had not expected. Parallels to Guyana REV the balanced heavy fruit, herbs with wood one recognizes here again. ... also mint and even some funk is to smell and taste, great !!! Nice surprise!”
