“#4033 This is a very well balanced rum and I think the price is more than fair on this bottle. Fruity and kind of soft on the nose despite the ABV. I love the roasted wood notes and also the floral touch to the profile. Draws really nice curtains in the glass and the empty glass has light leather and coffee notes.”

“A superb brut de fût rum with everything to please. The nose is voluptuous, gourmand with spices, cocoa and coffee, slightly agricultural with sugarcane aromas, elegant with a lovely woodiness and delicate with discreet fruitiness. A harmonious rum on the olfactory level. On the palate, an intense, complex and subtle rum is revealed. Beautiful roasted notes of walnut and coffee join spices, wood and tannins, while floral, agricultural and fruity flavors add freshness and aromatic variety. The alcohol is superbly well integrated. The long finish is darker and drier than the rest of the profile. Prunes and spices provide a warm, gourmand and comforting profile. A well-balanced rum, full of finesse, well-controlled and without the slightest hint of aggressiveness. An excellent reference in the top-range of agricultural rums, at a relatively affordable price.”

“Tolle Nase mit „haben wollen“ Effekt! Ein fruchtiger Agricole mit kräftigen Klebstoffnoten. Am Gaumen dann aber für meinen Geschmack viel zu holzig. Etwas zu lange im Fass verblieben… Ich habe noch eine ungeöffnete Flasche von dem Brut de Fut 2007 und goffe dort auf das gleiche Profil mit weniger Holz.”
