“If you know the Foursquare Port Cask Finish, then this one is similar but more subtle in general. A nice complex rum with natural sweetness to it.”

“A varnish blended with fruit on the nose, marzipan. Discretion and elegance, a fresh, pastry-like quality. A soft, balanced, woody and slightly diluted attack on the palate. A short but still elegant finish. Pineapple and monoi in the empty glass. A rum that's no competition beast, but one that knows how to seduce. I love it!”

“Some port influence, light orange note, marzipan, alcohol not particularly well integrated despite the dilution. Seems a bit young.”
