“I don't know what's wrong with me today, but this rum doesn't knock my socks off either. I find it somehow ordinary, although I have to admit that the alcohol is very, very well integrated. After a longer period of standing, the rum becomes more accessible and I increasingly taste something like sweet cardboard. The subjectively perceived improvement after breathing for a long time just manages to get the rum over the 80-point mark. I'll have to taste it again. But I certainly don't need a whole bottle.”

“A beautifully diverse continental Port Mourant with lovely ripeness, tea, herbs (thyme), vanilla, anise/licorice, wood, dried fruit, a slightly buttery, thick nose and lots of salt and umami on the palate. I like the nose a little better.”
