“Yes, this is the best of the four rums in the small series. It's probably due to the higher ABV. The rum is somewhat fuller-bodied and more aromatic than the other three. But it won't be my favorite either. Edit: I made a small blend from the leftover samples of the four Ecuadorians (i.e. tipped them together). Tastes better than any of the four individually! 😊 (but without rating)”

“Franconian Tasting Gang Wenn nur mit Cola und Eis. Edit: Diese Aussage muss ich leider zurücknehmen. Es ist glaube ich so ziemlich mit meine einzige Rum Cola gewesen, die ich bisher weggeschüttet habe, weil ich diese nicht runterbekommen habe.”

“Unfortunately disappointing. In my opinion, it is completely overpowering, the oxidation has taken over and a musty, herbal note has become dominant, which robs me of any drinking pleasure. Regrettable.”
