The palate is complex and creamy with fruit and vanilla. On the back i get caramel, varnish and some barrel. The finish is medium to long with oak and vanilla topped with a bit of citrus and marzipan.”

“Original impressions from 2017 rum calendar. Nose: **** Taste: *** Overall: *** I have tasted a few more rums since this one back in 2017 and this one deserves a higher grade than my first impression. Nose is just what I like in rums, dried fruits with vanilla. The marsala casks is there with a nice winebarrel touch. Maybe a hint of oranges after it has settled. Palate is strong but expected at 55 ABV, here are the spices and tropical fruits most notable. A pleasant sipper with a nice finish of barrel and spices with a small splash of sweetness.”
