“Hallelujah! DOK to the power of three. After the initial shock, this astringency bomb is growing on me more and more ... er ... the palate. What do they actually do in the industry with so many esters? 😉”

“Masterclass mit Alexandre Gabriel am 04.04.2024. Plantation wird Planteray. Also dieser Rum war die absolute Bombe von allen. Ein bißchen Zahnarzt, Lösungsmittel und als ich ein wenig mit den Resten gespielt habe, kam dieser Krasse künstliche Erdbeer-HubbaBubba Geschmack hervor, der gefühlt Stunden anhielt. Ich will mehr davon!!!”

“This is insane stuff! Very, very nice. We can only hope to get our hands on bottlings of this to experiment and enjoy more of this. Also any aged casks obviously would be a blast to try. Thanks to Alexandre and the RumX Team for the masterclass!”
