Marginally better than their Dark Chocolate. The only thing that helps it up a little is the higher ABV.

Small hints of coffee, cocoa… low body/character. Wouldn‘t recommend anyone else to buy a full bottle!

Don't know if i had just a bad batch, or that is how it should be. This is quite a weird rum, definitely young alcohol, oily, thick and has a strong smell of medical iodine that is similar to peated whisk(e)y ! Besides the iodine there are faint hints of sweetness, resembling honey. Aftertaste is next to none, except iodine. In summary, it's a rum that has more similarities with peated whisk(e)y then with rum. Not great for sipping or mixing.

Wasn't expecting much of this rum, the bottle is really nice. Nose: very interesting actually, feels like a rhum agricole or leaning that way, very floral and herbal. Taste: a bit disappointing on the taste, was expecting more herbal flavor after the nose. Finish: the aftertaste is better, definitely feels a bit like a rhum agricole. Overall good price for a nice looking and sturdy bottle. The rum is not the best but can go well with some cocktail.

Sehr starker Abgang nach Holz und Kohle. Schmeckt sehr stark verbrannt.
