Ça reste un incontournable à avoir à proposer à ses amis même si le sucre prend trop le dessus.

It’s quite sweet, but not too sweet. I believe it’s one of the better entries to the rum world.

Demerara distillers have huge amount stock of rums in they wherehouses, from this point this is one of reasons why this brand are so available and for decent price versus honest age statement. If you like this, you can go to try Diplomatico reserva exclusiva.

Been using the 15 as a cocktail rum for a while but many swear by this one so I figured I’d try a bottle. Noticeably lighter body than the 15, quicker to dissipate and less dark in tone, but still very burnt and dark compared to most other rums of course. Versatile cocktail rum but when mixing I notice myself adding extra to get the same bite from the burnt notes compared to the 15.

Im Abgang leicht scharfe. Vorne auf der Zunge dafür sehr wenig

Un des mes premiers coups de cœur, une valeur sure. Vanille, tabac, fruits, bien licoreux et très accessible.

Good sip, but a bit one dimensional.
