I think this rum is one of the most misunderstood ones in the market. I've been travelling in Japan and tried a lot of their spirits and it with that in mind I scored this rum. The nose starts off with whisky and sake, yes, sake. Then the vegetal and grassy notes appear with some oak and caramel. The palate is light yet complex with sake and Agricole notes. Later you have sake and the vegetal notes mixed with smoke and oak. The finish is medium long with sake and vegetal notes to it. The price is high for such a young rum, but nothing from Japan is cheap.

Goûté une seule fois et ça ne m’a pas plu, alcoolique au nez et en bouche. Parfum de saké, à croire qu’il y a un problème… Puis, un peu mieux avec des notes herbacées. Il n’a rien d’un rhum tropical.

Es gibt neben Nine Leaves ja doch ganz leckere Tropfen aus Japan. In der Nase geht er in Richtung Demerararum á la Pussers. Fühlt sich im Mund zunächst an wie Agricole, der dann mit dreckiger Melasse vermischt wurde. Für mich ergibt das Aromen von Kaffee, Karamell und dunkler Schokolade. Im Abgang merkt man dann warum es hier Punkteabzug gibt, mit 40% ist dieser Rum leider ziemlich schwach hinten raus und ein paar % mehr hätten den durchaus leckeren Aromen die notwendige Kraft verliehen.

Off beat, crisp, clear. Has a shochu element. Dances to it's own tune, but nice.

Plus clivant y a pas !!! Un véritable ovni, si t’aimes les extra terrestres c’est gagné sinon tu pars en courant. Un jour j’aime bien, un jour j’aime pas, une véritable curiosité qui ne laissera pas indifférent mais qui ne fera sûrement pas l’unanimité.

Niet veel speciaals aan

Nase: Erinnert an Agricole, sehr würzig und deutliche Zuckerrohraromen. Gaumen: Würzig warm zu Beginn, dann Kräuter, Tee. Es folgt Schokolade. Abgang: Die pflanzlichen Aromen sowie die Würze halten sich lange, bevor leichte Rauchnoten durchschimmern. Fazit: Ausgefalleneres Exemplar. Es überwiegen pflanzliche und kräuterige Noten mit einem Hauch Schoko. Mir gefällt der Japaner.

Pas du Rhum, plutôt du Saké

Doux et léger. Peu aromatique globalement. Sur le whisky

Rhum très clivant. Mérite une longue aération car l’évolution est assez impressionnante avec l’oxydation. Grande complexité olfactive.
