“This VSOP from HSE is also good: more discreet nose with chocolate, wood and caramelized fruit. In the mouth, the woody profile continues, adding spicy and earthy notes. Roasty coffee and chocolate on the finish to wood and spice and some sweet caramel.”

“Un rhum VSOP très agréable. Les notes boisées, épicées et fruitées se confondent bien. La bouche continue sur la même lancée, très souple et onctueuse. La même note épicée, fruitée et boisée revient en finale. Une bonne référence pour les VSOP.”
