“A pleasant rum, perhaps good for a Ti' Punch, but nothing extraordinary. Medium persistence and in my opinion too much hint of sake and a very distant smokiness. Unsuitable for tasting at a certain level, it remains a lighthearted rum. Still, it is always good to experiment with new distillates. Rum from sugarcane juice with 10% from molasses.”

“Not bad, reminds me a bit of stuff like Paranubes. Very fresh with olives and vegetal notes. Friend says the finish reminds him of oysters (don’t like oysters so I can’t really tell) Was told that it’s distilled with a wood fire, which makes for an interesting story. Seems more powerful, but it says 45%.”
