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.

Everything is already said in the other comments about this rather strange rum.

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%.

some low scores so far but I find this very tasty but also don't feel I need a bottle. somewhere between paranubes and agricole.

A nose of fruit liqueur, a more vegetal and bitter palate, and an identical and rather discreet finish.

Wonderful discovery of the toddy, a nice slap with this one

Interesting nose, but then the grog falls noticeably in taste. Alcohol is relatively poorly integrated, the overall flavor profile is too unround and closed.

Profile picture of user

On the nose canned corn, garlic, sake, fermented, floral, vegetable, pepper, sour fruits.On the palate light with fermented, sake, roasted garlic, vegetable, pepper, cucumber, savory and pumpkin. Peculiar, but not for me, too much garlic.

Sake, but different from Nine Leaves (very "contaminated"). Fermented fruit. Melon, cucumber, some overripe cheese on the finish.

super weird! on the nose very fruity, berry, fresh.... in the taste then cucumber, pumpkin, bitter melon and date oat cookies?! in addition strangely smoky and again discreetly reminiscent of mezcal and sake. in the finish dominates for me the cucumber and bitter melon, but is also somewhat creamy in the direction of cookie dough. pure cuts it off quite well in the daiquiri again dominates the bitterness and is just not a round thing. too bad.

3 Grogue im Vergleich: Barbosa, M&G, Vulcao… alle natürlich sehr ähnlich… Nase: pflanzlich, vergorene Frucht, vinegar. Wirkt ein klein wenig trockener und erdiger als die anderen. Sake und Mezcal, etwas mehr Richtung Sake. Rote Bete-Saft mit etwas Gurke und Sauerkraut daneben aber auch fruchtige Süße von Trauben oder Kirschen. Etwas speckiges kommt durch. Gaumen: harzig, leicht wässrig, Anis. Und deutlich pflanzlich. Einschlag von Sake und Mezcal. Etwas künstlich und leicht rauchig. Grogue bleibt etwas ganz spezielles, mit Clairin vergleichbar. Muss man mögen. Aber ich mag Herausforderungen

Le nez est charmeur sur la canne fermentée, c’est très floral. On est très loin de mes repères liés aux rhums agricoles. C’est terreux, comme après avoir tondu l’herbe mouillée. C’est frais et fruité sur les fruits rouges (la cerise), on retrouve un filet d’olive. On y retrouve un style Clairin, plutôt sucré et fumé-salé. Il n’est pas incroyable au nez et tire sur le saké, mais c’est plutôt sympa et on veut le gouter. En bouche, l'attaque est douce voir retenue. On est moins sur le fruité mais à nouveau sur l’herbacé. Il y a à nouveau cette note d’olive un peu comme chez Savanna.

Not mine at all - still smells nice fruity-grassy, but taste and finish pretty nasty, fermented and almost tipped.
