“Very gourmand on the nose, with notes of vanilla, cane and wood. Sweet and engaging. On the first palate, the promises of the nose remain, with some dried fruit. Then a discreet bitterness intrudes on the finish. The sensation is balanced by a lively, spicy edge. Caramel. Slightly roasted notes. Wood and vanilla. A rather pleasant agricultural experience. Edit: still lacks punch. The significant reduction leaves a watery sensation. On an early line-up, it's still very pleasant.”

“The best rhum that I have tasted so far on Mauritius. Unfortunately, hardly to be found here, since largely displaced by the (m. E. not quite as good) Special Edition 2022 6y with 45%. Didn't think a sugarcane juice chamarel would outshine a molasses New Grove on my palate, but it was the case. Very pleasant, surprisingly deep rhum. With a few percent more it could have been the rage, but even so it would leave standard rum drinkers beady eyed.”
