“Very noble profile, although extremely bitter. Cocoa, coffee, leather, barrel - multilayered dark notes paired with some dried fruit and subtle sweetness. A rum for which you have to take your time, but which is worth it.”

“This is a true masterpiece of a rum. Almost impossible to find but lucky for me one of my suppliers had one tucked away. Tried it and virtually fell in love on the nose alone. A perfectly balanced rum with a nose delivering on the taste. If you find a bottle it will set you back pretty badly 😊”
