“Day 7 of the Samples de luxe calendar. A Caroni nose at first, but tropical fruits take over with dark chocolate. So good! A tropical garden on the palate, with even fruits like cherry. Very ripe fruit. And right next door a well-stocked patisserie, and the pastry chef didn't skimp on the vanilla. A rum with everything! Very balanced, but perhaps a little too diluted. The empty glass brings out the smokiness and red port that had been masked until then. I lowered the score a little after tasting the Plenipotenzario, the higher ABV making all the difference. Tasted again and confirmed my first impression.”

“This cask matured in port casks is slightly better than the first release and I would have liked an extra bottle for my shelf. The nose is typical Barbadian with fruits and vanilla topped with chocolate and oak. The palate is more complex compared to the first release and once rested full of flavours. Sweet, fruity and spices in a balanced mix followed by cocoa and oak. The finish is medium long and sweet/fruity with added vanilla and oak.”
