“I have blind tasted actually held for much older. Found him rather dirty and clearly older and have him somewhere sorted in the direction of Caroni. From nut nougat cream I noticed today nix, that comes only now slowly😅Evaluation has only confirmed. Great what great rums are still being re-bottled today 🙂 One year aging. 65%. Gross. Nut nougat cream (no advertising) aromas, banana, pineapple. Ester slightly less than on the nose. A dry and exceedingly complex finish.I repeat One year aging. For this just VERY GOOD”

“A powerful nose in the solvents, the wood, then in mouth it takes all the papillae at once! Immediately chocolate, then spices, leather with a vegetable side. It is still strong! I then tried with a dash of water or I can identify the banana to caramel. I find the end funky in the spices. It is for me very successful! But we can feel too much the 65%!”
