“This one hits the nail and one of the highest proof rums that I tried where the proof is extremely well integrated. The nose is dominated by alcohol in the beginning but it settles after around 20 minutes. The you get a fruity and spice nose with toffee and cocoa/chocolate. The palate is an explosion of flavours where the barrel/oak mingles very well with caramel, chocolate and brown sugar. The finish is veeeeery long and mildly sweet with oak. This one is close to my favourite La Isla Bonita :-)”

“For a long time, this was my favorite rum of all time. But time and taste change, and being more into high esters now, I need to lower this from the top grade of 100.”
