This is a solid rum to start your demerara adventure. Very lovely nose with a good impact of the sherry barrel. In mouth it’s very soft, thin, diluted, uncomplex and unspectacular. The alcohol is integrated very well. The finish is delicious but short Price to value is actually very bad.

Dommage la réduction casse la longueur car c’est très bon sinon un bonbon d’épices.

The Sherry cask's influence is very discreet and elegant here. Slightly nutty in the nose, a little rancio in the empty glass before it gets completly mild butter toffee with a picogramm of salt, Yummi!. The palate delivers toffee, Capuccino, chocolate, salted liquorice/burnt sugar with a fennel/anise mix also but more in the background making this Diamond very round. You also get the european oak's spices that brings an herbal tingling edge. The whole being well balanced till the medium finish that i find very consistent despite the reduction. A solid starter for a Demerara line-up.
