Though this is a 94 proof it is really well balanced and you can hardly taste the alcohol. A better version of the Exclusiva with far more nuances and variety of spices.

Eine Abfüllung, die für mich Premium sein will, es aber nicht ist. Gefärbt, um Alter zu suggerieren, gezuckert, um Reife vorzugaukeln. Die Nase sehr einladend, verspricht sie einen alten Spanier, der ordentlich Holz abbekommen hat, mit ordentlich Gewürzen. Hier aber auch schon eine Spur künstlich, süß (ich möchte hier ausdrücklich keine künstlichen Aromen unterstellen, es wirkt jedoch unrund…). Am Gaumen zu dünn (warum verdünnt man so etwas?) und wiederum unharmonisch. Einzelne Aromen dominieren, binden sich nicht gut ins Gesamtergebnis ein. Dazu eine doch deutliche Süße, die gegen ordentlich Holz ankämpft und dessen Bitterkeit glatt zieht. Für mich absolut Nichts, was ich kaufen muss oder gar kaufen sollte. Geschmacklich nicht mein Ding und der Preis fernab jeder Realität….

I don’t think it’s really living up to the high price, but still a must have at my Spanish shelf.

I own this bottle and it is still really good but with its low ABV I unfortunately can’t give it more points. Again I would have loved been able to taste it before the watering down.

bon mais pour le prix n'arrive pas à la cheville d'un ''vrai'' rhum et l'emballage (l"habit) ne fait pas le rhum (le moine)
