Was für ein toller Rum. Die Beerenaromatik hat mir sehr gut gefallen. Die Holznoten sind sehr gut. Auch der Alkohol ist sehr gut eingebunden.

Typical agricole in the nose with roasted almonds, fruits, cherry, orange peal, red wine, spice and a dominant smell of oak. Mild and complex but delicious in mouth where you‘ll find all tastes from before. The Finish is medium long with tastes of cinnamon, wood, sugarcane, sour cherry and grass at the end 😜 Very pleasant to drink. This one needs some time to fully open. Alcohol could be integrated better. Nose: Sherry, red wine, agricole, barrel, oak, spicy, oak, nutmeg, roasted almonds, fruity, orange peal, red fruits, sour cherry, wine gum, sugarcane, chocolate Mouth: complex, mild, intense, delicious, agricole, fruity, sour cherry, plum, grapes, toffee, cinnamon, woody(oak) mocha, grass, sugarcane, tannins Finish: Medium long, sour cherry, grass, sugarcane, woody, cinnamon, coffee

Sehr gelungener Karukera, dem die Alkoholstärke gut tut. Holz, Würze und milde Süsse ergänzt durch schwere Fruchtnoten - prima ausbalanciert.

Erste Assoziation in der Nase: Rotwein! Dunkle Traube, Tannine vom Fass. Fruchtig-würzig mit Sauerkirsche und Johannisbeere. Dagegen ledrig und trockenes Holz mit etwas Muskat. Am Gaumen die Kirsche im Vordergrund, diesmal aber ehr Süßkirsche. Hat aber auch wieder etwas vom dunklen Rotwein. Der trockener Zuckerrohr Geschmack kommt durch Im Abgang noch immer Kirsche aber mit deutlich grasigem Zuckerrohr. Der Alkohol ist sehr gut eingebunden. Rinder und schmackhafter Rum.

Un beau rhum, bien fait, puissant mais pas trop, avec une belle note d'orange qui sort de l'ordinaire. Mais c'est néanmoins la seule originalité et on le regrette un peu venant de Velier

Un beau rhum ! Il mérite du temps pour s’ouvrir et une 2e dégustation.
