“Nase: Der Alkohol ist kaum wahrnehmbar! Es überwiegen holzige würzige Noten, sehr angenehm mild. Am Gaumen ist der Rum cremig weich und verteilt sich gut im Mundraum! Es überwiegen wieder holzigen Töne, leicht bitter und etwas Teergeschmack! Auch hier ist der Alkoholgehalt kaum spürbar! Ihm haftet etwas leicht speckig, geröstetes an. Im Abgang setzt sich die holzige würzige Note fort! Er bleibt so mittellang ..... Ein guter Rum, aber für mich nicht überragend und deshalb m. E. zu teuer”
