„Another nice tasting finished, this time with rums from the Domenican Republic. In my mind this rum will be too sweet for many, but a good rum none the less. The complexity is hidden under the sweetness and in my mind it should have been amped up with a little more proof. Price tag is really good compared to what you get.“

„Bel emballage mais rhum décevant, il est vrai que son pris est bas. Donc assez bon rapport qualité-prix. Il manque de longueur, de profondeur, de puissance et même de fruité. Mais il n’a rien non plus de désagréable.“

„Nez très agréable le caramel et le boisé font forte impression. En bouche l'attaque est douce, le boisé et le caramel restent présents... Ensuite plus rien. Une légère note de fût perdure à la finale mais de façon éphémère.“

„Ein leichter, milder Rum ohne Ecken und Kanten, der Rum für jede Gelegenheit. Leichte Vanille und leichter Geschmack vom Fass, so auch im Geruch. Insgesamt gut, kann man nichts verkehrt machen und darf in der Bar nicht fehlen.“
