“Un petit rhum de base axé sur la douceur. Le nez dévoile des arômes de miel, de caramel, d’épices et de fruits (banane, noix) avec une touche de bois et d’alcool. Clairement pas le profil le plus original, ni le plus transcendant. Les saveurs en bouche ne sont pas désagréables : les fruits, combinés au caramel, au chocolat, aux notes rôties et sucrées avec un soupçon de notes terreuses forment une jolie composition. Toutefois la dilution est trop perceptible et ternit le produit final. La finale revient sur la douceur des épices, des notes rôties et fruitées avec une influence caramélisée et mielleuse. Les rhums du Cambodge pourraient avoir un beau potentiel s’ils n’étaient pas brimés de la sorte hélas.”

“This one intrigued me because it's a 100% pot still rum (which I love) that is aged for at least 2 years in first oak barrels and then sherry casks (also love) in Cambodia. I did not even know that rum was made in Cambodia. A very agreeable rum that has a rich and quite sweet taste but in a way that does come together nicely. Bit suspicious that there might be some sugar added here though, but even if so very well done and let's hope more stuff from Cambodia can come into this market.”
