“Holy moly the claps neatly! But very horny and intense. Strong mocha, vanilla bean, raisin, discreet sherry and rum raisins, dark chocolate with fleur de sel and espresso beans and then again coconut and banana chips. Only the alcohol could be better integrated.”

“A rum that lacks balance. Too woody and closed for my taste. The alcohol lacks integration. Apart from the Patrimonio, which I don't know, this is the one I liked least of the Velier-Foursquare series.”

“As a Foursquare skeptic, I can only say: Tastes amazingly good to me! A great rum with bite, character and depth. Gladly again. 😋”
