“A complex and well balanced rum in my mind, especially when thinking about the age. Very fruity with spices and herbal/minty/floral notes to balance it all. A bottle already gone from most shelves, but definitely worth a buy if you find it. Price to quality is very good.”

“On the nose at the beginning herbaceous-earthy, almost something unpleasant towards wet jute bag. After some standing time, then much fruitier, with watermelon and peach, and also a bit floral. In the background comes confectionery and young wood. On the palate, peach and herbal freshness. The finish is rather short. In diplomatic parlance, one would probably say an 'interesting' rum.”

“In this rum I was initially ambivalent!In the nose fresh and sour buttery with a portion of ester !On the palate then a kind of artificiality with gum flavor, later joins a sour vegetable note with herbal essenzz! The rum spreads creamy oily in the mouth, the alcohol is well integrated, the finish is short and unspectacular!After a second tasting I was then sure:The rum is inharmonious and not mine”
