“Certainly not the best HV release, but compared to many recent releases, this is already a good rum. I adjust my rating upward by one point.”

“Day 1 calendar Samples de Luxe. Pale yellow color.On the nose banana compote, Jamaican funky, rum raisins.In the mouth quite a lively attack with alcohol and tropical fruits. Nice aromas but rather one-dimensional, like a fruit alcohol.A long finish, a little more interesting than the mouth. A very integrated wood. A very nice rum, to be tasted again after a little oxidation.”
