How does this rum taste?

The Lontan Rhum Vieux Grand Arôme offers a unique, smokey flavor reminiscent of Islay Scotch, with a rich, dark character enhanced by a Port finish. While it's slightly thin at 46% ABV, it presents a delightful nose of herbal, menthol, and ripe banana notes. A daily sipper with a fair price for its limited availability.

“Grand Arôme der eher kleinen Sorte … ein Grand Arömchen quasi. Etwas dünn durch den niedrigen ABV aber schön dunkel im Charakter – wohl durch das Port Finish. Netter Sipper aber keine Savanna Geschmacksexplosion”
