“Overall an quite interesting rum that works well neat as well as in drinks and cocktails that I tasted at the Cane Rum Society in Stockholm which is the bar in Europe with largest amount of different rum on their shelves. The tasting was led by the co-founder of the brand, Mr Ian Burrell. It saw the light of they not far ago in a collaboration between Grays Distillery in Mauritius, Mr. Ian Burrell and Mr. Richard Seale owner of the Foursquare Distillery. It consists of unaged rum from Grays made from sugar cane juice and 3yo molasses based rum from Foursquare.”

“Sehr spannender Rum, insbesondere die Nase! Etwas vergleichbares hatte ich noch nicht im Glas. Pur trifft er nicht ganz meinen Geschmack, dafür ist mir die frische Zuckerrohrnote zu präsent. Ich habe aber ein sehr gutes Gefühl dabei den die Tage mal in einem Cocktail zu verwenden. Ich denke da könnte der sich sehr gut machen!”
