“A rum with marked scents of olives and iodine. I feel like I'm breathing in the sea crashing on the rocks. It is really strong and leaves no room for too many nuances. Not for everyone. A summer rum! Definitely very suitable for cocktails of a certain level.I think, however, that whites, like wines, should be rated in a separate classification because they are too different from barricaded rums. This rating is high, but clearly cannot be compared to an aged rum because it is a whole different thing.”

“I wouldn't taste it at breakfast and I think a bottle would be too much, but I'm glad I repeated the tasting at RhumFest. The brine and olive notes, which take over from the esters and fruit, are quite surprising :)”
