Very sweet and tasty, love this Rum. For the price (29,90 EUR in Interspar) unbeatable...

absolutely out of our rum planet! Ok, aromas are obvious, but I would say they hit you and bring you down to an easy home made drink or open your mind to the craziest bartending or gastronomy experience!

Very interesting rhum to taste. Maritius, if I remember well, used to be French colony before being taken by UK. And it is notable in this rhum as well. Very nice bottle and presentation, but I still cant get rid off feeling that there is added sugar which isnt confirmed by producer. It is made from sugar can, not from molasses, so it is close to rhum agricole

Smell: Rich. Rich and unusual. Cococnuts, banana, almonds, marzipan, and some fruit that I am not able to recoognize. Sugarcane as well.

Taste: Tastes from half like typical agricole rhums, half like sweet elixir. You can taste the cane itself, but it is very very sweet. Marzipan and banana in taste, also some more fruit. Very good to drink on rocks. Nice combination and very original creation. But I definitely wouldnt recomend this to everyone, because even when this is unusual rhum, I think you can get better rhums in this price category. But you can give it a try in a bar.

When I first tried it, it was a bit of a WTF moment. Really not like most rums and I wasn't sure whether I actually liked it. I certainly didn't dislike it, but now the more I drink it, the more I love it, and this really is up there with my favourites. The notes of cane shine through, and I agree with the tasting note on the back about coco, vanilla and tropical scents. However I would add banana to that. I give it to (discerning friends) and some just sit there sniffing it. Definitely different, and so much the better for it.

Notes de coco, banane, tonalités vanillées et une note finale boisée et épicée.
Je le sers plutôt en apéritif et son nez de banana Haribo fait toujours son petit effet :)

Mmmmm, hard to say how I feel about this rum. The smell isn't so good, I feel like I smell chocolate and cofee, although I think I'm the only one. Then the taste is not that bad, to sip neat, but again, pretty different from other rums I tasted. I think it's good for rum lovers but probably not for everybody.

Enjoyed a glass of Arcane Extraroma from the Island of Mauritius on a rather rainy afternoon. Arcane Extraroma comes in a fancy black toned box with a nice blacked out bottle design and a pretty nice mint colored label. Color of the rum is semi dark. To me this rum reminds me of the very first sweet Rhum Agricole in the world. Unique for sure. Banana and marzipan are the strongest flavors to the nose and palate. Vanilla is secondary flavor and still quite strong.

Chouette rhum bien parfumé ! Les puristes du rhum agricole doivent s'abstenir car on vite penser que l'on a un peu forcé sur les arômes ... Mais bon, cela reste très agréable 😊

Too much vanilla tones on the palate for me, not as great as what it was raved up to be. This is only after my first taste neat but a good rum does not need to grow on you it should be instant love for it. I will use it as a mixer rum and for the money we pay for a bottle in Aus $100 I would drink the Diplomatico Exclusiva Reserva over this any day. It probably didnt help that I had high expectations for this but it didnt live up to more than a 7 for me.

I had an idea of what might discover while tasting the rum but it's a good surprise. It is clear that the banana is very present and coconut flavors but the balance is correct. I even suprised to drink another glass ;-)
To be reserved for special occasion or can be used with dessert assiocation.

Smell is not so great, banana, pastry cream... but the taste is unexpected. Advised!
