This rum looks like dark amber in the glass. It's a pretty color with clingy legs.
The nose is very full and compact. There's lots of liquorice root and prunes. Then lightly charred wood, cocoa, coffee, vanilla and dark fruit compote. It's all a bit musty. After a while, soft caramel starts emerging as well. This has to be one of the most hypnotizing aromas I've come across. It's absolutely fantastic.

I was a bit nervous that the taste would struggle to keep up with the nose, but a spontaneous "oh my god" left my lips after the first sip. This is unbelievably good.
It's packed with flavor and big bodied, but it's not very dry and the alcohol is so well integrated that I practically didn’t notice it, besides a nice heat in my chest.
The taste carries a lot of the same notes from the aroma, most pronounced on the prunes, dark fruit compote, caramel, vanilla and coffee. Incredibly delicious.
The finish gives of subtle charred wood, reminding me of Velier Diamond 1999, mixed with prunes.

This is one of the best rum I have ever tasted and probably ever will, as another reviewer have stated. I have been lucky to be able to buy a decent sample and will treasure every sip of this.

Beautiful dark mahogany color. The nose is on candied fruits, prunes, date. Nuts too. Then comes notes of chocolate, coffee, freshly roasted coffee beans. On the palate, we stay on candied fruits. The alcohol is superbly well integrated and almost invisible despite the displayed power of 60.3%. A super long finish on spices, pepper, chilli and many others. The tobacco then arrives with a magnificent wooded. It's a great rum that does not finish. To leave open hours to discover all the aromas.

Il rum perfetto. Colore, profumo, aroma, persistenza, gusto e potenza da antologia.
Un amante del rum non può non provarlo almeno una volta nella vita.

Je ne comprends pas les notes attribuées à ce rhum. Les arômes caramel couvrent tout le reste et ne laissent pas les autres s'exprimer sauf les arômes grillés.
