Woody, ashy, pop corn with light coating of caramel with fresh stone fruits aroma.
Taste slightly similar to what I got on nose. Smokey, ashy and sweet pineapple with a tiny bite (sour bite which usually found in unripe pineapple).
Soft tannin from aging which stick on to gum which I enjoy pretty much. Dry and long finishing with aroma of banana lingering.

N- Bright and uplifted citrus peels, sour smokes with lots of orange with zings of pineapple and obvious vanilla coating. Aromatic wood with generous quality sweet fruits. Clean, pleasant and delicious, nice as it is, no nonsense with those hidden dark spice, caramel and so on. Nice as it is. (22/25)

P- The smokes carry on from the aroma, with first sip of ashy earths to balanced things out, followed by charming icing sugar coated strawberry, fat creamy vanilla come thru, as well whiff of unwelcome usual caramel lurking in the back. (21/25)

F- Medium, crisp and dry. Creme anglaise, minted aromatic compote of banana, sweet mango and pineapple breakfast fruit salad drizzle with honey? Perhaps~ (21/25)

Balanced:- Surely for those with sweet tooth, with timely dryness emerge for a clean finish. (21/25)

Weighted Rate:- 85pt

Mes premières dégustations m'avaient déçu. Je le trouvais "quelconque", presque un mauvais cognac.
En persévérant il a trouvé sa place sec à l'apéritif. Doux mais pas trop, un nez sur le caramel, une bouche ronde mais sèche également. Il remplace avantageusement un bon whisky blend et plait aux femmes

Duft af frugt og især af syltetøj. Faktisk ret meget, hvilket giver en forventning af noget sødt, men smagen lever ikke op til duften. Smag af fad, lidt tobak og lidt lakrids. Er lidt sprittet, som giver en tørhed i munden, der gør at man bliver tørstig. Har smagt rom, der var meget dårligere, men bestemt også bedre. (3. December 2018)

Aroma is nice and fruity. Taste is sweet with peach and exotic fruit tones. but no added sugar. Aftertaste is not long but pleasant.

Další kúsok z rumového kalendára. Pekná medeno zlatá farba, v pohári sa tento 8 ročný rum z Maurícia vyznačuje príjemnou tradičnou rumovou arómou prevažne po sladkej vanilke a orieškoch. Podľa môjho názoru má výrazný zrecí potenciál. Chuť zaostáva za aromatickým vnemom. Ako 8 ročný rum - taký priemer, ale inak nič extra. Starší New Grove bude isto vyspelejší hlavne v chuti.

Lukten er litt ubestemmelig men med et hint av sitrus. I smaken kan den umiddelbart kjennes noe stram, men den forsvinner overraskende fort. Litt ettersmak av krydder på tunga.

J ai goûté ce rhum dans un calendrier de Noël. Je débute dans la dégustation de rhum.

Smell fruity and smokey. Taste pleasant fruity full with berries. Fresh but a bit Smokey. It doesn’t bite too much and I like the light aftertaste. From “24 rums collection” with S.

Although I am from the cold north of Denmark, then my family still have quite a history with Mauritius, so it is always special for me, when a bottle from this island nation hits the table.

Nose: Cinnamon, nutmeg and a small whiff of oak
Taste: A very light tasting rum with flavors of dry fruits and subtle funky quality
Overall: There is a lot going on with this rum and it packs a lot of flavour. Complex, but still friendly to more inexperience rum lovers.
