Ikke den bedste i skabet. Men okay. Er lidt stærk i smagen.

An old batch of this series. Double-distilled and matured in American oak before a second maturation period in sherry casks.

N- Caramel and stewed fruits, herbal tea with layer of earthiness to keep it authentic. Soft breezy oak, and floral, again touch of feint from this multiple distilled spirits. White raisin, sour plum and dried fruit intertwined. (84/18)

P- Thin body, sweet kiwi, young banana and oak smokes, Easy on palate with touch of dusty oak, which is not a bad thing in this case. (83/18)

F- Medium, plums, clean oak with semi dry finish, touch of bitter sweet herbs. (85/19)

B/B- 84/18, having same issue to term with the low strength that restricted any profound flavours of the rum to come thru.

Smells great, but dull after taste. Makes me wanna try something else.

This was best at Top of the Market in San Diego. A little rough - a lime smoothed it out some.

Smooth Rum, not to strong.. sweet good for a neat drink without ice

Interesting nose with a slight burn. The sip is not diverse and the burn continues beyond the initial taste yet I will stock it, not as a sipper but as a mixer. Coke, ginger ale, citrus all created a wonderful flavor well beyond the normal mixer.

Hint of spices, coffee and dried fruit. Matured in White oak casks and sherry oak casks

apparently this was aged in Sherry casks for duration of time. Accordingly, it has a slight orange liqueur flavor to it. Overall, a pretty solid rum. However, the finish is not nearly as smooth as some of the premium rums I have tried. Has a little alcohol bite to it and is a little too hot.

This was on the back shelf of our resort stay in Punta Cana. Deep, amber colour with mild aromas of honey, herb and alcohol. Decent body with little alcohol burn. Would have enjoyed the chance to savour from glass and time, but only had access to a plastic shot glass. I have a sealed bottle in the collection, so now I know it's at least worth the shelf space.
