This is a blend of 5 year old rums and a good and affordable place to start exploring the rums of Compagnie des Indes. It has a well balanced body and a nice smell. The light color indicates no or very little coloring. Although only aged for 5 years it is absolutely drinkable straight up, but dont expect a rich and powerfull or very sweet rum. A decent and honest young rum as it only contains 15 grams of added sugar per liter. Recommendable

There is reason in being critical towards the dogma that "older is better". "Ooh, I have this 18 year old rum, it surely must be better than this 12 year old rum." Wrong. Aging does things - often good things - but it doesn't neccesarily make a better rum. I was pleasantly suprised by the line up of 5 year old rums by CDI. The 'Latino' is light and bright. It has some character but certainly isn't 'heavy'. It's not overly sweet, with a nice dry finish. And because it hasn't spend a quarter of a century in a barrel, it's lively: you can have another one and another and another without getting saturated with oak. Try doing that with old rum. This is a sophisticated party drink or an unfuzzy summer evening sipper, it might become a permanent addition to my cabinet.

Great rum and bang for your buck. Nicely layered with tones from the bourbon casks and sweet esters. The 40% is not even annoying. Good stuff.

Redelijke rum met veel smaken die helaas niet allemaal te herlijden zijn.

Soepele rum, scherp randje en veel zoete carameltonen.

I think this one is a little bit too young and too simple.
Yes it's a natural rum, but still sweet.
I would start from the CDI West Indies 8 years.

Rum tasting in Tirana Albania continued with Compagnie des Indes Latino Vosne Romanee. Nice and unique bottle and label design. Bright golden color. Sweet oaky flavors mixed with mild caramel and vanilla to your nose and palate when neat sipped. Sweet and short burn at the end.

A very nice young blend of rums from here , there and everywhere.. light straw in colour , bit of an astringent nose , plus fruit , honey and a bit of chocolate ! Sips well for a 5 yr old rum.. buttery notes , short finish. 7.5 rating really.

Combination of 5 years old rums of various countries in the Caribbean and Mid-America. This rum is totally dominated by sweet notes – starting with the nose and continued with the palate which has no burn at all. Palate reveals flavors of sweet sugar and vanilla. Only short finish.
