Tasty, but not quite great
Sugar 0-5 GPL.
Good marketing concept that gets your attention and curiosity. There was nothing special in terms of taste that would cause you to hoard or over buy on this rum. Oak, pepper, dry fruit and some caramel all present and accounted for in this rum. It's a bit sharp on entry, but that fades to a nice long burn. This rum was aged in Jim Beam and Jack Daniels casks that give it a burnt taste. I have other rums from St Lucia (1931 series) that are smoother and more complex in flavour for sipping neat. This rum makes for a great mixing rum and it's okay for a sipping rum if you like your rum on the dry side.
We had tried the regular and it was nothing special but this is a drastic improvement. I did not want to by the regular one more than once, I would spend the money to by this again.
At my first tasting, it seemed a little over-oaked. Second time, it felt more balanced, and tasty. Third time, oaky and buttery. A solid mature St. Lucian rum, but the oak is the most prevalent feature for me.
Très belle couleur
Nez boisé vanillé
Bouche très doux à t'attaque puis révèle tous ces arômes de bois de tabac blond
Final long miel vanillé et toujours cette sensation boisé épicé
Suprenant par ça douceur mais toute la richesse de sainte Lucie est présente
Bon rhum à découvrir
With its interresting historical past, this rum is quite easy to drink even if it is a little bit dry. Well balanced, it is spicy ( peper ) with alittle touch of floral aromas. Unfortunately, the short aftertaste will lead you to forget this rum quite quickly when sipped.
Rhum assez différent des rhums agricoles de la Martinique, île voisine. Rhum assez léger, très doux en bouche.
Bon rapport-qualité prix acheté sur place.
"The extra ageing has added an extra depth of flavour (if not smoothness) to the rum."
