10 years in American oak casks before being transferred over to once-used French oak casks that previously held Cognac for the final 6 years.

N- Shy at first, initially get the cured ham with raisin and various dried nuts, then more power and weights shows up gradually, and the aged rum notes blossomed to fullness at the tail, expecting more French Oak influence but the cognac were not as prominent at this stage. (87/21)

P- French oak comes into play with abundance of fig, raisin and oak nuance, well integrated with touch of phenol, charred wood and sweet cedar note. Good 2nd cask influence. Would be great if the sugary at the tail can be contain. (87/21)

F- Medium-long, more obvious brandy coats with echoing waxy dried fruits, full and subtly spicy. (88/22)

Body/Balance- 87/21

Weighted Rate:- 85pt

This is not your mommas rum. If you like good deep well balanced rum then this gem is for you. Very nice, perfect sweetness. Great flavors from start to finish.

Nice sipping rum, you can really taste the oak flavour. Not as good as 1824 or 1787. But still highly recommended

I am so sorry! I tried the 1787 first and after this wonderful rum i tasted the batch 2. It is like tadting honey and after that tasting sugar water. It is surely a nice rum, but in comparison to 1787 it is no 2.!

Le nez est plus sucré que le batch 1 (cerise, bonbon arlequin).
L’attaque est douce mais manque de complexité. En fait j’ai été déçu car j’attendais énormément de ce rhum, mais une fois en bouche il n’y a pas de magie qui opère, pas d’explosion de saveurs, il y a un arrière gout de cognac qui prend tout de suite le dessus et qui coupe toutes les saveurs du rhum. Ca crée une énorme frustration, la dégustation a les ailes coupées en plein vol. Ca reste un bon rhum mais je préfère largement la 1er version qui a plus de caractère. Comme tout angostura le final est très intéressant par sa longueur.

This stuff has eight spoons of added sugar per liter - a preposterous amount - which explains why it tastes so damned sweet and uninteresting. I love authentic rums from Trinidad (e.g.,Caroni) but this juice has that insipid, flat mouthfeel and lack of complexity common to heavily sweetened rums. What a waste.
