Easily consumable in a bind
I get shy and bright nose. Nothing special, it's not harsh but simple.
The taste starts watery but warm with vanilla from the bourbon white oak. It turns spicy, I get also some bitter notes and a light fruity taste. At the end is some bourbon oak and some chocolate notes.
Very simple and young rum. I would rate it with 46 points.
Nose: vanilla, white oak, some citrus a fruit like peach or apple (it's very shy)
Taste: vanilla, some peach, some spice, some bitter notes, bourbon wood, some chocolate
Finish: spice, vanilla
Value (16.9€): 1.5/5
Bought this to mix. Trying on the rocks to rate. Very sweet and boozy. No real nice aging characteristics at all, straight up liquor. Must mix this, not good by itself.

"You get sweetness but a fair hit of more metallic bitter notes. It has a pretty muted, yet smooth mouthfeel and a very short finish."
