Ár/érték arányban az egyik legjobb ital.
Harmónikus,hosszú lecsengésű.
Nem a legszofisztikáltabb rum a piacon,de nagyon kellemes az íze.

Initial thoughts include spicy, with notes of cinnamon and vanilla. This was a Christmas sale purchase that has delighted me over and over.

I managed to find this rum for$24.99 at Christmas, and took a shot on it due to its low price. I was very surprised with the wonderful flavors and complex eww city of this drink, and enjoy it both neat and with mix.

While not as complex as some others (see my review on Lemon Hart 1804), it has a delightful flavor and very pleasant nose. Notes of pepper and cinnamon, as well as vanilla and a not overpowering sweetness make this one another staple in my cabinet.

Certainly appreciable neat, it has a wonderful complexity and is also simple at the same time. The flavors present are not overly deep or complex, but rather they are solid and pleasant in their balance. Truly one of the first really high quality rums that I stumbled upon with a terrific experience to price ratio.

If you are new to rums and are looking to elevate your experience, this is a wonderful way to grow your experience and enjoy some truly great flavor at the same time.

A very interesting complicated rum, with heavy oak taste and strong aftertaste. Pricey otherwise definitely a 8/10

My wife and I experimented with this rum a bit during the lockdown. At first we liked it. It is clearly on the very sweet side, but so are a few others we have enjoyed at times, Diplomatico Reserva and Papa's Pilar come to mind. The price point is reasonable. The flavor palette is alright, reasonably complex with some notes of burnt sugar, dark fruit and citrus. the finish and overall effect is just too sweet. My wife could tolerate the sweetness, but I eventually found it rather cloying. The other big problem I have with sweeter rums is that it seems to take a bit more of them to get you where you want to go. Also, if you indulge a bit more the harsh after effects seem worse.
Anyway, if you are a fan of very sweet rums and don't get any negative effects from the sugar this might be a good choice, but for us, not so much.

Very respectable Rum but too sweet to be a favorite. I would serve it to my friends, but not my best friends.

This is a great sipper and if you're a mixer its great with a splash of coke. The hint of caramel is what I always fall sucker too. Its not to expensive which makes this a perfect everyday rum.

Je dois à ce rhum mon introduction dans le monde des spiritueux, il y’a une dizaine d’années. Une belle expérience gustative et olfactive ! Si bien que je ne sais plus sur quel ange m’agripper pour me retrouver à travers ces nuages de saveurs et de senteurs ! J’ai un peu de mal à décrire mes impressions...
En fait, ce rhum est doux sans être tendre. Généreusement expressif, il se démarque de par son bouquet fruité, d’où se dégagent des saveurs de vanille et de caramel. On sent également une certaine présence d’alcool, qui, mélangée aux notes fruitées et sucrées, me fait penser à une main de fer dans un gant de velours. Un rhum tout à fait respectable, qui a son caractère bien singulier, qui le différencie sans complexe de ses aînés de 15 et de 21 ans, de la maison Demerara en Guyane.
Comme Corneille l’a si bien fait dire à Rodrigue dans le cid : Je suis jeune, il est vrai; mais aux âmes bien nées, la valeur n'attend point le nombre des années !
Un crédible rhum de 12 ans à siroter straight ou sur le roc !

Pretty good for the money. Sweet and fruity/vanilla notes
