It has a hint of Vanilla and a smooth taste, this is one of the best rums I have ever had and I am referring to the 12 year old batch.

My new favorite. Bought it blind only because I read some articles about it. Not disappointed at all. A fantastic smell of vanilla and chocolate. Very smooth and mild, sweet enough but not too sweet. Don't know what could be better.
I found both the 8-years old & the 12-years old at the international airport of San Salvador & following my instict I preferred to bring the latter back home (the older one, by the way, is considered -& I was also told by the seller there- to be drier & more whiskey-like than its sweeter, more vanilla-like, younger brother). Well, I can say that I am more than proud of my choice, since this rum is not a very dry one, but, on the contrary, one of the best & more complicated ones I have ever tasted! The inicial warm impression of wood & spices is followed by a nuance of vanilla & a subtle sweetness, that give this beautiful rum a classy & well-balanced feel.Too bad that it is a very rare brand to come across.Vive El Salvador!
Un rhum avec une longue finale et une belle complexité. Il est très doux et goûte le caramel le chêne l orange et les épices. Si on le compare au 8 ans, il est comparable au goût mais plus complexe.
This rum has great balance between it's flavors, heat, and sweetness which is not overly strong. Sipping it on the rocks tones the heat down while the flavors get stretched out the longer you let it chill. What I tasted I'd say are creme banana and light chocolate on the back of oaky barrel aging which is not overpowering.
from El Salvador
Nose: very nice, spicy and fruity
Palate: very untypical but still pleasant, reminds a little bit on maple syrup, but is not too sweet. Unfortunately, it was only a sample, would like to taste some more...
