Un rhum comme je les aime. Pas trop sur l'alcool. Belle robe

Drinking it right now. This is a real rum. What a good rum should taste like. It's the the best I ever had but it would be great to drink in a leather arm chair by a fire listen to Exotica by Martin Denny

Long leg, strong kick, a little bit heavy but with nice aromas of honey cinnamon and smoked oak barrel. Pleasant

I recieved a bottle of this from students at the end of a term. Fantastic presentation from the straw filled box to the wax seal on the bottle. Once poured, the sweet smell of molasses & the contrasting scent of tobacco touch your senses. Once it hits your tongue the molasses continues and picks up cinnamon and nutmeg along the way. The finish is long and warm, smokey and fruity. What a great find.

I wanted to love this rum. I didn’t. All the notes of wood and amazing flavor typically found in an older rum were missing. Reminded me of just molasses.

40%. Don't let the packaging fool you... there's no age statement (NAS), so could be 2yo (or unaged) with a drop of 16. Also no additives disclosures. Notes: whoa, big chocolate chip cookie rum. Loads of brown sugar. Very rich and sweet. Very sweet. Slightly bitter, molasses-y finish, with a good bite.

A very strange experience, for this price point. I tried it at the house of a friend who is also into rum, and had been given a bottle by another friend. We all tried it, and praised certain qualities, but when the gifter left the room, my friend and I exchanged knowing looks. We were both pretty disappointed. There may only be 15g/L of added sugar, but the whole package is just sweet and messy. I'm really not impressed, and I don't want more. I don't drink rum for dessert. This is kind of an insult. And it just saddens me that so many people are willing to shell out so much cash for a mediocre rum when so many better ones are available for far less!

6-, 5+

Made from molasses from what I understand. Accordingly, tastes a little more complex and deeper than most of the rums I've had so far. Still pretty smooth and very good. Better than a lot of the ones I've had so far.

At the moment my favourite sipping rum. Smooth and flavourful. I prefer it it neat, no ice.
