i admit it. i'm a barrel and age snob. i was expecting this to be harsh ethanol mixed with a splash of windex. it turns out to be a 6 year aged gold rum, charcoal filtered to be crystal clear (Which i again ask: "why?"). nose is missing the barrel and betrays this as a younger rum, maybe maybe a hint or raisin? the taste is clean, with some age, a LOT of black pepper, and some heavy syrupy fruit (like maybe mango but not strong... more like a viscosity thing). all in all not bad, would make a pretty fine daiqiuiri i think.

Very sweet and winning nose, vanilla, white sugar, slightly sour and hints of almond, wooden bitterness and coffee beans. However, no complexity with a short finish.

Ok, maybe with some hints if pineapple and other tropical smells. Taste is just ok, maybe goes well for cocktails.

It was not my type of rum. But maybe for other it can be.....

I think they were just playing around with this one or ran too large of a batch and went straight to bottling.

Aged for up to 6 years in American white oak and ex bourbon casks. Gravity fed charcoal filtration to remove the colour. Aromas of fresh coconut a little earthy. Taste very smooth and creamy with a hint of coconut water. Bottled at 47% abs am impressed.

N- Shy and almost odorless at the beginning. Touch of nuttiness, fresh almond, walnut and kennels. Layer of rebel ethanol heat and whiff of nail polish remover with prickly wood restrain the rather fine aroma of cedar wood and scents of light cigar to come thru. (17/25)

P- Sweet cane, moist toffee cake with tart berries. Minimum oak influence making it taste still quite raw, but well mellow and harmless after long aging and the multiple filtration. May be too raw and insignificant on flavours but do like the firm body that comes with it. (18/25)

F- Short and clean, better deliver on dried white fruits sweetness, grassy fragrant with spirit heats linger. (16/25)

Balanced:- Pale but still quite rich and tasty with good body, only to be pull off by the scents of ethanol. (17/25)

Weighted Rate:- 68pt

Not being a white rum drinker, I was surprised at the richness of taste, approaching ambassador's better dark rums. Not for sipping, but quite nice in for instance a mojito.

Des notes d'orange malgré son gout assez fort en bouche. Un arrrire gout tres agréable
