Firstly it is not expensive.

The color is a little blend and a lot of rum reviewers will say as is the taste, but not for me.

The smell is cognacy complex and very gentle. I drank it neat and it was super complex, smooth jet gentle. It is at the same time woody, fruity and dry but in a very gentle pleasant way. Try not to sip at least 5 glasses in a row, I could not stop. I think I could drink the whole bottle in one sitting. I would also recommend to keep it in a fridge so when you drink it’s already cold.

Now, rocks and mixing is a big no no on this one. It loses all its gentle complexity.

Tried the 8 year and wasn’t impressed but the 15 year us spectacular! Smooth and flavorful. Mild hints of vanilla. Highly recommend.

Musím říci, že po objednání jsem si přečetl nějaké české recenze. Když mi došel domů, musel jsem udělat ochutnávku, ze které jsem měl vcelku strach, protože české recenze nebyly moc příznivé. Vůně mírně kávová a chuť vynikající, mírně kávová a jemná. Podle českých recenzí jsem čekal šmirgl v krku, který se ovšem nekonal. Pro mne je to vynikající rum.

Casi excelente, tiene un regusto como a chocoloate negro y mucho cuerpo. Muy recomendable.

It’s not superb sweet. It’s not full of junk. It’s just a smooth rum that you can drink on the rocks or pair with cola, gingerale, soda water etc.

It’s good with almost anything. I appreciate this rum because you can enjoy it several different ways.

its a good product, if you want to drink in the rocks or in a Cuba Libre.
