Nez boisé et complexe, je manque de mots. Bouche; bonne puissance, attaque boisé qui s'étire sur la cassonade et suit la noix de coco longuement avec touch d'épices. Alcool en fin de bouche.

Oodles of flavour! This is one of my favourite rums that doesn't break the bank. Way more flavour than regular Mount Gay Eclipse.

One of my favourite runs, not overly sweet with a nice smooth taste

Blend of pot still and column still from rum aged between 8 years to 15 years.

Might sound crazy but banana peanut butter toast with strawberry jam it is! Moist wet wood and slight earthy towards the end.

Fruity on palate: ripe plums and banana compote.
Light touch of smokiness and burned wood.
Bitterness which balance up with the sweet fruity aroma.

Dry charred wood with tannic. Ripe guava and sour grapes. Opposite of what gotten on the nose.

It lingers well after sipping and makes you wanna continue with hesitating.

Love the nose of this rum especially the longer it sits in the glass. It gains more complexity. Molasses, cinnamon, oak and hints of citrusy fruit. Not to be mixed. Sip away my friends.

Being a rather proud "straight" person the name is a bit of an obstacle to overcome. The rum as a whole is pretty tasty, can be enjoyed either on the rocks or neat. Pretty decent libation overall. There is a decent level of wood, a touch of whiskey and not an ounce of sweetness. From start to finish this rum is very good and something to have on your shelf.

Full of flover. "1703 Old Cask" is better than this. However, this rum is good value for money.

coming into rum drinking once i moved to the tropics... as a whisky or cognac drinker, this rum is one of the best if not the best ive had that can be drank neat or on the rocks. like others have said, i think scotch drinkers would appreciate this rum.

Vyborna koupe, doporucuji, spis whiskovy, malo sladky, nedoslazovany. Vune nasladla, jemna, je citit vanilka a dubove drevo. Chut jemna, kulata a hladka, na jazyku je citit drevo a staroba. Mohu doporucit jako zajimavou alternativu k podobme drahym rumum zacapa a legendario, kde se lisi hlavne svoji sladkosti
