Tres long et rond en bouche. Meilleur que le 1703. Assez fruité mais reste très equilibré.
Son caractère riche de chêne est équilibré à la perfection avec des notes de banane mûre et de pain grillé, suivis par la vanille, de la pâtisserie et épices chaudes.

Neat, or on ice, always enjoyable. Respect it, but mostly appreciate this rum for the complexity it provides.

This Rum was a big surprise for us. It won the rum tasting that night from default, had the least in the bottle when the night was over. That's one way we judge the winner - whats left at the end of the night.
Very well balanced rum . Sweet, but not to sweet. Smooth, but with just a little bite.
Excellent rum.
Very good value for us, will keep a bottle in the cabinet.

Ce rhum est d une grande finesse il est moins puissant qu un original dark plantation ou qu un plantation st lucie 2004 (qui est plus sur des notes bitumees).bien equilibre il est un peu moins complexe qu un mezan xo qui est du meme profil.c est un tres bon rhum a essayer.mais le mezan est un peu meilleur et moins cher.note 8.0.

This rum go down very smoothly despite the slightly higher ABV of 43%. It has very nice aftertaste of fruit and wood. If I was going to knock anything at al is I really couldn't detect much of the fruit flavors in the nose but I'm just getting over a cold so that could be the reason for it. While I want rate this quite as high as some of the other rums for Barbados like Four Square it's still a great bargain for the price and will definitely go in my rotation for nightly drams.

Spicy start, hints of vanilla - but well balanced and a long aftertaste

This is a nice rum with a bit strong punch. Works really well with a couple of drops of water. Quite dry.

A very well balanced Rum that is sweet enough for being a great and easy sipper, but has various notes of quite spicy aromas like oak, wood and almost cinnamon. Not too sweet though to show its various aromas.
Definitely one to try out!
