First off, I am giving this a 9 score because it cost me £25, and in my opinion the quality, depth of taste and the presentation is way beyond this price range. A good honest tasting rum, superb for sipping with an adequate sweetness, but also slightly dry and a full bodied depth of lovely flavours that you generally only get from Rums double this price and "Age". I bought it as a gamble and will definitely buy it again, and again LOL................... I love this stuff !

Good vegetal notes on the nose, with some ethanol still. Crisp on the palate with some spicy clove notes and sweet citrus

Staromilsky britský rumík v obyčejnské, poctivé láhvi s obyčejnskou etiketou na dobrém rýhovaném papíru a se špuntem zalitým v čemsi připomínajícím vosk. Zkrátka přesně to, co by našinec očekával od údajně nejstarší palírny na Mauritiu. Nedobarvovaný karamelem (!!!), za studena nefiltrovaný a bez jakýchkoli aditiv. Suchý, jemné vůně i chuti. Žádný "jednopanákový" rum - čím déle ho pijete, tím je lahodnější. Skvělý rum pro milovníky whisky!

Un personne ayant pas mal de diplômes que ce soit en oenologie ou dans le domaine du thé, m'a orienté sur ce Penny Blue, parce que débutant, et trouvant la plupart des rhums trop agressifs.
Et bien moi qui ne jurais que par les rhums arrangés sucrés, je découvre ici un rhum assez complexe, qui rappel la vanille, le bois et le soleil; il chauffe à peine la gorge !
Très bien travaillé.

Facile à boire sec, une petite longueur malgré tout, un 9 pour le respect du produit, et de la tradition (sans ajouts).

Ok, this is a very good rum and price is on a good side too! You know it is from Mauritius, as these rums have special taste, just by smelling without even trying.
But , why not try it!! It is a bit of a stronger taste, on natural side sure, no sugar added. First sip and you get that punch that is very well balanced and lasts for a long time. After, when you breakthrough you can sip it just so easily. It is a good rum and is well preserved in different casks, that gives it different layers of flavour. Good!
Only thing that is really not 100% for me is a taste of melon, which is the only fruit I don't really enjoy. But maybe in this rum it will be not so sweet and sticky all over the face :) Anyway I found the taste on luxury side too, after a few tryings...
Overall very good rum for like half of price of others, definitely sipper to have!

Penny Blue VSOP from Mauritius is super mellow rum. Very light color, hardly anything particular to the nose, maybe a tad sweetness but very mild. Taste test reveals mild vanilla and absolutely no burn at all. Very well done indeed! Looking forward finding the Penny Blue XO to try it out.
