After liking the Chairman's Reserve and the Forgotten Casks I came across this rum. Blended by E8 but destilled by St. Lucia distillers also and very affordable here in the Netherlands (I paid €21); I could not resist!
Medium bodied rum with a destinctive aroma, it is not strong but full of pot still esters (no, not a Jamaican nuke) that will fill the room in 10 minutes time. On the nose a bit of smokey oak, orange, vanilla, fudge. On the palate there is again a firm pot still influence but the strange thing is that the blend is build around it; with a lot of others rums that pot still part comes rushing in, almost independant from the rest of the flavours but not here. Dry, yet with a natural sweetness, rather complex and with notes of dried fruits, chocolate, prune and orange. It is truly a mouthfull of flavours in maybe the best balanced rum I tasted thusfar.

This rum will do just as good in a smokey bar (if you can still find one anywhere..) as after a fancy diner aside an espresso. For me everything comes together in this Vendôme but the sad thing is, according to their website, it has become a limited edition so in other words, they stopped making this or will do so soon......

If I would take price into consideration I would have to give it an 11 but without that it is a solid 9 for me. My first 9....

A very fruity, very honeyed gem from St Lucia. Elements 8 gold rum is a light-to-medium-bodied spirit which works well as both a mixer and a sipper with a few ice cubes and a splash of lime.
Nose: Oaky and sweet with notes of buttery vanilla and honey. A hint of spice.
Palate: Sweet and soft with notes of supple sultanas, dates, stewed fruits, manuka honey and apricot.
Finish: Good length with soft fruit skins, spices and pepper.
