A great rum, almost a must have, definitely a must try. The price tag is a bit much though. Not sure of the marketing dept thinking on that one. It would probably be a 9 if it didn't leave your wallet so light.
On the nose: fruits, oak, spices, grilled pineapple, a lot of brown sugar, sugar cane, no alcohol sharpness, dark sweetness, some banana with cinnamon, nutmeg and a little clove.
On the palate: tropical fruits with lots of spices, oak, creamy, tingling, some dark chocolate with tannins, some old wood and leather.
Finish: dry, oak, spices, a little sugar cane and brown sugar, long, a little pepper.

Am Gaumen: tropische Früchte mit vielen Gewürzen, Eiche, cremig, prickelnd, etwas dunkle Schokolade mit Tanninen, etwas altes Holz und Leder. Im Abgang: trocken, Eiche, Gewürze, etwas Zuckerrohr und brauner Zucker, lang, etwas Pfeffer.
I finally had the chance to try this rum on the rocks in a local tiki bar here on the Gold Coast. After reading all the amazing reviews about it I felt I little bit disappointed. It is a good rum, smooth and easy drinking but it’s not that great. I will buy a bottle when I find it and maybe change my score, but atm it’s just a nice easy drinking rum with caramel notes and almost no burn. Prob should have had it neat.
While not a truly amazing rum, this is definitely worth sipping on and for the price point an easy addition to the shelf of any rum enthusiast.
I’m quite disappointed with this. I like that it’s dry, but all I’m getting is bitterness and burn. Very straightforward rum, not complex at all. Smells great but just doesn’t deliver flavour, maybe it’s one for on ice?
