Tasty, but not quite great
Fairy. In mouth it starts very sweet to then change into a bitter aftertaste. On the palate the fruits get stronger and there is a herbal/light spicey taste joining in.
At first no nose but after a while there is some vanilla, roasted nuts and various fruits. A tad smokey too. Pleasant and not overwhelming. On the palate the fruits get stronger and there is a herbal/light spicey taste joining in. Soft oak completes this well balanced rum but it is simply too sweet; I really like it but why the sugar? Some reviewers call this dry, I don't know what they usually drink, but this is sweet, not semi-dry and not sticky lips, just sweet and this rum deserves better imo.
Could have gotten a permanent place in my cabinet but like this, no thanks.
Rum from South America is very much hit-and-miss for me. I had little hope for this one before tasting it. Sadly it was as expected:
Nose: Banana, caramel, vanilla, oak and dried ginger
Taste: Banana, vanilla, caramel, orange peel and a slight oaky feel in a very short and very sweet aftertaste
Overall: This is a very sweet rum, that is a bit to heavy on the banana. If you like banana split and want some rum to go with it, then this is the rum for you. For me it is to sweet and nothing more than an okay sipper if nothing else is available.
Let it breathe for a while to release the aroma!
Nose: nice oak and caramel with some smoke. Pleasant.
Palate: Rather dry, woody, a bit spicy. And nicely warm. Pretty smooth.

In nose I was able to distinguish some caramel and banana. In mouth it starts very sweet to then change into a bitter aftertaste. Interesting but not my type.
Nose of Wood, alcohol and toffee. Taste is dry but also toffee and vanilla. Not Very complex or deep. Actually a bit boring. But not a bad rum.
