Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I got the opportunity to attend a rum tasting with Daniele Biondi from Velier were we tasted 9 different rums. This was the seventh rum of the night, that we tasted side-by-side with its brother, that it identical to this one in every way apart from the aging on that one is continental. It was impressive to see the difference between these two "identical" rums. The two rums were very different both in taste and color (this one had a nice golden dark colour).
Nose: Apricot, camphor, rice pudding, ripe bananas, wax and a heavy floral overtone
Taste: Cocoa, mushroom, tobacco, wood and orange
Overall: This is a completely different story then it´s brother. There is a lot going on in this one and maybe to much for my taste. The floral notes are a bit to much, but the power from the 69+abv and the overall aroma is fantastic. Try this side-by-side with the continental aged one. You won´t regret it.
