"West Indies 8 years, a blend without any additives – no added sugar, colorings or aromas and 100% 8 years old. Well rounded, delicate yet powerful, maintaining the signature natural elegance of Compagnie des Indes rums. Aged in American oak barrels, this West Indies blend brings together rums from Barbados for a hint of Pot still rums, Dominican Republic, Panama and British Guyana for the Column still"

Nose: Quite sweet, caramel,peach vanilla, honey, star anise and wormwood
Palate: Nicely sweet for unsugared rum, honey, oak spice, nice pepperiness, peach that turns quickly into pleasant sourness like peach pit. Allspice and vanilla with bit star anise.
Finish: delicate and generously oaky with spiciness on the back palate.

Great blend, nicely sweet for unsugared rum, great flavors, bit on the delicate side but well executed.

yellow gold colour, spicy nose and a great well rounded taste. with 40% alc. this rum is quite easy to drink and has a lovely lasting flavour when you sip it. loved this one on a hot summer night dreaming away to the Caribbean.

Facettenreicher, nicht zu komplizierter Einsteigerrum.

It's a natural rum for beginners. For conaisseurs it should be more intensive.
It's a Guyana, Panama, Domrep and Barbados blend. I'd prefer a 12 year version and more aromas from Barbados and Guyana.

The flavors are very bright and light. The combination of the flavors is not very interesting.
The taste is watery with vanilla, some tannins, citrus, pear and some apricot. The dilution is too high.
I would mix more Guyana PM inside and more Barbados rum to add orange flavors.
Because of the balance I would give 70 points.

Smell: vanilla, white oak, herbs, apricot, some citrus, wood
Taste: watery taste, slightly sweetness (not caramel), vanilla, some fruits (citrus, pear), grasy notes, tannins from the wood, some apricot
Finish: long spicy finish, warm burn, vanilla, pear, grasy notes

Sweetness: 1.5/5
Spice: 3.5/5
Fruit: 2/5
Mildness: 3.5/5
Value (35€): 2/5
