Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I made the huge mistake of listening to the clerk at my local liquour store who adviced me to buy this... my god what do they make this with? is like pure rubbing alcohol. I had one zip and left the bottle almost full on the bottom shelf of my minibar as decoration. Never again.
This is my favorite Rum! Dry agricole rum made from sugarcane juice not molasses in Haiti. Bright flavor, not too fancy just good rum. True pirate Rum with it's simple old school bottle and label. Smooth with a little bite, I like to drink it straight out of the bottle, arrrrrrr. Clean liquor never a headache from this stuff.
N- Soft and quiet, with light ashy smoke breeze thru from a distance, bonfire, phenol charred notes and plenty of sea salts (doesn't it sounds familiar?) Cognac (a vsop) mixed with water alike, which is quite nice. Despite the quiet nature, appeared rounded, serious with fine oak fragrant, probably from a refill brandy cask. (19/25)
P- Layer by spiced salts, some dried berries with rather firm body and well structure, despite light on strength, good oak that impart just the right touch of woodiness that sooth the palate. (19/25)
F- Short-medium, smooth. Drift of dried leaf with charred wood lingers, returns of phenol that make it rather complex. Good light sipping rhum. (20/25)
Balanced:- Brandy alike, which is not a bad thing. (19/25)
Weighted Rate:- 77pt

not the best, not the worst. in between. if you want to have a nice rhum for a minimum of bucks, than try. taste it neat on its own. the whole taste goes into the direction of the five star. but in the end it lacks complexity and smoothness.
This rum did not make me go to it often. It sat for one of the longest periods of time on my open bottle shelve. It has a certain roughness in its tone. Not due to the alcohol just its general flavor profile. To me it had a certain rancidness to it, maybe the sugar cane used in my bottle was not the freshest.
Le fait qu'il soit à partir de jus de canne et non de résidus de canne m'a fait croire que j'aurais droit à un très bon rhum. Il est très bien avec du cola et un peu de jus de lime. Sec, la sensation de brûlure est trop présente pour bien apprécier les arômes.
A nice, dry rum with a nice aroma indicating some sweetness. The flavor is also nice. Similar to the 5-star but not as smooth. It has somewhat of a complexity about it. A little more of a burn than the 5-star but nothing harsh. There is a butteriness to it along with a mild sweetness. There seems to be similarities between the 3-star and 5-star rums with the differences being somewhat minute. The longer aging definitely makes the 5-star smoother and the flavors stand out more. This one is as expected of a younger rum. Definitely makes a good mixer. And is wonderful in Coke Zero. I still wish they used a cork instead of a metal screw cap.
To me, it's an OK rum, not the best by far. It has the presence and the sting you want from rum, but not the complexity to be called a great rum. Ok at best
VERY dry and with a strong burn.
Very little taste of either sugar or sugar cane and a strong earthy after taste.
Good enough (barely) to use in a fruit punch
