Sa robe est or pâle.

Au nez, l’impression est sèche. L’arôme dominant est nettement le caramel. Viennent ensuite des notes torréfiées de chocolat. Pour finir une touche vanillée apparaît. L’ensemble est relativement frais.

En bouche, l’attaque est souple mais sèche, ici pas de sucre. On retrouve les mêmes marqueurs qu’au nez. Le chocolat et le caramel font cependant jeu égal. Bien que la bouche soit plutôt légère, les arômes ne sont pas si timides que ça.

La finale est assez longue et toujours sèche. Les mêmes notes demeurent et un boisé discret pointe le bout de son nez.

N- At underwhelming 37.5%, seriously not much to expect. Whispers of ripe sweet tropical fruit, metallic, mineral and huge scents of cardboard, brown sugar, coconut candy, get better as it get on but cloudy and superficial, though nothing actually unpleasant, it just ....diluted. (80/17)

P- Welcoming sweet herbs notes, sugary with layer of toasted oak with tinge of thin spice and white raisins. (82/17)

F- Short, watery thin for casual sip on rock or a perfecto rum martini. Dusty, semi dry. (80/17)

Body/Balance- 80/17

Weighted Rate- 68

This one is a perfect every day rom. Works fine for sipping and for cocktails.

Bit harsh, better to have it on ice or mix it. Can be an upgrade from havana3 or bacardi carta

It’s an honest aged molasses rhum, quite equilibrated: not very harsh in the aftertaste and with a good level of sweetness. With cola, it gives you the perfect Cubata.

Cheap rum but little sweet, smooth, little to strong, sharp aftertaste.

Its ok bit not that smooth to sip. The Imperial is a massive step up from this.

From the moment you open the bottle is noticiable its strong aroma that caracterizes the caribbean spirits. Not on the rocks, but good for mixers.

Nice in a coke but nothing stands out. I like to mix it with a coke and even then this does not stand out

Very smooth and very nice. I would 100% recommend it to someone who is new to rum to taste a better rum and I think it's important to keep this one in mind when talking about good rums. But I do think that is where it should stay. I do not think it is one of the best rums around but it is VERY far away from the worst.

To someone who is new to rum, do try this!
