Schöne Flasche und sogar Nummeriert. (Nachbewertung vom 28.12.2018)
Tja, auch schon das beste an diesem Ron. (Nein)
In der Nase fruchtig und etwas bissig. (Relativ dezent, Karamell, Kakao, Leder, Früchte, nicht bissig)
Im Gaumen doch etwas zu flach, Trockenfrüchte, Toffee, Leder. (etwa so)
Nicht so süss. (jawohl)
Abgang schwach.
(Gutes Preis/Leistung Verhältnis für Einsteiger.)

Beautiful bottle and even numbered.
Well, even the best thing about this Ron.
a slightly fruty and biting nose.
On the palate, a bit too shallow, dried fruits, toffee, leather.
Not so sweet.
Weak in the finish.

Beautiful presentation, box and bottle. The price its ok, maybe good. Nice color and aroma and it has some magic inside. It is a little dry and has some tasty notes. I really recommend it.

Suave, sedoso, con notas a fruta fresca y miel de caña. Se deja beber muy bien.

Un bon rhum, ni trop sec, ni trop sucré. Mais sans effet "whaouu", sans surprise.
Good rhum, not top sugared, not top dry. But no "whaooo" effect : no surprise. Too classical.

A medium rum, a good start when you are having a tasting of multiple rums

Von diesem Rum hatte ich mir mehr versprochen. Eine schöne Flasche und die Aufmachung im Karton haben mich sehr angesprochen, der Rum leider nicht. Mir ist er zu scharf und nichts Besonderes. Für Cuba Libre verwende ich ihn nun.

Bought it way to expensive at a street sales men in Punta Cana. But money worth!

Vzhledem k ceně překvapivě chutný, i když tento typ rumů není můj oblíbený.

Nice bottle design, looks excuisite, Dry rum, nice pretty dark amber colour, Not too strong alcoholic smell, hints of Oak, leather, Brown sugar and Toffee. First tastes light and but not too sweet, feels oakey, leather, later becomes more bitter in the back of the mouth, also caramel taste and toffee, not the most complex but very enjoyable if u like dry rums. Not the most sweet rum but honest cask flavours. I like it a little more fruity and sweet. altough a good rum to sip.
