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.

I think this is definitely a top choice for sipping. Not too sweet or overly flavored. Smooth and easy to enjoying particularly with a nice cigar.

Un bon rhum de dégustation, puissant.
Nez peut être un peu agressif, mais agréable en bouche. Notes de caramel et boisées.
Note de réglisse en finale.

Sugar: 5 gpl. Soft on the nose and very smooth going down. Nice caramel aroma with a soft oak taste. Not a lot of burn but what there is sticks with you for a while. So soft it will sneak up on you in a mixed drink as it tends to get lost in the mix. If you don't like a strong rum taste in your mixed drink then this is a good rum. In a pinch this could be a sipping rum. Great value here in Canada at $39.
If you can't decide what to buy, then give this one a try.

Este ron es una desilusión total, a pesar de que es añejo su sabor no es agradable

big favourite of mine. Great value for performance. Love the almond/nut smell as well as the chocolate. Taste is great, sweet, yet with touch of alcohol. Just loving it

A really soft and gentle rum, fruity and sweet. At the Price a very decent rum, a good sipper, and great for desserts.

Jede produzierte Flasche ist mit verschiedenen Nummern versehen und gilt daher als echte Rarität. Kann ich im Geschmack nicht ganz nachvollziehen.

Had a few rounds of this at a bar in the dominican republic. It's a good rum with a nice and soft scent of caramel and figs. The palette offer notes of burt sugar, oak and caramel, with a rather smoothe finish. Good value.
