Příjemná vůně pomerančů i chuť pomerančů a dubového dřeva. V delším v závěru cítím na jazyk příjemnou chuť tropického ovoce.

Smooth. Gentle, yet robust and flavorful. This rum would make a beautiful addition to any bar.

Super rum. Zaujímavý blend. Sedela mi tá ostrosť, pomaranč mi vôbec nevadil. Určite si kúpim fľašku

Great combination of some Agricole and bajan rum. Would be great as the base of a Mai Tai. Delicious blend

The African sugar cane part is dominant for my feeling. This is what's I'm missing a lot in "regular rum". It is bold, smooth and extraordinary. No touch of alcohol from it's 43°.
Fruity, a yota spicy and easy on palate. Average long aftertaste.

Thanks Foursquare!

Tried this on a whim. Great initial attack and a smooth after taste. Would get this again. But it’s a premium.

Oh wow! The nose is pretty bland, not a lot to smell there. But the body is nice and full with so many different tastes coming in and out! It's nice and rough, I could taste raisins, oak, some leathery notes. You can feel the age in the finish. If the taste was stronger and the nose was more present and pleasant it could be a ten!

first time i try a rum blend from totally different zones, nose gentle rum, not much alcoholic burn, some sweet aroma that tell me it s a rum ! half from the penny blue producer and half from foursquare distillery ...
in the mouth: sweet (natural sweetness, is not cloying), oak and vanilla, orange peel, some banana and pineapple, really sweet rum (for a non added sugar rum), fruity, the oak is not so predominant ...
finish, warm, sweet, it stays medium-long in the mouth ... it s balanced, half matured in ex cognac barrels that gives that winey taste and half in ex bourbon casks that give us the vanilla flavor, plus a lot of fruits and it have a decent ABV (43 %)
price good, considered is a 8 to 10 years old and half of the rum is transported from the other side of the world is cheap for what it gives ...
my rating here is an 8 plus 0,5 for the price, so i will give it a 9 ! i was not expecting something exceptional but it is better than many rums i tried that have 12 or 20 on the label ... a solid one that i will for sure buy again before it s gone !
i recommend this one to people that love sweetened rums because it have a good level of natural sweetness ...
