Very smooth but for my taste, too sweet and too much of a banana note.
It taste like very sweet banana but don't worry, it's really good.
Like candy. Lots of vanilla and cooked banana flavours.
This was a new addition at our provincial liquor store so I figured, time to try something new.
Yes, the nose is (as others have noted) banana, with toffee, caramel and some vanilla notes. First sip, I was taken back to my youth, and the marshmallow banana candies I used to eat.
Sweet for sure, but the finish was quick and lacking in body to back it up. I'll try it again, but found it to be a little lacking on the qualities that make a true, high quality liquor.
If the site MOD can use the pic attached for the bottle, that'd be great.
Not what I was expecting. Very sweet with strong flavours of banana and caramel. It appears to me as a liquid desert. Taste is good for a liqueur, not so much for a rum...
Reviewing rum was never so easy and straightforward. This is just purely combination of bananas and toffee. This goes for taste and also for smell. It really feels like bananas and toffee are the only two ingredience in this rum. Rum also feels very heavy so I am recomendiong only small sips, possibly as a dessert. Definitely not for all night drinking.
This rum has a wonderful nose. Super smooth, slightly sweet with hints if caramel and vanilla. I love it so far
I was surprisef when i saw 15y aged. I honestly don't taste the age tha much. If you compare it to other 15y old standard (ie ED15) it misses complexity, but !!! The taste is amasing good. I wasn't expecting it. Full of fruty notes on a base of vanila. Perfect for a summer, or after a desert. Less vanila then a dzama, more balanced, smooth sweet rhum. This was one of the 3 bottles i bought at the last rumfest. I just think the 15y complexity is missing (5/10), but as a spiced rum it's (9/10) so i give it a solid 7
Silne aroma pecenych/zralych bananu. Netradicni ale prijemny rumovy zazitek. Rozhodne stoji za to zkusit.
The nose smells very sweet. Llashings of caramel and toffee.
"It barely even tastes like alcohol in any way shape or form. No mid palate and definitely no finish not even the slightest hint of alcohol burn. Maybe a little bit of woodiness as it goes down."

Assez bon rhum epice.note 6.6 6 out of 10
Rhum épice de qualite pour un epice.par contre en degustation le rhum est trop sur un le gout banane caramel.le nez est sur des notes balsamiques et de bananes sur muries.mais la sucrosite et un gout qui s estompe n en font qu un rhum festif pour des non connaisseurs .le gout ne vaut pas ses 36 euros.par contre la bouteille est magnifique et fait voyager a l epoque des pirates.....fan du flacon mais moins de son contenu qui se rapproche d un arcane extramora mais en vraiment moins bon.
