Never been to Seychelles.. saw it on the shelf of UAE duty-free.. was sceptical.. but my missus "WOW'ed".. she was so optimistic about this one (though she has no clue about Rum), that she convinced me do get one..

It is GOOD for that price range. A bit harsh to sip, but you can get one of the best "Cuba libre" with this one

The company was founded only in 2002.

Nose: Some oak and caramel, maybe even some hints of banana, but all pretty shy. Let breathe for a while.

Palate: sweet and pretty young (shy in taste). Nothing extraordinary, but ok.
At least more aromatic than the St.Andre edition.

7, with a Newcomer Bonus.

Note: the sign may also say „extra dark“ rather than „extra noir“

Note: I'm a sipper. My opinion is based on sipping characteristics.

At 43% vol, I expected it to burn a hole in my mouth but the fact of the matter is it was as mild and velvety as it gets. Could not find information about its actual age at the time but considering the brand is 20-ish years old and their signature product is 7 years old, I assume this was aged between 5 and 7 years. And is quite good. A dash of water opens it up even more.

Solid - a bit to sweat - but for the money asked (20 Euro) a burner.

Nose: like a real rum, some wood, do not feel any spices, pretty plain. Taste: soft, not spirit, good to sip in general. But almost no any aftertaste..

A medium rum, sugar added, short aftertaste, sweet...too sweet.

Nice with a lot of ice or with coke, worth to try anyway.

Heavy bottle with convex inscription Seychelles and dull label. Modest smell emitting resin. Downplayed taste of coffee and cane, little sour. This rum is dry, robust, caring at the finish. I did not become a fan of Takamaka, but it pleasantly warms.

Экзотика с берегов Индийского океана. Тяжёлая бутылка с рельефной надписью "Сейшеллы" и тусклой этикеткой произведена во Франции. Очень скромный аромат не обещает чудес. Вкус в индийском стиле с колеблющимися нюансами кофе, мелассы и фруктовой кислинки. Крепкий, сухой, тактичный.
