Column and alembic distillation, maturation in new French oak barrels and bourbon barrels. Sweet aroma: cherries in chocolate, cinnamon, cloves. Taste: honey, propolis, slightly ginger. Spicy, sweet finish, nuts, ginger, cinnamon and honey, figs.

Sweet. Lot of caramel. Nose better than taste. Very short and simple aftertaste
Nice though to fill the boring evening

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.

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 โ€žextra darkโ€œ rather than โ€žextra noirโ€œ

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..

My second Takamaka, after the very forgettable St. Andre bottled with an ABV of 43%. Very light and sweet nose that at first smells mostly like Kirschwasser (eau-de-vie from cherries). After some time it opens up a little and I get some vanilla and oak enrobed in fudge. On the palate it gets a bit more backbone despite all the sugar added. Oak, spice, vanilla and stone fruit and a rather present alcohol.

Nothing bad about this rum but also pretty forgettable and way too sweet for my taste. Price/quality ratio seems very fair but only when you are into sweet(er) rums.

A spicy, light sweet smell, light sharp, some vanilla and coconut. The taste is rather light, some sweetness and alcohol, not much else. The finish is quite short.

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