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

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.

I myself find this one pretty pleasent rum with a hint of salt. If this was a whisky it would be Arran. Salted caramel noches, suitable for a cocktail or straight.

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.

Rum davvero interessante, delicato e unico, come le altre produzioni della distilleria, avvolge nelle sue note di cioccolato e caramello che si armonizzano con quelle dolci e fruttate, con un finale profondo e corposo e tanta personalità, da provare
