Starts with a spicy hit and then mellows to a fruity and almost coffee like flavour. Also hints of butterscotch. Definitely has added sugar.

I do not know how anyone could pass on this rum. It is a coconut based rum, and is decently sweet. It is very smooth, not only to the tongue, but to the nose as well. This is the only rum I can drink straight anymore. The first time I had this, I drank it straight out of the bottle, on a beach in Seychelles (where it is from). A few friends of mine had the idea to crack open a coconut, pour it in, and drink it that way. This rum just feels smooth when you drink it. When you take your first whiff, you are hit with a sweet, vanilla/coconut aroma. It should make you want to drink the bottle right then and there, but we want to enjoy ourselves, right? When you take the first sip, it feels like a smooth creme in your mouth, but somehow still liquid. The taste on your buds will make you wonder why you never tried this rum before. I am bad at separating flavors, so for you that have super taste buds, I am sorry. The only thing I can say is that if you do not enjoy this rum, then you are probably looking for the "highly rated" rums whom of which have tastes that are competing with bourbons, and smell like rubbing alcohol. I understand that is the "traditional rum" way, like the British Navy used to get. Let's face it though, there is a reason we started mixing our drinks, because it wasn't that good to begin with. This rum, you can drink straight. I love this rum so much, that it is in my only decanter, and my wife ordered it (from Seychelles) for my wedding gift.

Luckily I didn't pay for this bottle and I'll be sure to pass on it next time if it is offered to me once again.

Good for coctails and tea. Too spicy for drink by itself.

It says "dark", but comparing it with south American rums it is very light.
The fragrance is very good, like a sweet vanilla with some walnut, the taste however a bit disappointing, I can not find any special character or describe any typical flavor.
Probably good for cocktails but alone is not a big deal

Baxic but exotic, not bad. Vanilla and tropic fruits

Note floreali intense ed esplosive avvolgono la leggerezza del resto, perรฒ un gusto unico
