Nose: gaining much amplitude after a few minutes of aeration, Lukum sweet, sweet flagrances, gourmand notes of candied fruit

Mouth: treacle, banana, spices, sweet, rancid

Final: aftertaste leaves cigar, rancio

Remarkable nose ... clearly my favorite of the session!

Nose: Exotic fruits, lemon and lime, orange.

Taste: Exotic fruits, lemon.

Final: exotic candied fruits.

Comments: Delicious and very exotic. Dangerously easy drinkable. Lacks a bit of complexity however.


Colour: Amber
Nose: very bright, with fairly deep woody notes (old furniture) and a delicious exotic fruit (passion fruit), quite spicy, it also has notes of softwood bark and citrus fruit (peels) and almonds, beautiful power and complexity
Mouth: rather sharp attack, it starts with a woody side then come the exotic fruits, bark, citrus peels. Juice cane appears next, the alcohol is well integrated, it is nice and tasty, average length on cane juice with a slight bitterness that gives a bit of resistance to the whole

“Maybe Dos Maderas? Looks like slightly aged ( solera maybe? ) in sherry casks. Quite good anyway”
This dram has a tawny-like color.

Nose (88): (5)more than average. brown sugar, spices, toffee, wood, chupa chups, mango.

Taste (89): powerful, oily. brown sugar, citrus, spices, vanilla, wood, peaches, nuts.

Finish (89): (5)longer than average. brown sugar, wood, citrus, nuts.


beautiful dress beautiful legs
amber, orange reflections

rather fresh nose (cane) fruity (vinous, dry and green fruits), alcohol tickels your nose, which is gentle on the wood and spices (ginger, cinnamon, oak), notes of coffee and licorice

the palate is soft and pleasant, notes of butter and sugar, licorice and spices very present but never invasive.

good length that warms slowly and fades nicely, gently spicy.

Colour: Old gold to amber
A superb nose where spices (sweet pepper, nutmeg, cinnamon, anise) are present and together with the sweetness of cane make it a great mix giving the rum a nice complexity while perfectly balanced. Extremely engaging anyway.
On the palate, the rum first is quite discreet but shows up quickly powerful spicy notes with a hint of woody bitterness. This contrast gives it a nice complexity, although we would have liked at times a little more punch. But here is the lover of whisky talking.
The finish is long and this blend of spicy bitterness takes over.

Nose: A little chocolate and raspberry in the first place. Then the mint and lemon appear. Finally a little marzipan embraces other flavors. A beautiful diversity among typical elements (chocolate, lemon) and surprises (mint, almond paste) to a beautiful nose.

Taste: A nice explosion with lemon, chocolate, spices and a little fresh mint. It lacks a bit of body but freshness is really nice.

Final: OK, on the mint and a hint of spicy bitterness.

Comment: A very cool rum, ideal for the summer season. The presence of mint lightens everything and gives it character. The omnipresence of lemon is a bit too much in the mouth but I must admit that this rum remains pleasant.

red gold
medium intensity, fairly well integrated alcohol (slightly tongue tingling but not disturbing) half weet / half dry profile, minty freshness, old leather, sandalwood
low to medium intensity, well integrated alcohol, sweeter in taste than on the nose, molasses, sandalwood
short to medium


Colour: Burnished.
Nose: Starts rather fruity (redcurrants) before unfolding on spicy and even meaty notes. Quite some organics, and more brown sugar after a while.
Mouth: Sweet and easy. Slightly too easy, actually. Lacks a little oomph to my liking. Better take a big sip! Biscuity. Shortbreads and cinnamon. Speculoos?
Finish: Same slightly cloying sweetness than in a banana-praline cake.
Comment: A rather honorable middle range sweet and biscuity rum. Not the best, not the worst.


Aromatic herbs, thyme, marshmallow, vanilla. It's pretty bright. The nose is very nice and made ​​me think a lot of a bourbon.

The attack on the varnish and bubblegum and strawberry but it's dry and bitter and quite alcoholic. Always herbs. The finish is dry also. The mouth also makes me think of a bourbon

Nose: a little moderate or too melted. Nice balance anyway. No real change at aeration.
Taste: silky texture, fresh attack (mint) then .... Radio Silence!
short final
Conclusion Can not be bad, lack of presence!

Whisky is an alcoholic drink. Let's prefer quality to quantity as the abuse of alcohol beverages can damage the health. Consuming alcoholic drinks during pregnancy, even in small quantities, can seriously affect the health of the child.
