Nice stuff, good price/value ratio
19 May '15
I bought this bottle for around 20€ on amazon. Due to the bottle lable this rum got a finishing in sherry barrels, after a bit less than 7 years in burbon barrels. So a classic whisky-like mature process. One can sipp this stuff already and for this price its good value. It goes down well, but I assume the 10y and 12y of this brand will be more complex.
This rum doesn't tast too young. The alcohol is already well integrated. Generally the Demerara Rums improve with extra-mature in Sherry-oaks. I will only never understand, why this is not used as sales-argument, just like it is done in the Whisky industry.
Now after I finished the bottle, I tend to upgrade the Rum by one point, coz the sherryish taste convinced me more.
