Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This rum is funny, when sipping on ice it's extremely flavourful - just too much. It's a combination of vanilla, nutmeg, and molasses. The taste is actually a little fake, I'm guessing from flavouring being added after the fact. Short finish leaves a sweet honey, very little spice and a little sour.
As it wasn't a great straight sipper, I added coke. This took the edge off the strong flavouring well and left a mainly vanilla addition. Not perfect with Coke, but certainly an improvement.
I have edited this note several times. I started off with a 10, then 9 and down to 7, but back up to 8! There is lovely fruit and oak, but there is a dustiness to it that I am not sure I like. Sometimes it is appealing, other times it annoys. Given the price, I think it should be cleaner.
The immediate impression I got was a rum similar to Arcane Extraroma. But while that is a fruit bomb, this is more reserved and more complex. But the Arcane has a cleanliness to it, that this just can't match. Given the choice, I would go for the crowd pleaser - the Arcane Extraroma.
Now that the bottle is finished, I ask myself would I buy it again? I do quite like it, but I like the Arcane more.
Mozno mnohym nebude chutit, ale toto mi zahralo na chute.
Vzdy ked porovnavam s inymi, tak nakoniec skoncim pri tomto.
Silne mandle, sladke telo, prijemna dlha dochut.
Special rum. Beautiful color and bottle. Full taste, woody, dried fruite. Exotic smell. Smooth taste, sweet a little bit caramel and vanilla.
This rum is very fine, not strong, not alcohol feel in the mouth. Great finish. Much better then other well known rums.
Very delicious, smoothy, sweet, nice dark colored
Very good one to me. Thought I feel coffee taste, but roasted nuts instead with vanilla taste a tropical fruits. Oak cask then in Porto ones. The oak is also felt. Would buy another one again.
Well, this is a sweet, sweet rum, with lot smell of vanilla to me.
Still would be very nice drink just for me, I belive Arcane DElicatissime or Extraroma is better representative of Mauritius taste of rum.
Jemný, lahodný a zároveň dosť chlapský rum. Pije sa príjemne, chuť je plná trochu sladkastá s hladkým dojazdom.
Veľmi dobry rum, za priajatelnu cenu, sladká a a jemná chut. Maly nastup pocitu silneho alkoholu. Odporúčam
9/10, one of my favorites, great value for the money
We had this bottle with friends and aroma was the most discussed feature of this rum. Everybody was speaking about nuts, like almonds or hazelnuts. The taste is interesting too, ideal for exceptional occasions, one to remember. Can't image how special would it be to sip it on Mauritius.
Zajímavá lahev a ještě lepší obsah. Nejsem žádný rumový specialista, ale tenhle mi prostě chutná víc než HC Selection. Sladší a s výraznější chutí. Jen mi přiljde, že tahle lahev rychleji vysychá....
Nice color and bottle. It was recommended by couple of friends so I was pretty much hyped. Oakish, woody with combination of fruits.
Ive heard a story it has been made by czech guy on Mauritius, so what to say czech for czechs... but really soft piece with slight coconut taste
Did bump into this rum in Slovakia. Nice aroma and sweet fruity taste. Goes really well with caramelised pear. Never missing on my shelf.
Vynikajuci rum!!! Sladky, ale nie prilis. Nieje v nom nejako vyrazne citit chut alkoholu, trocha na zaciatku, ale hned to zmizne... je velmi jemny. Chuti mi viac ako otrepane Diplomatico 12y alebo Zacapa 23.
This is more 6,5 than 6, but it is not as sweet and too smoky rum
Vyrazna vanilka. Ze zacatku jemny, stredne sladky, ke konci prilis koreneny s podivnym "umelym" ocasem.
rich and pleasant smell, perfect taste....combination of vanilla coconut and fruit ( banana) not very alcoholic taste, nice end....for me one of the most interesting rums in midprice category....
universal for men and women.
Has some strange flavors added to it, cannot identify it exactly, but it is very unpleasant going down.
Interesting taste,impossible to say what I feel... Foreign faraway Mauritius.....good to try
Nice and smooth taste. exotic fruits Very nice bottle.
Although I am not big fan fruity and too overtasted rhums, this was a well balanced and tasty drink. Really pleased, reccommended.
