The reason for owning this is quite obvious. It's not the liquid, wich is actually insanely overpriced as the bottle only holds 20cl. The rums best quality is the aroma. It's Sweet with notes of figs. From there on it's pretty much downhill. The palate is slightly sweet and spicy, with qualities that makes me think of white pepper and dry cactus. The aftertaste is lightly sweet and dry. It's a fun but in no way fantastic product. Considering the amount of rum in the bottle, similar money will buy you some of the best rums around.
