4 Stars, Highly Recommended, F. Paul Pacult.
'I like the toastiness of the initial aroma as well as the saline/see breeze quality of it; secondary whiffs pick up faint hints of dried sage, new leather, dried flowers, sea salt, dark caramel. Entry is lusciously sweet, honeyed, brown sugar-like, intense; mid-palate turns spicy, tangy, rich in texture, more bittersweet than sweet, beany (cocoa). Extra-long finish, a touch grapy/raisiny, dark chocolate-like. Perfect alcohol level for dark rum, which ensures grip and structural substance. To my way of thinking, a master piece of harmony and power.'
