Ultimate Beverage Challenge 94 points - Intriguing nose of cocoa bean, clementine and oiled baseball glove start this rum off. Rich, viscous with toffee, sea-like minerals and a welcome hint of citrus pith combine to create a complex mouthfeel and culminate in a robust, lengthy finish. (Apr 2014)
Wine Enthusiast 90 points - The initial aroma includes scents of treacle, spice and flower garden; further aeration brings out aromas of black pepper, cola nut, dried red fruit, and molasses. The palate entry is long and toffee-like; at midpalate honeyed, apple butter-like, and creamy flavors add zesty spice to the aftertaste. (Dec 2005)

Predominant aromas rich, mellow, oak character and the sweet, banana-type aroma of a well matured double distilled rum. Light, burnt-wood character with a subtle sugar cane note.
