Notes by Erik Voskamp the Dutch Rum Ambassador.
The nose is pleasant with a some sweet and wood.
Cane sugar with some cinnamon in the distance and light coconut, also clear oak and other types of wood.
An explosion of taste with sweet dates, coconut, oak, dried figs, somewhat tobacco, butter (but not greasy) and a little drier than initially expected.
A fairly soft finish where the vanilla is the first to come in, then some dry coconut.
In my opinion it stays a bit too short.
