4.5 and up! Don't be put off by the intense burn on the nose as this still very pleasant rum to drink at 56% abv. Everything is well balanced from the mouth feel and palate burn to the flavor and finish... the only real drawback I can find is that the nose is overpowered a bit by the alcohol burn. The flavor is complex and a bit hard to pin point all of the specific notes... I get light fresh oak, a variety of dry stone fruit, a hard to distinguish brine note as well as the traditional vanilla, sweet molasses like notes found in quality rum. The finish is extraordinary... this rum has a numbing effect on the palate that is delightful with a light citrus and very light licorice note appearing in the finish along with a very light and suprisingly pleasant ethanol note. This rum is special and I think Triptych is superior to Criterion, in my personal opinion, as Criterion is good but not as complex and has a very strong, somewhat unpleasant, chest burn that Triptych doesn't have at the same abv.
Great rum with plenty of fruits, cocoa powder, liquorice, some olives, a little brine. Nice texture & great mouthfeel. Do recommend it !
