Question About "Flamboyant Vieux Rhum", Mauritius

I would like to ask you some thoughts about this rum I've stumbled across while browsing through some online sales: have you ever tried it?
After reading some threads here, I'm pretty sure that angelsword (who seems to be an expert on Mauritian rums) has tried it and I'm looking forward for some suggestions about it.

Which kind of rum is it? Does it worth to buy it?

Thank you in advance for any reply!

Flambouyant is one of the best Mauritian rums. I can easily recommend it. It is gentler and more subtle than many rums with BIG flavor, but still very rich and complex. More well known rums that have a similar type of flavor profile might be Gosling's Old Rum, Clement XO, or Matusalem Gran Reserve.

Thank you. It sounds interesting.. you've made me want to try it!

Moreover It seems to be quite hard to find (at least within the EU), so I think I'm going to take the chance to buy it

I'll let you know my thoughs about it!
