Vizcaya VXOP rum is produced from sugar cane that is distilled in small batches then aged for between 18 and 21 years in bourbon casks.
The Oliver & Oliver distillery that produces Vizcaya VXOP rum was founded by Oliver Juanillo in the 1800s. It originally operated in Cuba, but in the 1959 revolution moved to the current Dominican Republic location.
Sladký a voňavý , ale .... Nekomplexní tělo , jako by chyběl obsah alkoholu nebo doba v zrání v sudu . Ale láhev má tento rum opravdu luxusní .
This may be one of my favorite rums from this area. I have learned that this can not be my bench mark for judgeing all rums. The price alone made it a category all its own. This one had a beautiful silky smooth texture layered with an bitter vanilla and creamy caramel. This is an amazing rum and as I have used in numerous times as a suprise rum in my tastings it has never not been well recieved. I am not sure if whoever posted the 1rating is a rum fan.
After a long day at work and in most cases well into the night, I'll relax with a quality rum poured neat. The nose on first glance was exciting.... even interesting.... but the first tasting was not remarkable. The second, third tastings.... well, let's just say it started getting weird. I am not enough of a trained taster to make an in depth analysis, but I'll close by saying cotton candy and plenty of ice.
The nose is awesome, but the taste falls a little short. I'm a fan of the sweeter rums, and this one has a some sweetness, but is a little on the bland side. Hopefully the further into the bottle i get, the flavor becomes a little more complex.
6.5 on my scale, but bottles aren't half full or empty here. Maybe a 7. A slight hint of molasses, maybe a bit of oak. Interesting and seems to be better early than later. More research needed.
Paid $41.99 in NYC. The nose is nice with vanilla notes, almost like cream soda. Upon tasting, you can clearly taste the vanilla but not overpowering like Zaya. Quite smooth, delicious and worth buying again.
Most liquor I've tried has required breathing time after it's poured. This is mellow straight from the bottle. I am very impressed. It's got the vanilla taste I love in rums like Zara but without the sweetness. The nose is mellow without the alcohol bite. I wouldn't dream of mixing this or even adding a cube. I've rated several runs 9 cause I thought I was too inexperienced to call it ten. Well no more. This isv10
Overall a good sweet (not overly sweet) rum that is brilliant on the nose but lacks a bit of a taste. It is a bit boring in taste compared to others in its price category. I also found the finish to be rather rough.
Really nice, maybe a bit to expensive for this tast.... medium sweet, nice Integrated alcohol, but would prefer a litter more "power" on the taste - should last longer.
I liked this rum, because it is kind of well of everthing. Not to sweet, but seet enough. Nice nose, good in the mouth, but not long lasting.
Angenehmer Geruch, intensiver aber sehr feiner Geschmack nach Vanille...und das Sanft auf der Zunge, kaum wahrnehmbare Schärfe im Abgang. Für meinen Geschmack zu likörig, ein wenig brennen sollte hochprozentiges schon ;)
After reading so many good reviews I was looking forward to this one but was left somewhat disappointed. Yes, it's very smooth but after the the first taste I kept waiting for more flavors to start coming through but unfortunately they never came. Even the initial nose isn't as complex as other similarly priced rums. All in all it's a pleasant enough rum for what it is but just don't go expecting anything more.
I just purchased my first bottle of VXOP. The front end tastes of alcohol but it finishes with a long, lingering sweetness and smoothness on the back end.
Very smooth rum.
I didn't like the nose that much , but i love the taste. I love the more commercial tastes over the agricolle and this one is very sweet. Nice aftertaste. It lacks a bit complexity
Smell: Alcoholic punch in the face that fades after waiting 1 minute. Apricot and Honey (could smell orange marmalade)
Taste: Sweet, smooth finish, warming and a slight alcoholic burn, honey and apricot with notes of vanilla.
A good introduction for people new to aged rums.
One of the best value on the market.
This Rum is authentic, very balanced, sweet but not sugary...it has a lot of oak.
Stop reading reviews, just buy it !
