Tasty, but not quite great
Tried the Ron Los Valientes 10y on a rainy day. The bottle looks pretty nice, but not high end. The color is deep dark. Smell test reveals a lot of oakiness but even more soapiness and the woody theme continues all the way to your palate. Very long finish with a very nasty burn at the end. Ron Los Valientes 20th earned 7, 15y earned 5 and 10y struggles for a 4.
Bottle looked nice, rum was medium brown color, but then the rum surprised me by its harsh/bitter taste, very strong nose and the somewhat "tequila" taste in the throat. I am more into sweet rums, that's why I rate here quite low.
A nice rum to sip, haven't tried the 15 year one yet so that is why I have chosen an 8. Smooth with a slight Smokey and caramel taste, slight burn as it hits your chest.
In the nose i find a hint of plums, then oak and sugarcane.The flavour has a slight balanced fire and its molasses, dried tropical fruits, a slight hint of the sugarcane juice but not grassy and herbal. Its not a heavy rum, its rather light in character.
