Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Arcane Extraroma is a 12-year old solera rum from Mauritius made from pure cane sugar and aged in French oak barrels.
You should read the label first before yiu buy this one. This is agricole rhum from Mauritius so it tastes like that but it has also very aromatic smell and taste on top of that standard agricole rum. Yiu have to get used to that to drink it straight. It reminds me bit of tutti frutti mix which I enjoyed when I was a kid but it is too much for me nowadays. It will most probably end up I n the back of the bar with Don Papa :)
První rum, který mi zakoupila manželka a moje první veřejná prohra při tajné ochutnávce - zařadil jsemho mezi lacinou sortu rumů ála Bacardi kontra Republika... sám netuším, proč, ale mýliti se jest lidské. Vynikající rum!
Von der Nase bis zum Abgang Frucht, Birne, Banane, Süße, Caramell.
Leicht alkoholische Note, etwas pelzig im Abgang.
Kommt ziemlich wuchtig.
Cooler Geruch, interessanter süßer Geschmack. Smooth.
Sipping on this rum right now... Apple flavour all around. Fresh, clean and a bit dry. Not to sweet. Nose is quite harshe but not bothering my Senses. Nice bottle and box!
Des arômes de banane se dégagent directement au nez. Surprenant et sympathique.
I felt sick by this one. It tasted " chemical " for me because of the numerous aromas.
Rhum agricole mais avec la douceur d'un rhum de mélasse. Banane, vanille, et grande longueur en bouche, tout en gardant la force de l'alcool. Un bon équilibre.
French agricole rhum style, but with the sweetness of a south american rhum. Strong banana, vanilla flavour and a long finish in mouth, with the strenght of the alcohol. Not too sweet, not too dry. A well balanced rhum.
Very interesting rhum to taste. Maritius, if I remember well, used to be French colony before being taken by UK. And it is notable in this rhum as well. Very nice bottle and presentation, but I still cant get rid off feeling that there is added sugar which isnt confirmed by producer. It is made from sugar can, not from molasses, so it is close to rhum agricole
Smell: Rich. Rich and unusual. Cococnuts, banana, almonds, marzipan, and some fruit that I am not able to recoognize. Sugarcane as well.
Taste: Tastes from half like typical agricole rhums, half like sweet elixir. You can taste the cane itself, but it is very very sweet. Marzipan and banana in taste, also some more fruit. Very good to drink on rocks. Nice combination and very original creation. But I definitely wouldnt recomend this to everyone, because even when this is unusual rhum, I think you can get better rhums in this price category. But you can give it a try in a bar.
This is the richest, most aromatic Agricole style rum I have tasted.
High quality product, Very cool, classy, simple, bottling.
It was task finding a seller for a USA order. (Fine Drams - Denmark).
Surprised me. 12 years goodie. Vanilla bit, toffee. Would taste again. Nice.
Mmmmm, hard to say how I feel about this rum. The smell isn't so good, I feel like I smell chocolate and cofee, although I think I'm the only one. Then the taste is not that bad, to sip neat, but again, pretty different from other rums I tasted. I think it's good for rum lovers but probably not for everybody.
Le nez offre des arômes de fruits tropicaux ,de cannes fraîches et d'épicés.
Au goût, un ensemble très harmonieux de notes de coco, banane, de tonalités vanillées et une note finale boisée et délicatement épicée
The bottle is surprisingly compact, with a dripping neck.
In aroma: barrel, alcohol, ripe banana, flowers.
Rich and long taste. Some difficulty swallowing.
Pleasantly relaxing. It is drunk easy and a lot, with loss of coordination and body heaviness, clear consciousness, good mood and without consequences in the morning.
Thin a gricole, cane juice! In the nose: candy sugar, pancakes at my mum's, banana, orange, pisang.... dried fruit... but they add fruit to the barrel and take it out again before adding the rum.... bit bizarre, yet it works.....
Let it sit.
The first sip straight from the box was an artificial banana so badly, I couldn´t believe anyone rated it above a 4. As it starts to work the banana eases off and you find vanilla and marzipan with a hint of other fruit. The aroma stays strong for hours (GF left hers unfinished and I found it the next day still with a pleasant aroma). The taste is slightly overpowered by the aroma but still pleasant as a sipper.
Lots of aroma. Vanilla, coconut, dark, more syrupy, creamy, long and strong after taste, lots of spice. Not the average type of rum. Exotic and good sipper if u want some thing different for a change.
I give 10 bottles for this one, because of my subjective taste. I really like it and enjoy drinking this one.
So much of taste after 12 years laying in wooden casks, it makes it more like some old French cognac.
Excellent, surely very good and glass full of pleasure.
Trochu zklamání. Možná jsou měl zbytečně vysoké očekávání.
Vůně mi připadá trochu umělá.
Vyvazena ovocna vune plna sladkosti a pri tom svezi a originalni. Chut ovocna, velmi prijemna. Perfektni volba, ktera me mile prekvapila.
Is something that you can't forget. Super colour, super aroma, super bottle. I hope is everything natural, but I think is to nice to be true...
In my opinion strange bottle...not typical, not my type. When you will open - great aroma. I was suprised that is so fantastic. Colour is good. First taste...veeery smooooth...One of the best in that I ever try. Very balanced...but...not my type. You can feel that is good rum...but I'm missing something there.
Well, i bought this one this summer and it's really something surprising. I didn't liked it that much, neither my brother or my cousins that were with me, but my father liked it, it's very strong in flavours.
You should try it if you're looking for something unusual.
Un ron de la isla Mauricio. Le encontré notas de banana, pimienta pero sobretodo menta y eucalipto. Personalmente no me gustó pero probablemente a otros les agrade, a mi no me gusta ni la menta ni eucalipto.
