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.
Found this one today for a special price of € 27,- . Quite good on the rocks, but the taste is not what I expected. It smells a bit too sweet and the taste certainly matches that impression. But that comes from the diversity of flavours it has to offer: banana, strong apricot and a little bit of walnut. If this rum is not to your liking, it certainly was worth trying.
absolutely out of our rum planet! Ok, aromas are obvious, but I would say they hit you and bring you down to an easy home made drink or open your mind to the craziest bartending or gastronomy experience!
When I first tried it, it was a bit of a WTF moment. Really not like most rums and I wasn't sure whether I actually liked it. I certainly didn't dislike it, but now the more I drink it, the more I love it, and this really is up there with my favourites. The notes of cane shine through, and I agree with the tasting note on the back about coco, vanilla and tropical scents. However I would add banana to that. I give it to (discerning friends) and some just sit there sniffing it. Definitely different, and so much the better for it.
Notes de coco, banane, tonalités vanillées et une note finale boisée et épicée.
Je le sers plutôt en apéritif et son nez de banana Haribo fait toujours son petit effet :)
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.
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.
Enjoyed a glass of Arcane Extraroma from the Island of Mauritius on a rather rainy afternoon. Arcane Extraroma comes in a fancy black toned box with a nice blacked out bottle design and a pretty nice mint colored label. Color of the rum is semi dark. To me this rum reminds me of the very first sweet Rhum Agricole in the world. Unique for sure. Banana and marzipan are the strongest flavors to the nose and palate. Vanilla is secondary flavor and still quite strong.
Chouette rhum bien parfumé ! Les puristes du rhum agricole doivent s'abstenir car on vite penser que l'on a un peu forcé sur les arômes ... Mais bon, cela reste très agréable 😊
Too much vanilla tones on the palate for me, not as great as what it was raved up to be. This is only after my first taste neat but a good rum does not need to grow on you it should be instant love for it. I will use it as a mixer rum and for the money we pay for a bottle in Aus $100 I would drink the Diplomatico Exclusiva Reserva over this any day. It probably didnt help that I had high expectations for this but it didnt live up to more than a 7 for me.
I had an idea of what might discover while tasting the rum but it's a good surprise. It is clear that the banana is very present and coconut flavors but the balance is correct. I even suprised to drink another glass ;-)
To be reserved for special occasion or can be used with dessert assiocation.
Smell is not so great, banana, pastry cream... but the taste is unexpected. Advised!
Un Rhum sucré et fruité.Au nez effectivement on retrouve comme cela a été déjà dit la célèbre banane Haribo. On y retrouve également des notes de miel tirant même je trouve sur la cire d'abeille. En début de bouche on retrouve la banane, en milieu de bouche le miel se fait plus présent et accompagné de légères touches épicées.
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.
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.
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.
