Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Maybe too sweet for hardcore rum drinkers, but for me it's perfect as a digestif with a cigar
Yes, it's very sweet. A ladies rum so to speak. But actually it's not a bad rum at all, it's a good sipper, ideal for parties.
I have been considering 6 or 7 but because of this was one of the first rums which helped me to enter to the 'rum world', it is solid 7. It is true that the flavor is very sweet, but the sweetness somehow makes sense in this bottle. I can feel a strong taste of honey and raisins inside. I recommend it for ladies, most of them love it!
Sample size: big - few bottles
What a great rum, wonderfull taste, soft and gently. Bijzonder verrassend ook.
Such a big difference with the legendario anejo what i think was a big waste of time.
Super Fijn rummetje met zachte maar sterkte smaak....... Beetje stroperig
I`d put it on the same level as Serum Elixir. Good liquor which would be perfect for drinking with women.
Not bad, not strong (34% alcohol), but too sweet for my taste.
Very disappointed on the 7 year Elixir de Cuba since the 15 year Gran Reserva is one of the best rums I have ever tasted from well over 500 rums, and this 7 year has nothing to do with an aged rum. This is pure syrup, it cannot be enjoyed neat, I haven't been able to find a way to mix it with anything as of yet, so the bottle is just gathering dust until I find a better use for it. It is amazing how the best of the best rum and one of the worst rums can come from the same manufacturer.
Amaizing rhum for nice evening with girl. Mostly in first touch, she dont like that. But everytime I say: Wait a few seconds honey... And after that... Bottle was empty everytime and: This is really sweet rhum and everything with sugar makes a girls happy and horny... :D
Moc dobry rum. Dost sladký, chutná i drahé polovicce.
A avoir dans sa cave, pour se faire plaisir en fin de soirée : facile à boire (trop même), à servir glacé (stocker au congélateur), il s'agit presque d'un bonbon liquide (notes caramélisées). Il a le même goût que le sirop pour la toux que je prenais quand j'étais enfant (Topl..il). Pour ceux qui n'aiment pas les alcools forts
Quite a sweet bottle, there's obvious flavourings of sugar (but not burnt, like a caramel or toffee) and raisins. The nose is almost like inhaling an angel's share of white rum - very heavy alcohol burn, with little flavour indicators - yet that betrays how smooth the elixir washes down. Hard on the nose, but easy on the tongue. Slight tingle on the throat in small and medium sips, longer, but still quite manageable, burn on a larger sip.
Texture wise, like a "rummed" down syrup, wants to be unctuous, but not quite reaching the viscosity. Colour is golden, may become mahogany in darker settings - see photos for contrast. Will glide past the tongue, and slip down the throat smoothly, but won't "wash down" if imbibing with lunch or dinner.
A rating of 7 is appropriate if you wished to pick up a Grappa or Cuba-inspired digestif, but this elixir is not a substitute for a rum drink, mixed or otherwise. I would give it a 5 for a Rum rating, but it's a different beast altogether.
Disclaimer: I taste (and drink) all my alcohol (mostly rum) seco, i.e. straight, no ice. If you wish to use this as a mixed drink, please look at another review (which you should be doing anyway, I'm just one man with a subjective palate after all) for a more complete reference.
Za mňa tento elixír už nikdy viac. Sladkosť na úrovni medicíny,ďaleko vyššia ako pri Pyrate,Riise Sauternes a podobných "lepidlach". Kto nemá doma med a chce sladký extrém..možno sa v ňom nájde.
Por estos precios no hay nada mejor en el mercado.
Buen equibrio entre el alcohol y el sabor. Es la clave, este ron, en si, no tiene nada especial. NADA.
Recuerda a uvas pasas y al maldito sirope de azucar....
Delicate taste with nice aroma and pleasant ending.
Sweet, sweet, sweet, taste a little of rum but mostly sugar...
A shame this is not readily available in the UK as it is a great tasting Rum and as it is so different it always feels special to drink.
Vôňa je nasladlá, po hrozne a hrozienkách.
Chuť je veľmi sládka, likérová (sladší rum som ešte nepil). Ideálny skôr pre ženy pre svoju jemnosť a sladkosť.
Farba je tmavá, až čierna.
Na môj vkus je tej sladkosti príliš, ale kto má rád rumové pralinky, tento rum si zamiluje :)
This rum resembles liquor, thick, sweet, priory. I don 't like this profile, perhaps sweet lovers will like it
To harsh for a liquer, it burns. I prefer more rum Serum which is more gentle.
This one serves it’s purpose and is bloody tasty doing it. Very transparent about being a liquor. Great raisiny taste, silky mouthfeel and was one of the few things I could muster when I had bad indigestion on holiday (Prague - it seemed to be in literally every bar).
Dont..dont really dont drink this one..whatever it is.. :D
Very very sweet. It's like sugercane syrup.
However, it has no hursh, and has no strange flavor.
Not so bad.
Es un ron que entra muy bien porque sobre todo es dulce, no tiene fuerza y eso que tiene 34 grados, para mí no es un ron se queda a medio camino entre los licorcitos para para la pastas (ron miel) y los de verdad
