Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Surprised me at the first sip. Gives the impression of being much stronger than it is. The first impression is quite raw, but mellows afterwards. Nice sweet taste, but not on a par with many other superb Venezuelan rums. The price however is quite good for the quality.
Had tasted much more better rums from Venezuela, is not mild enough / too strict and rather sprittig .
This venezuelian rum is to me, like all the venezuelian rums I tasted until now (Diplomatico or Santa Teresa) a very smooth and sweet rum! Excellent!
Tried this molasse based rum in Spain. Nice presence of toffee, vanilla and caramel aroma in the nose. Palate builds up on this with only minor burn. Fruity notes of overripe banana and walnuts. Good and lasting finish. In my opinion quite fair price-value level.
Toffee, coffee, dark brown sugar.
At the same level as Havana 7,
a pleasant taste of coffee,
is not ideal to drink smooth, good for cocktails.
Me recuerda un poco al Cartavio 12, aunque con menos aroma y sabor. Es un ron para tomarlo acompañado. Personalmente no me gustó mucho.
beaucoup trop sucré a mon gout, facile a boire mais pas complexe
A friend bought this in a supermarket in Spain during our vacation there.
There was not much rum to choose from, but it was meant to be empty after one night anyway...
Like someone here said: "The 500 Gran Reserva has a strong burn and not a whole lot of distinct flavors."
I agree... and on top of that I have to say the bottle is really boring and ugly.
It was quite cheap, so I guess that's something.
Nice spiciness and very smooth in my opinion. No alcoholic smell.
But >30€ are too expensive. If you get it cheaper and like spicy rums I would recommend it.
The bottle has an integrated measure pourer.
Zum Mischen kann man ihn nehmen, pure eher nicht. nicht mein Fall
Used to drink it when I was young mixed with anything I could get my hands on. good memories, regular taste
I liked this rum, the balance cost/quality is very good. The bottle has a mate looking that I liked. the bad part is that you can't see the rum through the bottle.
High sugar content, very sweet then, and notes of pastry, chocolate and caramel.
the hint of honey/measels made me love this rum. Excelent on the rocks, no complaints. Great Venezuelian spririt.
Feel chocolate, firstly stronger then it is. For this price good rum.
Es la selección de los mejores rones envejecidos hasta 8 años en barricas de roble americano. color ambar oscuro con aroma a roble vainilla y frutos secos , chispiante en boca y sabor afrutado.... excelente en las rocas o con jugo de frutas.
Se volete avvicinarvi al Rhum questo può essere il vostro primo passo, un rum semplice non complesso da gestire facilmente, abbastanza dolce, con un leggero sentore alcolico, qualità prezzo buona, per quel prezzo difficile trovarne di meglio.
Enjoyed the Cacique 500 Gran Reserva last year while vacation in Venezuela and I have to say this one is very far away from the much smoother Cacique Antiguo rum. The 500 Gran Reserva has a strong burn and not a whole lot of distinct flavors.
In der Nase sehr vanillig und caramellig. Er lässt erwarten sehr süß zu sein. Trinkt man ihn, überrascht ein ausgeprägtes Nussaroma, weniger Vanille. Insgesamt doch recht sprittig im Abgang und kaum langanhaltend im Geschmack.
Es ist sicher kein schlechter Rum, aber es gibt deutlich ausgewogenere. Ich war etwas enttäuscht.
This is a different rum than I was used to drink. The smell is not very pleasant, reminds me of paint. The taste however is much better. Herbs, spicy. Strong taste. I would buy this one again.
Don't go for the cheaper Cacique...trust me...thank me later!
One of the better dark aged rums... is a solid taste with a dark flavor but not smoked, no hangover never.
Nice sipper, but its bit raw still. Ice helps a lot, otherwise with strong burn. Decently added sugar.
