Truly a fantastic choice
Probably the best aged rum I've had in a long time, maybe ever. I'm more of a bourbon & anejo tequila guy but I found this so easy to drink! Love it neat even at 90 proof. Lots of wood, smoky oak, vanilla/caramel nose but bone dry. Amazing that there's no sugar. Great rum, killer bottle. It's new--I'm definitely recommending.
Light on the nose with a hint of caramel and toffee, the first sip fills the mouth with a subtle sweetness followed by hints of oak and maple with just a little warmth left behind and a lingering flavor that can only be described as "rum". Several layers that you have to take the time to pick out, with hidden notes of vanilla, apple cider, charred oak, and caramel. Bottled at 90 proof (45% ABV), this is a surprisingly smooth sipper to enjoy neat.
I found this rum to be very well balanced, woody and light with subtle notes of allspice and vanilla. When I looked into the origins of this rum, I was pleasantly surprised to find that it's blended from different rum regions/ countries. Perhaps this is the reason for the clear difference between Marque Reserve and the classic rums I've been buying for years. This will, without doubt, be my rum of choice moving forward. Absolutely love it!
Admittedly, I'm more of a bourbon guy... but i recently had a go with this and am now in love! Strong notes of vanilla and toffee coupled with island spices any rum should have followed by the smoky/woody barrel char that only ex-bourbon barrel aging can provide. Surprisingly sweet for a bone dry rum and deceptively smooth -- highly recommended!
Very smooth oak barreled rum with an amazing vanilla caramel finish. Well balanced considering it’s bone dry. The subtle notes of island spices and dark fruit melted in my mouth when I drank it on the rocks cognac style. Look forward to sharing it with my family and friends. Two thumb way up!
Appearance: Dark brown color, baltic amber on swirling leave even coat.
First Impression: Leather, balanced molasses, Medjool dates, vanilla, barrel char, spice (but no heat).
Taste: Subtle and complex at the same time. With initial sweetness on the first sip, it dries out to a dry complexity with fruits, allspice, vanilla, cinnamon, oak wood char. Slightly leathery, woody fade.
Yes, this beautiful bottle states it is a Extra Anejo Rum but as soon as you experience Marque you will be blown away by taste of the smoky, ex-bourbon barrel american oak! Absolutely amazing blend, says me and the dozens of friends I have shared with.
I'm a bourbon guy, however a friend introduced me to this rum in May and it is all I have been sipping since. I enjoy sipping it on the rocks. I was surprised by the bourbon similarities. It has a great blend of smells and flavors. There is a smoky oak flavor with vanilla and other spices. I was surprised by the lack of sugar, yet it has just the right sweetness. It has a smooth finish for 90 proof.
You will not be disappointed.
Marque Reserve with it’s strong notes of vanilla & toffee came through before I even took my first sip. As I was drinking the Marque, I loved how smoky and well balanced it was. I thoroughly enjoyed the Marque Reserve On the Rocks or in a Dark & Stormy.
