Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This is the most wonderful rum which I drank. Unfortunately I of Bulgaria will not be able to buy it.
Definitely a rum worthy of special occasions. To me there is a slight sweetness to it with a good warmth and not any harsh burn. Very light. Works extremely well in Coke Zero although most would recommend it by itself on or the rocks. Works any way you wish.
This is my go-to rum when I am in Colombia. Smooth, flavorful, and a great value. I will drink this suave lady neat, and not feel guilty having her as a CubaLibre.
Sin querer me tope con este clásico de costo medio ofrece equilibrio en calidad precio
Today I finally try my bottle of Ron Medellin Gran Reserva delivered to me from Colombia. First, this rum has a lot more character than añejo. It is a smooth, sweet, but still light rum. Like añejo, it has a very mild flavor characteristic of bourbon but nothing like añejo. It has a slight taste of vanilla and Colombian sugar cane.
This is definitely a sipping rum as a would not dare mix this in anything.
Light golden, nice initial spicy taste, lack complexity of some other rums but an enjoyable drink
Very nice natural ron from Colombia. No added sugar, no added flavor, no added colour. If you are fan of natural rums without added sugar, this one is deffinitely for you. I really enjoy it and only explonation I have for these bad reviews is that crybabies wants their sugarbombs. Only thing I dont like is the paper box, which is really badly designed and ron is hard to close inside it.
Nose: A bit of wood, a bit of tobacco, and a bit of chocolate. Nothing extremely intense.
Taste: Natural smooth taste of rum, without sweetness, without any aditions. Wood and a bit of spiciness, also almost no burn in the end. Not the best rum from Colombia, but worth of trying for sure. Really hard to get in my country.
Un moelleux étonnant, la mise en bouche est très agréable ( le doseur est pratique), je gouterais surement le 8 un de ces jours !!!
Fantastic and different rum. Not sweet for a 12 year old. I love that. But the best is it smells and tastes a bit like toasted hazelnuts, brillant. Awesome for drinking pure and for mixing with Coke too, but never mix with lemon or lime as the hazelnut flavour gets neutralized. Similar to Santa Teresa Linaje but smoother and with more flavour.
Una buena opción para los Rones de largo añejado. Sobre todo por su precio al alcance de todos. Se deja tomar incluso sólo o con un poco de agua..... Le da cuerpo a un buen cocktail preparado a invitados especiales
Dont used for mixing, it will be a waste. This rum is strong but no too much, you can sipping a long with the enjoy of the flavor of oak.
doux, vanillé, pas très complexe, un rhum léger et à la fois plat en bouche il s'efface rapidement, on en redemanderai, il laisse en fin de bouche une sensation de frais, comme après avoir manger de l'estragon,
This is a decent rum, unique flavors but still tastes like rum. Has a hint of lighter fruits, no sweetness what so ever and leaves your mouth enjoying the flavors. 12 year at a decent level of complexity.
My first ever rum, or at least sipping rum. It's a good choice for beginners and I enjoyed it but I would be interested to go back and try it now I have other points of comparison.
A friend of mine brought this bottle from over there, nice rum. Very tasty, little burn. not that long lasting.
Lucky for me, my dad married a Colombian woman and goes to Columbia to see your family each year. He always bring me back a bottle or two so it's a staple in my house. Definitely a good option when I don't know what to drink.
Honestly took me by surprise. Not a bad drop. The flavor is not amazing and the flavor is good. Most importantly it is not overwhelming sweet.
For a beginner to Rum tastings it's perfect.
This ron drinks easy. Price quality is ok. If you go for older rum (above 7 years) then this might not be your choice. However it is a fine and better rum then the younger ones
Compared price-wise this would be the best rum to buy. But quality-wise it also stands out. Smooth and warm feeling in the mouth, not too strong aroma. Still have to compare it with the 10 year anniversary, but in the meantime, good enough for me!
Really an enjoyable rum. Smooth but still interesting with a little spice. Short finish and not too oily. Probably good for rum rookies but maybe not complex enough for experienced rum drinkers
Smooth rum, goes down easy with a silky finish.
Un ron que mantiene los sabores característicos de un buen ron colombiano.
Ron Medellin siempre demuestra su elevada categoría con rones de esta gran calidad.
Sweet aroma. The taste, not so much but with a fruity flavor at the start. Ends dry with a good amount of oak present. Enjoyable but very short finish and dryer than I usually like. I prefer sipping rums, and this isn't a bad one. Just doesn't stand out at all. Would drink again if offered to me but not one I will be purchasing for my shelf.
Cant recall much outside from caramel and cinnamon.
It was a long series of rum tastings in Colombia but we all preferred the 10 years anniversary Extra Anejo (post to follow)
