Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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)
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.
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.
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.
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.
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,
Smooth rum, goes down easy with a silky finish.
Spicy on the front, but flat on the back because its a bit dry.
