Tasty, but not quite great
I can’t believe this has so little aging to it. Lots of funky, banana-y aroma and flavor. A hint of liquid smoke aroma. I also taste something like those salty burnt pieces you find in a bag of sunflower seeds. When the rum hits front of your tongue, you get a creamy vanilla flavor. Overall a really nice rum with lots of character.
What to say. This is great in a Wray & Ting. It has a great funky banana flavor with a lot of HOGO, but it also has a somewhat off-putting gasoline note similar, but less palatable, to phenols in Islay Single Malt.
Just pure burn, do not take a shot of this stuff if your over 50, it’s pure Engine fuel, I think you mix it in rum punch with some sweeter golden rum and serve it on the tourist boats to take you there.
Had a little sip neat. Mentale!!
However put in a daiquri with another rum as a base. Very nice daiquri. It’s definitely one for mixing and finishing off tiki cocktails.
This is by far my favorite overproof rum. It has loads of funk, it’s a beautiful images rum full of flavor.
Not much to add that hasn’t already been said. On the nose I get bananas mixed with cinnamon but with a little water, those super funky esters go pungent, like a mix of swamp water, soy sauce, and sesame seeds. It’s pretty fascinating! The palate is different than the nose: floral, something like Juicy Fruit gum, and and a faint spearmint note - lovely! This is always going to be a polarizing rum - the amount of funk will attract or repel, depending on the person. It’s never gone to be a typical sipper for me but it has great character. A classic.
Aye, it took a few whiffs to get past the overwhelming smell alcohol, but once I got there, I found a bit of fruit, a bit of oak, a bit of sweet, and a bit of spice. Powerful smell. Avast! I can smell colors now! She smells like she be sweet on the tongue, but no. Not at first. This wench be complex when it comes to taste, and it takes more than one sip to find anythin'. Spices first, then burned sugar, then banana and fruits, then just as she starts getting sweet and friendly, she leaves with all your loot and nothin' but the taste of iodine in your mouth and an burn that never lets go. Just like me ex-wife. Aye, you could spend time sippin' this, and after a few, you probably wouldn't care, but I wouldn't recommend it. Nobody has that much loot. arrgh!!!
