My purchase was solely for the Bottle. Once I picked it up I knew it was top quality packaging. So upon tasting I loved the aroma, color and legs. Truly a beautiful sipping rum

Lekkere rum met vele smaken om te ontdekken, lekkere afdronk en fruitige neus.

I had to try this when I saw the bottle and ,although I don't have a lot of experience, from what I've tried, its the best so far.

Avis novice: achat compulsif, pour le look de la bouteille. Ce rhum m'a ouvert la porte au monde du rhum :).
Gustativement abordable pour 1 palais novice, plutôt sec

Okay, it has a creepiness factor of 10 which makes it stand out from all other rums out there in regards to containers. However can it stand apart from other rums in regards to flavor?

Nope.

First off the color is a light amber...closer to a yellow color in some apple juices. It has a slight sugar cane aroma with fair amount of astringency reminding me of ethanol. The flavor isn't too bad. Not great but it hits you with some sweetness and vanilla/toffee tones which then fades into a rather decent burn. Being that it's a blend of sugar cane juice and molasses it does have a bit of an agricole edge to it. The aging gives it a bit of oak bitterness bordering on objectionable but not quite. It ALMOST is a sipping rum but misses just by a tad. However it does very well as a mixer.

I recommend buying one bottle at least for the appearance and if you like it, buy another and tell your guests they were traveling salesmen....WERE....

Okay...feeble attempt at humor.

Not a bad rum. However it really doesn't stand out from other similarly aged rums. Therefore I can't go higher than a 7 here.

I must say the crazy looking bottle contains a solid dry rum, reasonably smooth, light nose of coffee, chocolate and spices, the taste is dark chocolate, coffee, spices, bit of vanilla and a hint of charred oak, the aftertaste resembles dry red wine. Not bad, but a little bit overpriced in my opinion. Score between 6 and 7.

I've tried a few Rums from Mexico and was not impressed, but this one is really pretty good. Nice flavour, seems a bit dry like a dry wine. I drank it straight and enjoyed it from start to finish. I thought the bottle was the thing and the rum might be terrible but both are a good conversation starter. Maybe the best bottle in the business to give your bar some character.

Its strong punch the first sip. But smooths out with coffee, allspice chocolate, and nutmeg. But goes down smooth.
