Not nearly as smooth as I prefer. The description from the manufacturer is quite appealing: hints of pineapple, vanilla and banana. Although it is tropical tasting, the burn is not worth it. I don't find it sugary as some claim. For the money it's decent. Probably est served as a mixed drink.
Kasama small batch is incredibly aromatic. Even in the bottle you are slapped with tropical notes of pineapple, and toasted coconut.
In the glass these scents open up even more.
It palates like water, surprisingly smooth given the gold color and younger age. From the initial almost tasteless gulp it evolves into heavy notes of piña and coconut, some banana if you look for it. Definitely different from the flavor I'm used to out of an aged rum but in no way is this a bad thing.
It does have a mighty sweet finish, but throw it over large mold ice and it evens it out. While it might not be a go to, I was quite impressed with Kasama.
I had seen this rum listed in one of the Total Wine listings and ignored it since it had no reviews on here. Then I went to my local liquor store to get more Appleton 8 Year and to see what else was new. They had 4 new Hampdens at $70 each or more, so I left them there on the shelf. However, this one caught my eye for $25, so I brought it home.
Nowhere on the label does is say what proof of ABV%. I did not see this until I got home. Strike one! I opened it up and the aromas could make any room smell floral. Heavily sugared. Strike two! The label says Small Batch and Aged 7 Years. Liar, liar, pants on fire! Strike three! Then sipping this perfume. OMG, how on earth can anyone drink this stuff, but I have had much worse! Strike four and it gets my rating of 4. I would have been better off spending three times as much for that bottle of Hampden LROK. I now have a bottle of expensive fumigator.
