I love rum! Dark, sweet, smooth rum! I really do. And this rum on paper has everything needed to satisfy me, but it really doesnt...
Not a rum for beginners , it can be considered too strong or aggressive for some people because of their strong aromas. Contrary to what many think, is not a 30 years rum , but about 10 years (not much ) , was released to commemorate the thirtieth anniversary of the Rum Imperial and demands a knowledge on rums to enjoy the same . Perfect companion for good cigars and is the current owner of the title of world's best rum, not easy to find nor cheap , because I think that only produce about 7,000 bottles a year, not sure. It is amazing and totaly worth it!
Not bad, but mostly sweet (caramel). And to be honest, for the (not so sweet) price and high age of this rum I expected a bit more (complexity).
The barcelo imperial was my first proper rum so I just had to get this.
A few people have commented on the bottle/packaging being cool but I think it is poor. The plastic bit in the middle fell off when I first opened it and the (artificial) cork is incredibly difficult to open (just took me literally 5mins to ease off!). I guess the tin is cool but I make a rule of never keeping them to optimise space on my shelf. I got this for about £80 from vinusvinis if I'd paid the £200 some UK websites are advertising it for I wouldn't be happy!
So it's lost a mark for packaging.
Vegetal nose and a bit of sugar but not lots.
Beautiful dark brown colour.
Some sugar but then lots of odd chemicals. Green grass and petrol?
The grass taste lingers for some time. And then an almost pleasant burn.
Just tasted back to back with the imperial and that is much better. Despite being a fraction of the price.
By no means a bad rum. Quite sweet with some oak and roasted nuts. It is really overpriced in Denmark, but you can get it elsewhere for less than 100 Euros, and then the deal is fair. But you can still find more interesting rums around at that price.
Denne rom havde jeg forventet mig meget af, når man taget prisen på 2250 kr. i betragtning, så burde den efter min smag være meget bedre.
En ellers meget blød og rund rom som desværre forsvinder hurtigt i munden.
