I appreciate Rum Ratings club trying to introduce unusual rums to the club, but this Mexican shipment is just unusual not rare and great. I was hoping this 10 year aged would be a 7 or 8 but not in my book. Enjoy maybe others have different profiles or tastes.
Molasses, vanilla and brown sugar on the nose. Up front, the flavor is mildly sweet with a viscous mouthfeel. No heat to speak of and a slightly dry finish.
I kind of like the Deadhead Aged rum, and I was very interested to try their 10 Year aged against the regular Deadhead.
They are close. I definitely noticed the extra aging of the 10 year, but I feel it lacks some of the flavors of the regular aged rum. For that reason, I slightly prefer the regular Deadhead aged to this.
Smells and tastes of allspice, caramel, and butterscotch. It lacks the cacao I tasted in the regular aged, which to me, added nicely to the flavor.
Beautiful amber color. The nose is sweeter with vanilla, molasses, and a hint of oak from the barrel. Great spice profile with notes of char and some subtle sweetness. The finish is dry with very little burn or alcohol finish.
However, this rum feels like something is missing or isn’t completely balanced. Still a solid choice and one I’d drink with a cigar.
The rum taste like an unaged distillate. It has the worst characteristics of a Spanish column still. Avoid this rum at all costs.
Very average rum with no layers of complexity or extended finish. There are much better rums for the price.
