Recommendable to most
Tastes like one of those chocolate pralines that you feared of getting in your mouth when the box was almost empty. The flask though is probably one of the most beautiful I've seen. If you're a fan of those horrible pralines you will probably love this one.
It´s one of my favorite. (9,5 / 10)
it´s a little bit to sweet , with an icecube it´s a little bit less sweet.
Nose - Great :sweet, dark ,fruits ,sherry ,smoke
Taste - Great : very sweet ,very rich, long and fruity ,sherry ,caramel , vanilla ,smoke,tabacco.
very long aftertase .
If you like sweet Rum , you must try this one.
The flavor is like whole candy dissolving in your mouth at once. Great bottle you can show to your friends, but pour a glass only for your enemies.
Best Riise I have ever had, but I can't give it full score, because it isn't very good value for money. XO Reserve is very similar in taste but it is also 50% cheaper. If money is not a problem for you, than this is defitnitely must have. If you want to have something little but worse but for much less money, than XO should be your choice.
Beautiful bottle, but a glas - plastic combination to close the bottle. It looks like a cristal caraffe.
I smell caramel, tabaco, toffey, vanilla. Then caramel again, sweet, vanilla, wood, and long lasting coffee and toffey. Really long lasting.
But it sweet. You will love it or hate it. I love it!
I bought this bottle, in the very beginning of my rum adventures. I got sold on some great promotion and salesmanship, and the flashy decanter.
Boy did I regret that. This just is not rum. No information on whats in the bottle, but I can tell you, that if there is any rum in there, it has been diluted with all sorts of weird added flavors and obviously colouring.
It tastes like hystericly sweet candy, with odd non natural flavors.
I am not a fan of the Riise productions in general, so I wasnt too optimistic when i poured myself a glass of this. However I must admit this is the first Riise ever that I actually enjoy. The orange is kept at such a low level that its hardly noticeable, unlike all other Riises I've tasted.
Nose: Oak, Caramel, burned sugar, sherry
Taste: Caramel (ALOT of caramel and volume!), vanilia, dried fruits
A very round and gentle aftertaste, that small alcohol bit that felt in the beginning is completely gone now.
It is still a very sweet rum, and to many it will be too sweet. But for me this is the best Riise production I've tasted to this day, this is actually drinkable! :-)
Yes, I made a mistake buying this spirit drink. After my reseach I found out that A.H. Riise rums come from a distillery that produces a long list of flavored rums. Nothing more to say. But great marketing and story telling of A.H. Riise. And I guess most sweet tooth rum drinkers like the aromatized stuff. Two stars, only.
Riise competes with Don Papa and I say that even though I love sweet rum.
I just smell chewing gum like Hubba bubba. I cannot separate other aromas.
I can't explain where this aroma comes from. No raw material in rum production can release such an aroma.
When pouring it out, it is already really viscous like a sugar syrup.
It tastes a little bit better, sugar-sweet, sticky, I can still imagine vanilla, chewing gum and some spice after all.
Well, in this price segment that is too much, even for me.
I'm sorry, this is not a good rum, but a good liqueur.
