Recommendable to most
Well judging by the reviews I was nt sure if I was gonna buy s bottle or not. Eventhough I like sweet Rum and the bottle is probably one of the most beautiful on the market...
But I came across a bottle in a small low profile bar in Zürich... 24 Swiss Francs for 4cl I thought : " Sure ! Let's do it !!! ".
Well I m glad I did.
At first the smell was so horrible I thought somehow it went bad...A bit like the Mocambo I rated to be the worst Rum ever made.
Then I take a sip, and... woooooooooooooooooooooooooow!
Never had something breathtaking in my mouth (I m a straight male).
Don t want to spoil it for you guys so do yourself a favor. Get your hand on a bottle or order a glass of it if you can find it. The experience totally justifies the price you pay for it.
The taste is Non Plus Ultra a unique experience, with its very rich, long and fruity flavor with hints of cedar, Vanilla, Caramel, fine Sherry and Seville Orange, which continues almost indefinitely, and ends of with an elegant soft finish.
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.
Sød og til dels rund rom med frugtig duft. Sødmen og den til dels små parfumerede smag og duft bliver dog hurtigt for meget. Et godt glas som altid kan drikkes, men ikke pengene værd. Prisudviklingen er dog også gået fra 900 til 600kr.
This rum is provided in a nice and classy bottle which shows you that you are in the premium range of the brand. I have been told that one of the caracteristic of the brand was the presence of orange taste in their products and it is sadly clearly true. The Orange taste predominate others aromas like caramal, vanilla and even the sherry. Clearly a premium product but it does not match my taste.
