Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
What a rare bottle it was to find! After several years I got my hands into the A.H. Riise Non Plus Ultra Rare. Packaging looks very nice with black and gold text in a very sturdy box. The bottle itself must be one of the nicest rum bottles ever made. It looks like a very high end carafe with diamond quilt pattern on the bottle. Label is very bland and non-descript. Color is more golden brown than deep dark brown. Very strong butterscotch and orange peel to both nose and palate. This is way too sweet for my liking, but still manages to score a solid 6.
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.
Virkelig lækker Rom med masser af smag og behageligt eftersmag, en Rom der passer til en speciel lejlighed
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!
Not my cup of coffee. For sweet candy lovers. Smells nice, nice dark color.
I cannot decide if I dislike it or hate it. The flavor is like whole candy dissolving in your mouth at once. Great bottle though, you can boast before your friends but don't pour them a glass, they will think you have more money than brains.
The bottle looks old and fansy. The rum is amazing. Heavy toffe and caramel. Rich taste and smooth to drink. Get one and try for yourself.
because of the price and bottle presentation I expected at least the perfect quality of quorhum30. first thing you notice is very strong smell after dried orange.Then you take first shot, and what you can feel, is very significant taste and afterburn of, yes, dried orange. smell and taste are very different from all the others rums in my cabinet. One reviewer here wrote that this is not even a rum and I didn't understand. now I understand,it's significant and specific smell & taste makes you think about this is not a rum.
on the other hand, it's really smooth and you can feel the age. it's pretty sweet (for sweet rums lovers this is a must-try, for others it's over-sweetened) and yes, the bottle looks like from Dallas TV series, looks perfect, even the cap is made from glass. 67/100
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.
One of the best rum served to me at all.. Thanks a lot
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.
Very fruity. Does not stay very long on the pallet
De sabor en boca anaranjado y cerezas se convirtió en una experiencia totalmente diferente
You can love it or hate it. Nothing in between. For me its love. Excellent sweet rum.
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.
Sweet with a lotof sherry body, it is not far away from Dos Maderas 10+5 years.
2th best rum after embassador. Smooooooooth. Man sooooo smooooth. Nothing harsh, no ethanol, just a smooth sweet rum without feeling like a candy or chemical. Amazing after taste that kept on lasting. Vanilla, fruty, citrus and orange. My favorit tastes all together well blended in one bittle. One if the most beautifull decanter bottles i have seen btw. It looks expensive, too bad it is, but worth it. Only small side note: the orange was just that little bit too strong to have every single taste 100% balanced. But i'm nitpicking. I want a bottle !! (I even payed twice with tokens @ the rumfest because i wanted more!! )
After tasted the XO Reserve, I was curious to taste this rum. The bottle is maybe one the most beautiful if you forgot the Angostura Legacy and the Havana Maximo. But my fear was that the predominant aroma of orange will always be present in it. And it was the case ! This one is more complex with oak, leather, citrus, tobacco. Long and fruity flavors in mouth with vanilla and caramel. If you study the history of this company, you can understand the aromatic orientation for this product. But if you closed your eyes, you can recognize a syrup for the throat. I recognize the quality of work behind this blend but I do not approve the aromatic choice. Diversity creates wealth and rum universe is vast.
Nepochybně je hladší, kořeněnější, s delším dokončením než jejich standardní. Na druhou stranu, stejně jako ony je hlavně výrazně sladký, což ty nuance poněkud přebíjí, takže v poměru cena/výkon udělají např. X.O. 175 years Anniversary nebo Family Reserve přece jen lepší službu.
This is a top class rum. Very smooth and long taste. Also a great aftertaste.
The bottle is gorgeous, the glass structure... the rum inside is golden brown. The feel is sweet, you taste vanilla and cherry, in the nose some citrus tone, orange and caramel. Afterburn and aftertaste is so fine.
I really recommend this one...
