Svag doft, smakar lite smörkola. XO är mycket bättre, man känner att de har samma karaktär.

Sometimes I don't mind a real sugar bomb - they are easy to drink. But the sugar takes away the individuality and complexity that the rum might have. The nose is very sweet vanilla, typical of many a rum that has a lot of sugar added. Its the palate that is more interesting. There is a softness to it, with a hint of alcohol that counteracts the sweetness a little. Medium bodied with a hint of spice, it is an easy rum if a little unsophisticated. Far too short on the finish.

Fine when you are in the mood for a sweet rum, but not an everyday one. Overall a bit disappointing.

Tasted in Copenhagen. Sweet almost rubbing alcohol nose. First taste hits after s second with a spicy bang, and lingers literally forever - minutes. Just too much spice for me, difficult to taste much else. Shot of water opens it up with a much more molasses taste and oily finish.

Vona po marcipane, sladkom drievku, trochu vanilky. Chut dost surova, sladkasta, malo vyrazna, prilis preraza alkohol... v porovnani s inymi 12 rocnymi rumami napr. El Dorado 12y nieje tento rum nicim vynimocny a urcite ani nie lepsi...

Nose: sweet and pleasant toffee, well balanced

Palate: spicy, but poor body. Did expect more after the aromatic scent in the nose.

... hope the big brothers (15yo and XO) are better.

Day 17 of my Rum Advent calendar. This rum smells really good (vanilla and caramel) but is too sweet for my liking.

20ml uit een advent kalender. Typische Spaanse stijl rum. Karamel, beetje hout en veel suiker gok ik zo. Voor de mensen die van "smooth" houden.

En rom med ung smag. Lidt sprit og lidt sødme. Eftersmag er der ikke meget af.
