A sugar-free 25-year old, ultra premium rum that is sustainably produced (Carbon Neutral & Fair Trade certified). From a 5th generation family estate, it is naturally aged without artificial ingredients, distilled 100% with renewable energy and KOSHER certified. A full-bodied rum with a long and smooth finish that lingers in the palate. Best enjoyed neat or on a rock, and paired with 70% cocoa chocolate.
Now this is some good stuff
Nice rum, a bit expensive. But I understand really 25 y old.
Dark color rich smell of caramel and soft oakiness wich you find back in the taste and some vanilla. Very smooth especially if you let it breath for about 10 min.... I poured it true a Venturi aerator to enhance the smell and taste.
A very smooth rum that doesn't fully deliver on the performance I would expect for this money.
It lacks in depth and richness and delivers instead in a smooth and buttery kind of way. I was surprised that leaving it to breathe in my glass for 15 minutes didn't really open up anything new. It's all just a bit plain. It's not something I will remember and it will move to the back of the cabinet now. Maybe I'll try it next year again but I have too many nicer rums.
Slightly expensive but wonderful product. Everything exudes quality. It’s a beautifully finished bottle. Once it have had some time to breathe, and this is important in my opinion, the nose greets you with hazelnuts, butter, roasted brown sugar and a hint of leather and oak. It's very refined. On the palate I pick up delightful things like soft oak and leather, buttery nuttiness and candied apples, fading into dark, slightly bitter chocolate and some tingling oak spices on the finish.
This rum is good in a no nonsense kinda way, but as mentioned above it's key to let it breathe for a good while. At this kinda money, I would probably prefer something like Appelton 21, which has a somewhat similar profile, but to me slightly better and (8,5)
Great nose, not too sweet but sweet, Carmel notes, vanilla, spice, lingering finish. Most expensive bottle of Run I have but worth a taste if you get the chance!
I did like this rum, although to me it tasted more of a whiskey/bourbon rather than a rum. This rum also has a decently high price.
If $150 is not much for you, then give this one a go. But if you check my cabinet, I can name one better for $50. Having said that, this is one of the smoothest rums you will ever drink. Light burn, mellow molasses flavor.
