Trevlig rum men finns mer att önska........

(Update January 3, 2020: So... after reading through the hydrometer tests, I unfortunately discovered that Kaniche is a company that absolutely loads their "premium rums" with additives like sugars and coloring such. This is something that disappointments me greatly. As noted on my recent review of Zacapa's Edicion Negra, "premium" rums with additives that aren't labeled mean an automatic three points off. That means the highest I can give this now is a 7, but based on my previous rating, I'm giving it a 6.)

This one surprised me. Based on the low price, I expected this to be a mixer. Instead, it's a wonderful sipper. Definitely on the sweet side, but with my sweet tooth, that's perfect. (It's on the sweet side likely because of added sugars.)

It does fascinate me that I love rum so much, because I hate the tropical fruits it can take after... especially, in this case, coconut. Yet again, I find the claims of these fruits being upfront to be exaggerated. Even when I have detected coconut, or banana, or plantain, or something else along those lines, it's been subtle and in a way I actually quite enjoy.

This is definitely a smooth rum, as well... possibly the smoothest I've had so far. I definitely recommend this... straight or over ice. This is definitely a sipper, not a mixer. (Although, given the fact that a lot of that is because of added sugars, this would be just fine as a mixer.)

This is by far the worst rum I have ever tasted, and left my mouth very dry. Maybe I got a bad bottle judging from the other ratings on this page, but this tasted more like whiskey than rum to me. The advertisement in the store indicated that it had coconut flavor, which is what I was looking for, but I noticed that there was no mention of it on the bottle, so I was reluctant to buy it. However, one of the employees at Total Wines swore up and down that it was the best rum ever. I should have listened to my own instincts. Unfortunately this stuff will be going down the drain.

Denne rom må du ikke snyde dig selv for, den er fantastisk blød og rund med en fin smag af karamel.
Den egner sig også til første gangs rom drikkere.

This is exceptional for sipping with no burn. Very well distilled in Cognac casks for 18 months.

This rum will knock your socks off! It is so smooth, but has substantial body and finish. If you have someone who has judged rum as being harsh, this one will be a great entry point to the world of fine rums.

Definitely something positively different. Nice flavour that stays with you afterwards.
