Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I treat this rum like a single cask whiskey and water it to about 47%. At that level it's still buttery,nutty and sweetly sippable. At some point I may play with mixing, but really, when I enjoy it in the glass this much, why?
IDK if I found it at stores clearing an obscure product that didn't sell well, but I got 2 bottles for every 1 I have of El Dorado 12 and Diplomatico Reserva. And I am enjoying it more! 8/10 for quality blended with 10/10 value equals my score of 9.
Kraftig duft, noget sprittet i smagen, men forsvinder hurtigt igen, efterfulgt af en dejlig eftersmag.
Duft. Karamel, chokolade, sprit
Smag. Karamel, sprit
Kraftig rom med en duft af chokolade og kokus og lidt sprittet i starten men som forsvinder igen.
Have not had many overproof rums. When i opened this i expected it to burn all the way to my stomach. Maybe further. And i had the mix ready just in case. But not so! Surprisingly smooth and pleasant. Would give it a 7.5 but it was a gift. So it gets an extra 0.5. Yaarrrrrr!
Classic spirit bottle with screw cap. Interesting label, almost 2. world war - pinup - style. Beautiful color of dark honey/amber.
First nose from the bottle - sweet rich dark chocolate, caramel, mint.
In the glass - Again beautiful color, but a little thin when looking at the legs.
Nose - Strong sent of dark chocolate, sweet molasses, caramel, vanilla, coconut.
Taste - Sweet, burned caramel, wood/oak, vanilla, butter, hazel nut finish.
Very nice rum. The 54% ALC/VOL is not to overpowering. Still a lot of notes in the rum, and a powerful nose and taste of dark chocolate. Very interesting - extremely long - finish. I was recommended to drink this rum mixed with cola, but it is just as good straight up.
When it’s gone, a re-buy is a must.
Ce rhum bien épicé arrive avec une finale de lait au chocolat. Ça fait différent et permet de faire changement son gout est unique en son genre.
This rum have all the makings of something horribly sweet, but the added kick from the 54abv saves this and puts in a good territory.
Nose: Burnt sugar, caramel and some burn from the alcohol
Taste: Milk and white chocolate, almost like Bailey´s, but with a nice punch from the alcohol
Overall: At 40abv it would have been sweet, almost sickening, but it is saved by the added percentages.
The bottle (with a screw cap) doesn't inspire greatness, and the (generally) low price doesn't suggest high quality. Don't let that fool you. This is a very tasty rum. Considering the ABV, this is an extremely smooth rum. Sweet, soft, pleasant nose, decent sipper, but it will kick you. I prefer it mixed, I find the flavor expands considerably when added to a cocktail. Or a classic Cuba Libre :)
This is a rum with a lot of kick. At first it goes off like a bomb in the mouth with a 54% alcohol. When the tongue have become accustomed it reveals a lot of spicy flavors with a long taste. It is very intense, but does a very good job on a cold evening. Certainly a re-buy.
I truly like like this one. My first overproof rum (90+) it sits on 108 proof and it is really a nice experience.
Nose: fresh mountain air, hazel nuts and chocolate.
Pallet: burned figs, dark chocolate and a really long sweet pleasent burn.
Because i want to have an overproof on the topshelf, this one is uprated from 7 to 8 untill i find an overproof that can knock it of the topshelf.
Cant find any sugar test for this one, but i'd say it has plenty added ;-)
Blev virkelig overrasket da jeg smagte denne rom. Eftersmagen er lang og minder om chokofanter
Dufter godt, smager sødt med power til sidst. Klart en rom jeg køber igen
A temperfull little lady with 54% Dont let it scare you though, nose nor taste.
Nose: Alcohol, notes of chocolate and some vanillale vanilie?
Mouth: Feel the alcohol, let it hit you and then observe it beeing taken over by burned sugar, dark chocolate and some tobacco-ish taste.
For the extremely low price-tag this is impressive, especially when you get used to the impressive 54% Dont let the somewhat dodgy bottle (cap) scare you, obviously the money here is spent on whats inside.
Belle découverte, goût de cassonade et chocolat. Malgré l'alcool de 54%, le goût d'alcool est surprenament pas persistant.
I was almost afraid to try it after trying Wray and Nephew Overproof. That’s still the worst rum I’ve ever had. This was exceptionally smooth for being over half alcohol. None of the cloying banana taste I’ve come to dread in Jamaican rums. It’s a little on the thin side but very easy to drink for so much octane. Highly recommended for someone that knows enough about rums to not be blown away by something a little different. Maybe get to know your own palate before trying it or mix with something and try a sip to see if you like it. You may be surprised as well. I’m glad I tried it
Sampled Panama Red rum and I expected a bit of a burn from this overproof rum (54% ABV) but found it rather smooth despite the higher ABV, however, too much spice (cinnamon) to make this a regular sipping rum for me.
Duft af marcipan fylder næsen, procenterne fylder dog også, men sukker og røg er til stede også. En billig flaske, som egentlig ikke gør nogen fortræd. Smagen er fin med prisen i betragtning, eftersmagen er lang og alkoholen kan mærkes, men på en behagelig måde.
Solo para mezclar y decorar tragos de mixologia así que por favor no tomar solo
Worthy overproof that has a good taste, not just for burning. Its my go to when recipe calls for a rum float.
God varme fra alkoholen, som dog ikke dominerer mere, end smagen får plads. Chokolade, karamel, krydderier, lidt appelsiner/frugt. Ganske lækker, og til prisen meget svær at slå!
Overrasket mig positivt.
Kunne godt smage den høje alkohol procent i starten, men aftog hurtig og en markant smag af mørk chokolade fyldte nu munden.
Ok rom meget duft og smag af vanilje - kan sagtens drikkes men meget sødlig
Duft af whisky i duft og smag. Ville være ok, hvis det ikke var rom, jeg hellere ville have. Den er ikke dårlig og 6,5 var måske en bedre karakter. Kan ikke genkende, at erstatningen skulle være Companero Panama, som er chokolade på flaske.
