Very rarely does a new rum break into my top ten percent rated. Since this rum stated being aged in amburana casks for six months and I am big fan of Avua Amburana Cachaca, this was a no brainer to purchase at $50 US.

In the snifter, the amburana wood is very obvious in the aroma. I would call this one as semi-dry, since it has legs in the snifter and Plantation is well known for adding sugar. However, it is not over done. This one also beats the pants off the other Guatemalen rum that is easily available, Ron Zacapa. The final aging was in cognac casks, but the initial aging in amburana casks dominates the cognac casks. Very well done!!!! Truly harmonious!

For anyone unfamiliar with the taste of amburana wood aging, I will make a vague attempt to describe the flavor. Imagine a very exotic tropical hardwood like this one is, with slight hints of cinnamon and balsa wood. The rest of the tasting notes is like nothing else most of us have ever tried, which is what makes this rum totally unique. A mere six months of initial aging in amburana wood still dominates the taste profile, but it took years of aging in former bourbon barrels and cognac casks to tone it down. In other words, don't knock this rum just because you have never tasted spirits aged in amburana wood casks. You will either love it or hate it!

Very complex with a great aroma. Best finish of any rum I have had. Try this one, you won't be disappointed.

vůně velmi příjemná, vanilka, kokos, třešně, chuť nasládlá, ovoce, muškátový oříšek, konec dává znát sílu 50%

Vild med Vin edition cask nr 11/25. Bottle 236/250. Dejligt glas. Ikke den store oplevelse ved duft, hvor en potentiel styrke kan føles. Behagelig smag, en styrke kan mærkes og tiltræder ganske roligt. Eftersmagen er lang. Noget banan, og en sødme kan smages. Kostede 449,- som nypris og i min optik alle pengene værd.

Neither with this one. Very round, very smooth - no edges. Vanilla, chocolate: A rum for beginners as well as aficionados.

Un rhum agréable pour sa douceur. Des arômes caramel et vanille avec une certaine longueur en bouche.

this is a complex blend of very old rums.
Spicy notes of vanilla and chocolate and some fruites, hints of sugar cane comming through with even Some coconut on the finish. WoW this was a ride!
