Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Rich, sweetish, oaky, leathery with a hint of overripe dry fruit. Very well balanced and complex. Superb.
Excellent for sipping. The sweetness does not overwhelm the complexity of the flavors.
Definitely the stuff I look for with sipping rums. Smell: very nice, oak. Taste: very subtle mix of vanilla and oak, the latter being well pronounced (in a good way). I have no idea how much a full bottle costs (just had a couple of free glasses of it), so I can't comment on that.
Aroma some like apricots & honey, really nice! Taste also is nice, but only nice, nothings more. For that kind of rum isn't enough. Hope exceeded real feelings, that was little disapointed for me.
Nice Rum, but a Little top much Alkohol for my Sense.
Quite good but no strong tastes or spectacular flavours, some hint of tea.
Light sipping rum. Not overly sweet. Light amber color.
20ml uit een advent kalender. Typische Spaanse stijl. Hoestsiroop. Meh.
Don Pancho is a legend in the rum business, so a rum with his name on it gives me very high expectations. It doesn´t hit a 10/10, but it is still a pretty damn good blend.
Nose: Sweet tea, honey and figs
Taste: So much going on. Hits of honey, dried fruits, spices and a hint of bourbon. Aftertaste is very smooth with a dominant vanilla feel mixed with dried spices
Overall: The aftertaste is a little to bland for me, but apart from that this is a really nice rum blend that you should try if you can get your hands on it.
I like the armor. A hint of vanilla and oak, it finishes like a bourbon, It would go great with a mild cigar
Aftertaste is good.
Rum calender no 7.
Nice lacing on the glass. Smell is mildly sweet and alcohol. The taste is not too sweet, but not too hot like whiskey. Very easy to sip on ice. A little bit of vanilla, a little bit of smoke. Very well balanced. I'll keep a bottle around for an occasional drink. Goes well with a mild cigar.
Sweet and smooth aromas of fruit, caramel, vanilla and a bit of oak. A very pleasant aroma.
In mouth you get some bite from the alcohol and sweet flavours of fruit and dark chocolate. You also get some oak and spice. This rum is sweet but not to sweet.
The finish is a bit harsh and quite long with sweetness and oak. A little bit too much oak and spice for my taste but still a very good rum.
Hat mit positiv überrascht!!!
Werde ihn weiter genießen!!!
This was a great rum, I'm not big in words when it comes to describing rums, but I'm trying to learn ;-)
Scent of leather, sugar cane honey, figs, Vietnamese cinnamon, vanilla, beeswax and saffron
Taste: Subtle and complex at the same time. With a certain initial sweetness on the entrance, it grows up and dries up to a beautiful dry complexity with dried dark fruit, spices, cinnamon, leather, vanilla, oak charcoal, and leather pale touches of sweetness and base of sugar cane complex and deeply sophisticated.
Aroma brings mollases and tea. Taste is at first shaded by alcohol biteness later there are hints of oak and dried fruit. Finish is bitter and longlasting with tones of bourbon. Overally not bad, but character seems to be quite unmatured for 18yo rum.
This is first rum out of 24 box, which is really excellent. Very very long and rounded finnish.
Not so intense on nose, however rich on aromas such as dry apricot, herbs, bit of smoke. Flavour is mainly fruity, withmedium sweetness, very intergrated alcohol. Lots of elegance.
Wow, stands out in a good way. Nose: honey, raisins and plums. Palate: honey, dark chocolate and exotic fruits in a perfect not to sweet harmony. Don Pancho knows his stuff.
Velice sladká vůně, první dojem z chuti také sladký, pak přijde rána v podobě tvrdého, nevyzrálého alkoholu v podstatě bez chuti...
Cannot agree with all those superb ratings: this rum is very sharp in nose and palate, long afterburn too. Strong smell of alcohol. Did I get the wrong bottle or is this rum just highly overrated?
Fornuftig rom. God duft, med mange nuancer. Smagen er forholdsvis moden og mild, men med en fin lang eftersmag.
Voici un ron, issu d'un blend, qui n'a, apparemment, subi aucun ajout. De plus, il est passé dans des fûts de chêne américain en provenance du Kentucky. C'est très prometteur :)
Au nez, je perçois des notes de caramel, de café, avec des notes plus boisées, plus sèches,
En bouche, c'est assez vif, boisé. Les notes de caramel sont aussi au rendez-vous,
Enfin, il présente une belle longueur, plus sèche, sur le chocolat amer,
Un ron qui me semble bien équilibré et pas trop sucré,
Note : 70/100
Merci à 1423 Wolrd Class Spirits et son calendrier de l'Avent :)
