Now this is some good stuff
Smooth with a non-cloying sweetness. Reminiscent of maple syrup. My favorite go-to rum. I only have five bottles, and I don't know how I will make it last.
UPDATE: I now own 46 bottles, having cleared out the inventory of California, Arizona, and Minnesota. I'm also upgrading my rating from 9 to 10, which only stands to reason. If this is one's go-to favorite, then a 10 rating only makes sense. Otherwise, what does a "10" really mean?
Although this rum seems to have its own haters club, I found it to be perhaps the best or second best I have ever tasted. I am sure it has sugar as most people suggest (that should mean little or nothing unless you are not serious about the experience), but it certainly provides an experience. Great for sipping, with Perrier or on the rocks with a hint of lime or lemon. Believe me, it is a great experience in the mouth, a demonstration of what molasses are capable of. There is caramel, cinammon, dried fruits, and chocolate. Smoothness comes with the sweetness. I hope there is a No. 2.
I have found a rum that beats my old favorite, the 3-star Ron Barrilito. This is like a super smooth refined version of it, namely in the long tailed oaky aftertaste that keeps me coming back for more. It does have a sweetness, but is in no way as sickly or overdone (looking at you Zacapa).
Highly recommended, worth the extra few dollars for sure.
Très bon rhum, assez similaire au 1824. Très doux et délicieux, un vrai nectar. Même si j’ai une préférence pour le 1824 qui dure plus longtemps en bouche et qui est un peu plus sec, celui ci n’en ai pas moins excellent.
Very good rum, quite similar to the 1824. Very smooth and delicious, amazing. Although I prefer the 1824 because it last longer in the mouth and is slightly drier, this one is excellent as well.
Excellent rhum sur des notes pâtissiers de Chovolat ,de café très léger se mêlant au caramel.doux et subtil ce rhum est délicieux et complexe.un peu dans l esprit d un Zafra 21 ou d un 1824 ,mais plus sucré.A essayer.beau coffret rouge...prix 64e e. 2016 à grauonline.
Purchased a sample from Master of Malt for £8 after the trying the 17 18 and 19. It's spent 10 years in oak casks and another 6 in French ex cognac.
Nose is inviting with caramel and fruit and touch of complexity. Very nice flavour sweet and rich in the mouth wonderfully smooth. Just delightful to sip.
En riktig smakexplotion i början, söt inledning som övergår i lite spritigt mellanregister för att sluta med en låång romrussin/ kolasmak, liten ton av ek.
