Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This rum should be best enjoyed neat or with a small ice.
Complex, with the right balance between dry and sweet.
This is a big favorite of mine to sip. You can taste the extra aging in the sherry casks. We love it and it is easily available on the east coast.
Esperaba más, es muy equilibrado, tiene fuerza pero se bebe fácil, tiene dulzor pero no empalaga, me gusta pero no es mi preferido.
Not as sweet as other rums with a little more burn. If you're coming straight from a bourbon drinker's perspective, this might be an easy transition. I quite enjoyed the flavors and think it's a great rum, but I personally prefer a little sweetness to my rums. So rather than getting this again, I'd probably just get some bourbon or whiskey.
Ok, not bad but a little bit far from what i was expected. Sure not to be mixed but you need ice. Nice color. Not to strong nose. The body was not too sweet and dry. The aftertaste was a mix of alcohol and spicy.
A lot of people are rating this high then me. So I need to try again to see what I am missing. This had oak, grass and earthy tones.
i realy enjoys this one well balance a little bit to dry but for all a great experience
Oncteux sans être sirupeux, ce rum de la Rep Dom se laisse decouvrir subtilement.
Very nice sipper, always have a bottle on hand!!!!!
A fantastic rum.
Try the Extra Viejo as well and the VX.A
All excellent, but this is my favorite so far.
The higher grades are not available in the USA, and quite expensive
Not that much sweetened. Nice earthly scent but the taste... Its similar to that anti-mosquito plug-in repelents - perfumy taste that hides a chemical disaster. Leave this one to teenagers and their experiments. For a similar price buy yourself Mount Gay XO. Or Doorlys etc. In short proper rums, that taste like rums. After tasting this next to MG XO, I was really close to throwing up.
Chocolate milk smell, soft taste, it's a bit nummy, dark tones, tobacco, bitter
I enjoy this good aroma rum. Body of this rum is a little thin. But smooth, not too sweet.
Never get tired.
An old batch of this series. Double-distilled and matured in American oak before a second maturation period in sherry casks.
N- Caramel and stewed fruits, herbal tea with layer of earthiness to keep it authentic. Soft breezy oak, and floral, again touch of feint from this multiple distilled spirits. White raisin, sour plum and dried fruit intertwined. (84/18)
P- Thin body, sweet kiwi, young banana and oak smokes, Easy on palate with touch of dusty oak, which is not a bad thing in this case. (83/18)
F- Medium, plums, clean oak with semi dry finish, touch of bitter sweet herbs. (85/19)
B/B- 84/18, having same issue to term with the low strength that restricted any profound flavours of the rum to come thru.
Weighted Rate- 73pt

celkově očekáváný výsledek u rumu z dominikany
Very well structured and balanced, wood and full bodied Dominican rum
Smells great, but dull after taste. Makes me wanna try something else.
This was best at Top of the Market in San Diego. A little rough - a lime smoothed it out some.
Smooth Rum, not to strong.. sweet good for a neat drink without ice
Interesting nose with a slight burn. The sip is not diverse and the burn continues beyond the initial taste yet I will stock it, not as a sipper but as a mixer. Coke, ginger ale, citrus all created a wonderful flavor well beyond the normal mixer.
Hint of spices, coffee and dried fruit. Matured in White oak casks and sherry oak casks
apparently this was aged in Sherry casks for duration of time. Accordingly, it has a slight orange liqueur flavor to it. Overall, a pretty solid rum. However, the finish is not nearly as smooth as some of the premium rums I have tried. Has a little alcohol bite to it and is a little too hot.
This was on the back shelf of our resort stay in Punta Cana. Deep, amber colour with mild aromas of honey, herb and alcohol. Decent body with little alcohol burn. Would have enjoyed the chance to savour from glass and time, but only had access to a plastic shot glass. I have a sealed bottle in the collection, so now I know it's at least worth the shelf space.
Hints of wood and vanilla. Not flavorful enough for my tastes.
Well it was Grand Reserve which surprised me. It is pleasant enough to drink but lacks complexity and long finish. Mild oak with some sweetness but that is about all.
