Not the exquisite tastes and tones, but just a good sip without pretentions
Rum Malecon 15y has a pretty standard bottle and label design. Surprisingly light amber color for a 15y old rum indicating very little added ingredients. Nutty and sweet to the nose and palate but a very strong alcohol. Long and strong burn at the end. Not great by any measure, but not bad.
Light fruity taste, nice roma. Vanilla, coconut and cinamon tones. Well ballanced - not dry, not sweet, pleasure to sip. Low price for this quality.
Za ty penize asi dobry, ale ze bych to musel mit kazdy den to asi ne.
Velmi zaujimavy rum, v dobrom slova zmysle. Vona je sladka, taka ovocno-cukrovo trstinova, clovek hned vonia rum ;)
Chut je intenzivna, nakolko ma jemne cez 40% tak to nie je poznat ale clovek vie ze pije piratsky rum kt postavy na nohy...
Citit tam sladkost a dozvuk je prijemny a trva dlhsie ;)
Kto ma rad sladsi rum vhodny aj pre silnych chlapov, tak odporucam kupit!!!
Celkovo 8,5/10 boda
Well balanced but the burn is a bit way too much. Not a bad choice.
very smooth. bit sweet. very close to zacapa solera 23 I would say from the feeling point of view (taste is different). for my taste it has pretty much 'mild' character (basicaly no aftertaste) but very good anyway...
Nose: Interesting artificial vanilla hints, reminds of pastries. A bit too much "alcoholic" flavor, stings a bit in the nose. Maybe some almond, cacao spices and the gentle bitterness of oak.
Body: A bit sweet, but not too much. This is very good, I think a lot of rums suffer from this usually. Clearly wooden bitterness, roasted nuts present (hazelnut, almond). Turns into a dry feeling after a while with a dark chocolate finish. Nice rum, good value for the price (~35€).
First time I opened the bottle I was a little bit disappointed, too much cacao. The very next day I leaved the bottle for a minute open to let the rum breath and the magic happened.
It is made from sugar cane and you can definitely smell it. At the beginning very sweet caramel aroma and then strong vanilla note I really like it. After this you can smell a hint of spiciness and okayness. At the end you can catch a little bit of nut or smoky aroma, but very little. In generally it is very aromatic and complex aroma.
The taste is less complex at the beginning rather sweet, very quickly it change to cacao and to very dry and oaky finish that last long for its age, anyway it feels and taste very well. The alcohol taste is present after the sweetness and stays with the oak taste and then fades very fast.
I have needed to try it twice to enjoy it, but now I really like it very much and I recommend this rum for every rum beginner.
This guatemala rum from sugar cane has really sweet smell, smooth body and warm aftertaste. Taste sugar, chocolate and oak wood in perfect combination.
Výborný rum který je jemnější ale zároveň po polknutí je chvíli na jazyku ostřejší chuť. Zatím 8 z 10 a těším se na ochutnání staršího.
Braucht noch Zeit!!!
Nicht das er schlecht ist !!!
Aber noch ausbaufähig!!!
Beim Einschenken macht sich eine gewisse Schärfe bemerkbar, die sich nach dem Atmen jedoch auf ein akzeptables Maß reduziert. Der Rum besitzt einem würzigem Charakter in Richtung Holz und Rauch und wird von einer sehr angenehmen Süße begleitet. Im Abgang ist er dann doch etwas scharf, aber nicht übertieben.
A mild smell, too much alcohol at first, maybe brown sugar with a bit of chocolate? Some fruity notes in the taste with a hint of chocolate and honey. A tad drier than some of the other rums I tasted but smooth with a very warm finish. The aftertaste let's it down a bit for me.
Someone mentioned it is supposed to be similar to Zacapa but I personally do not think these would be too similar when it comes to aroma or taste but the truth is, both play in the same league. Personally, I think this one is even better at almost half the price.
Will not be my absolute favourite but definitely deserves some attention and not a bad choice at all for those who are looking for a bit drier, reasonably priced rum.
Hade höga förväntningar på denna. Men var väldigt smaklös, känner lite vanilj och frukt, men ingen eftersmak, försvinner direkt i munnen. Tråkigt.
Both the smell and the taste are pleasantly fruity. The dry ending is less fun
Like the sweetness in the nose and mouth, it's smooth. I like it, is thinking about trying the 20 YO as well.
On the nose extremely rich and sweet with raisins, vanilla and some prominent coconut among the flavors of the palate.
Lots of sweetheart shortly after intake, with cream caramel and honey.
Nice one! Smooth and sweet. I'd like to try this one again!
I enjoyed very nice aroma of Malteco, with orange, nuts, a bit smoky. On palate similar fruity with medium lenghts, but strong sweet finish.
Just as the well known Zacapa (also from Guatemala), the Malteco is not made from molasse, but from sugar cane sirup. This production method is a guatemalan specialty.
Nose: caramel, oak, vanilla. Slightly spicy. Great, well balanced body.
Palate: very smooth and well balanced, some hints of chili and smoke maybe. Unfortunately, the aftertaste is not lasting very long. But this is still one of the top rums I've ever tasted. Definitely worth buying!
Forholdsvis sød rom med duft af chokolade og karamel.
Ligeledes en god lang eftersmag.
Vanilj är det jag känner först. Lite kryddig i smaken. Lagom söt med lite fruktigt avslut.
