Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
The nose is teaming with coffee and chocolate. The palette opens with powerfull, sweet molasse and dark chocolate, followed by medium roasted coffee and rounded, soft spicy tingles. The aftertaste is substantial with a lingering full coffee note. It's a rum enjoyed in smaller quantities. The full package makes me think a bit of made tiramisu.
The nose is spicy and dark with a clear of mocha coffee flavor.
The dark coffee follows through in the taste, with an added burnt dark brown sugar of medium-high sweetness. The long finish brings a wealth of deep complex notes of caramel, cocoa and cola.
I was really surprised by the way that The Rum Company have achieved such a high level of complexity in such a refined and pleasant package. The experience you get with this rum clearly reflects the wide age-range of rums (5 to 33 years) used by their Master Blender.
Even though I do not smoke cigars, I can see why it is recommended as a companion to this rum. You really must enjoy it with something dark and powerful in taste, such as coffee or dark chokolate - otherwise the Aficionado will blow it out of the water.
A solid 9/10.
Dette er i min bog en fantastisk rom. Fik den af konen i 30 års fødselsdagsgave, og man kan ikke sige at jeg blev skuffet. Utrolig lækker duft i flasken, flot mørk farve i glasset, lækker rund og fyldig smag med en dejlig lang eftersmag med undertoner af kaffe, chokolade og karamel.
Dette er en af mine favoritter. Kommer helt sikkert i barskabet igen når 1. flaske af væk - top 3 i min bog og nok kun overgået af Ron Qourhum 30 års.
It is sweet, and it's a 10. As other users described it it has a strong feel of dark chocolate and coffee. It goes great with cigars, great. The aftertaste lasts forever, amazing. It just lasts, and lasts, and reveals all the beautiful notes of fruit, chocolate, coffee, and strong notes of vanilla. amazing. It is not for everyday drinking, but when it is time to have a glass, it will be a celebration.
Everyone likes their rum in different ways: neat, on the rocks, as mixers and so on... Even though it is not my cup of tea, it is clear to taste, that this was a rum created to be enjoyed with a good cigar
Nose: Sweet molasses and a touch of liquorice. A very deep experience on the nose
Taste: Dark chocolate, coffee, caramel and a touch of wood
Overall: This is a rum with a very deep taste with darker notes of chocolate and coffee combined with the sweet. A bit of smoke should go nice with this, which is why, I think, it would go great with a cigar
Dunkelrotes Mahagoni im Glas.
In der Nase sehr schwer und dunkel, feurig gebranntes Karamell vermischt sich mit dunkler Schokolade, stark gerösteter Kaffee und getoastetes Holz gesellen sich dazu. Früchte in Vanillesauce und Sahnebonbons runden das Ganze ab.
Im Gaumen, nein sorry, aber das ist Zuviel des Guten, beim ersten Schluck wie ein Herrenparfüm völlig überdreht und sehr künstlich für einen Rum. Kaugummi mit Kaffeearoma und Schokolade, völlig süss und kitschig.
Im Abgang, der übrigens sehr lange anhält, dominiert Kaffee und Kakao. -7
Ein Rum der mir persönlich nicht so schmeckt aber sicher Freunde im Bereich süsser Gewürzrum findet.
Dark red mahogany in the glass.
On the nose, very heavy and dark, fiery burnt caramel mixes with dark chocolate, strong roasted coffee and toasted wood join the herd. Fruits in vanilla sauce and creamy candies complete the whole thing.
On the palate, no sorry, but that's too much of a good thing, the first sip as a men's perfume completely over-turned and very artificial for a rum. Bubble gum with coffee flavor and chocolate, completely sweet and cheesy.
In the finish, which, by the way, lasts for a long time, dominates coffee and cocoa. -7
A rum that I personally do not like but sure friends in the area of sweet spiced rum finds.
What a rare find the Rum Company Aficionado really was. It took me several years to locate a bottle. Label looks nice and old school. Bottle is very sturdy and unique boxy shape. Color is super deep brown. Very pleasant mocha coffee and strong chocolate flavors to the nose. Palate gets hit with much stronger mocha coffee flavor which lingers a few minutes. Palate is much milder on chocolate. No burn at all. Strong 8 for sure, gets into my Top 40 list from well over 700 aged dark rums later.
Duft og smag af karamel, hvor smagen af kaffe også trænger sig på. Selvom jeg ikke er til kaffe, så gør det ikke noget. Jeg var tæt på et 8-tal, men jeg synes der mangler lidt dybde, som gør rommen for alvor interessant at investere i, og kaffe er altså ikke min favorit. Jeg synes ganske enkelt den er for dyr i forhold til andre, som er bedre. Derfor et meget stort 7-tal. 18. December i romkalenderen 2017
Compared to old Barbados from rum company this is a better rum. More sting and roundness to it but with mature flavours of coffee and dark chocolate. Nose: Lemon tea, coffee and chocolate. Palate: Dark chocolate, orange and coffee in a sweet but not to sweet mix. Very dark in colour looks amazing in your glass. 7.8/10
