Recommendable to most
It's not quite Diplomatico but it's not far off - maybe not quite as smooth, not quite as sweet - but defintely has a character to it with a slight alcohol burn and a long lingering aftertaste of nicely roasted coffee. I have to say, a second bottle of this might see the rating go up a notch but for now it's good at 8/10.
I'm clearly in the minority on this one but I was left feeling a little short changed by this. The name, the wax seal on the bottle, the reviews - I had high expectations but found it a bit harsh, a bit over spiced, too woody and not sweet enough for my palette. Perhaps I'm just a philistine!
I am not typically a fan of rums from South America(SA). Not because they are bad, they just tend to be sweeter and thicker on the palette than I prefer.
This strikes a nice balance between sweeter SA blends and oaker Cuban rums. I can't imagine anyone not enjoying it straight up.
Rhum aux notes de cacao et de vanille selon moi (je n'ai pas senti de café contrairement à beaucoup). Très "épais", liquoreux, suave et sucré qui me plaît beaucoup.
Nice Ron with huge body, tobacco and coffee is like base of tastes. But many people will like it for its own stronger taste of those ingredients. Darker colour. Nice.
What a great surprise! Vanilla, woody, lightly sweet. Great aroma and smooth flavor. Hardly any burn on the way down. This is a great rum to share with friends or enjoy by yourself.
It was too dry for me. The color was rich. The nose was balanced. The body was straight smookey and the aftertaste it was something like pure alcohol for me. I feel more pleasant with sweet rums but i had to taste it. There are 2 reasons i will try it again. The first is that i didnt add any ice or water and i would like to know if there is something hiding. The second is that i tried after plantation x.o. and millonario and im sure i didnt have "clear view"
La Hechicera is a naturally ‘unpolished’ rum, which means it has not been rounded up with additives or sugar, its smoothness and flavour are the result of the wood it is aged in. I'm starting to lean towards slightly drier rums so this one's a winner to me.
