Recommendable to most
I am disappointed of this one, I was expecting much more from this 15 YO, it has a really good aroma but in the mouth is just strong with any other particular taste, the aftertaste is long but there is just alcohol taste, maybe it is too strong for me
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 very strong alcohol is clearly present. Super short at the end. Easily forgettable rum.
Schönes sattes kupferfarbenes Bernstein im Glas.
In der Nase fruchtig frisch, grüne Früchte wie beim 12 jährigen und karamellisiertes, getoastetes Holz.
Im Gaumen elegant und ausgewogen und doch irgendwie wild und frech. Früchte, Karamell, Gewürze und dezente Holztöne bilden eine perfekte Harmonie.
Im Abgang gesellt sich zu diesem Quintett noch eine leckere Kakaonote dazu.
Ein Rum für Liebhaber des Kubanischen Stil.
Beautiful full coppery amber in glass.
Fruity fresh on the nose, green fruits like the 12 years old and caramelised, toasted wood.
Elegant and balanced on the palate, yet somehow wild and cheeky. Fruit, caramel, spices and subtle oak tones in perfect harmony.
In the finish, a delicious cocoa note is joined to this quintet.
A rum for Cuban style lovers.
Alkohol: 40 %
Aroma: Hodně kůže, skořice, trocha ostrosti, lesní med, kandované ovoce (hlavně asi pomeranče). (86 b)
Chuť: Kožená nasládlost, čokoláda, med, včelí plástve, pikantní kořenitost. V dochuti znát delší vliv dřeva, nasládlost ustupuje. (84 b)
Shrnutí: Pěkný rum.
This clearly is a solid rum, even a good rum.
The nose gives nuts, raisins, a hint of smoke, all very nice. Also quite sweet, no alcohol.
Taste reflects that: Quite sweet, quite smooth, nuts (I would say macadamia, if I had to be specific), very slight smoke or possibly very slight funk. But not complex at all. No layers of tastes, but rather all in one well stirred and evenly distributed helping.
Well-made, no problem with this rum at all. Maybe a bit boring. But would not refuse to try it again.
Tasted together with Malecon 25, this 15yo "youngster" is rough with quite some afterburn, smoked Davidoff Dominican Primeros while drinking, it didnt bring up much sweetness, I heard no sugar added in them which might be a goodd thing for whole bottle evening talk with friend compared to overly sweet rums... will give it a try once again some time
I like the 12 year old. This has everything the 12 had with better balance. Full bodied. Smooth. Coffee and vanilla notes. Almond and dried fruit. Not to sweet but sweet enough. Good stuff!
Like all Malecons this rum tastes bright but also a little bit sweet. But they don't add sugar, they use bourbon casks, because of that they should get this sweetness.
We have just 40% abv here, but the taste is not very thin. Yes, it's not as intensive as >50% but I'm ok with that.
In the nose is nothing special. It starts with vanilla, wood and sweetness. I get also some caramel, some white fruits like prune and banana. Not bad, but not very complex, also not intensive.
The taste is almost the same, light and a little bit sweet with a combination of peach and prune.
What I miss is more complexity and more intensive flavors. I would rate it 70 points.
This rum is simpler than malecon 21, the other one has richer smell and taste (more fruits, more balanced spice). 21 is better, but if you are on budget it's still good.
Smell: vanilla, white fruits like prune/banana, oak, some caramel
Taste start/middle: vanilla, caramel, oak, burned sugar, fruits (peach, prune)
Finish (short): spice, oak, some light sweetness, vanilla, some prune
Aftertaste: cherry, vanilla
Value (26€): 3/5
V kategórii do 30EUR často vyhľadávaný pre svoj charakter. Kombinácia ovocných a drevitych rumov zaručuje,že neurazí prívržencov z viacerých táborov. Pochutnal som si napriek tomu,že nie je úplne hladký a cítiť aj alkoholovu dochut.
