Don't get the low ratings.
I have over 125 rums, and this is one of the better.
Hits your mouth in several layers of flavor and has nice finish.
Perfect amount of sweet.

Great smooth taste. Nice for on the rocks or mixed with cola. The taste gets better with the age of the brand.

Cuban rums are special (in my experience) for their thick, smoky feeling, when you nose the rum. Also there is a lot of spicy tones, intense aromas, toffee maybe. The rum itself is amber-colored, it has a bitter taste in the mouth, I felt toffee inside and then it was not so smooth in the throat.

Still one of the "worth the price" Cuban rum for me - good for a party sipping/drinking or coctails.

Je to trošku silnější, hodně je cítit vanilka. Za tu cenu není vůbec špatný.

Příjemný rum za rozumnou cenu. Jemný, dobře se pije.

Moc pěkná vůně lehká chuť určitě bych ho skúsil znovu, vzadu trochu ostřejší ale záleží na náladě z akou sa pije, každopádne prekvapil

Have tasted better, not the most tasting but I quite like it, my taste of rum is not the most advanced yet ;-)

Schönes Bernstein mit Gold Reflexen im Glas.
In der Nase, dezente Düfte von karamellisierten grünen Früchten die auf frisch getoastetem Holz liegen.
Im Gaumen extrem weich und sanft und leider nicht mehr so komplex wie in der Nase aber dennoch lecker.
Die karamellisierten Früchte sind immer noch präsent und die Holznoten treten stärker hervor.
Im Abgang übernimmt das Holz das Zepter und fruchtiges Karamell trottet hinterher.
Ein traditioneller Rum, nicht süss und harmonisch abgestimmt. Für Geniesser und Whiskey Überläufer.

Beautiful amber with gold reflections in the glass.
In the nose, subtle scents of caramelized green fruits lying on freshly toasted wood.
The palate is extremely soft and gentle and unfortunately no longer as complex as in the nose but still delicious.
The caramelized fruits are still present and the woody notes are more prominent.
In the finish, the wood takes over the scepter and fruity caramel trots behind.
A traditional rum, not sweet and harmonious. For connoisseurs and whiskey defectors.

Has a quite nice taste and fruity aroma. Recommandable to most

Again a new discovery! I had a great time drinking this Malecon 12y.
Not too alcoholic, very sweet and not too complex. The after taste is also little bit too short. Very easy ( maybe a little bit too much ) to drink.

Beautiful nose and balanced taste. Nice smell of orange and dried herbs. Mineral in mouth, even slightly sour which shows that the fermentation was well done and not hidden by excessive sweetness. A really nice rough rum.

Sweet easy to drink rum with some pleasant unrecognizable spices in the taste

Posted over 1 year ago by Václav from Czech Republic with 74 ratings

Very nice bottle, but the content is bit underperforming the primal charm. The taste is a bit rougher, but it could be fine sipper if you're not very demanding. But using it in short drinks could be a better way to enjoy it. The dilution will help the taste to rise over that rougher side and mellow down that alcohol pinch in its taste, but it will also provide a more complex taste over the rums that are primarily used for drinks and mixers.

It's a good natural rum, maybe too simple for experienced rum drinkers, but it's tasty and affordable.
The burn is stronger than in the older malecons and it's more spicy because it's the youngest in the line. For 22€ it's a bargain.
You can sip it, you can mix it, you can't go wrong with this one.

Smell: vanilla, banana, caramel
Taste start/middle: vanilla, fruits
Finish: burned suggar, spice, oak

Sweetness: 1.5/5
Spice: 3.5/5
Fruit: 2/5
Mildness: 3/5

The aroma of oak is most present at the first smell . Secondly , there are notes of caramel and a little vanilla . The taste in the mouth is hard on the oak. The aftertaste is not very long but sweet. This rum needs plenty of oxygen before developing its aromas. Not perfect, should be good on the rocks or with cola. Need to test Selecion esplendida 1979,1982,1895 or the 25th year.

Gotta give this one a 7 , pick up this bottle at my local Co-op for $66 now maybe a bit high for this bottle but that’s drinking rum in Canada, I mix my drinks don’t think I’d recommend for a sipper but mixing my way 1 oz rum , 1oz water two ice and 3oz coke this is a very nice drinker .Rum has a familiarity to it but not sure where from
Mix it up and enjoy 😉👍

Was okay but not great. Taste lasts long pak taste

Malecon 12 ans affiche un nez marqué par l'intensité des notes d'agrumes, de cannelle et de crème.

La dégustation dévoile un profil éclatant et opulent. Les notes fruitées d'agrumes sont marquées par la présence de zeste d'orange qui se lie aux saveurs de l'abricot et se rehausse d'épices douces.

La finale est persistante et présente une bonne longueur dans un registre épicé- réglissé

you can buy mouch more better rums fort this price, i dont com back fot this

Posted over 2 years ago by Mihai from Romania with 206 ratings

Spirtos, arome vagi.. Totuși pentru un rom de 12 ani se prezintă binișor. Ca de obicei, cred că e mai potrivit în mix-uri decât on the rocks.. Intersant că nu e amestecat cu zahăr...

Posted about 1 year ago by Jab from Czech Republic with 40 ratings

I like this one and prefer it over Diplomatico etc. Still there are better rums around.

Lite vanilj i doft och l smak. Kryddig eftersmak, lite stickig.

Posted about 2 years ago by ripperussr from Czech Republic with 96 ratings

Compare to the 15yo is more alcoholic taste inside and has less mainly vanilla aroma.
