Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
Wood, dry, vanilla taste, not a perfect rum, not a sipper, I think it is not good for the price, but for long drinks could be a perfect choice.
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
Nose - almost pure alcohol with a hint of dried fruit. Mouth - mostly alcoholic burn. Flat taste, dry, no body, harsh finish. Dissapointment.
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 😉👍
Enjoyed a mini bottle of Malecon 12y with my buddy while on vacation. Nice bottle and label design. Light golden color. Strong nuttiness mixed with pure alcohol to the nose and palate when neat sipped. Surprisingly strong burn at the end. Not so good as a neat sipper.
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.
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
Not a sipper but interesting as a mixer. Does not have a deep body but the flavor was interesting with ginger ale and citrus but covered up with cola. Will not keep but would taste again.
Geur is geweldig, je ruikt heerlijk gebrand hout van de rijping op bourbon vaten. Maar de smaak komt nooit in de buurt van de geur, blijft vlak en de smaak is snel verdwenen.
Alkohol: 40 %
Aroma: Jemná, decentní, sladce větrová vůně s třtinou, medem a trochou květin. (82 b)
Chuť: Kůže, propolis, jemnější kořenitost, čokoláda. V dochuti pak i můj oblíbený cedr. (86 b)
its focussed on 2 tastes. wood and vanilla. does the trick though. maybe slightly to expensive to replace your overly sweet spiced rums in cuba libres but fine if you're looking for a simple taste neat or on the rocks.
