If you sample around like I do, you should give this one a try. It is a bit smokey like whisky but rum-like with rounded edges. Low sweetness, rather complex. Not your rum to introduce newcomers to the segment.

This one has a character of dark chocolate with pepper.
I would describe it as a dark taste. Not a ordinary rum. According to the ratings, I think the most people could have misunderstood it. I like the burned suggar with dry fruits. The additional aromas of chocolate and pepper are not bad in this combination.

Smell: caramell, burned sugar, dry fruits, some nuts, oak
Taste: caramel, cocoa/dark chocolate, vanilla, wet barrel
Finish: spice, bitterness in the sweetness (like chocolate), pepper

Sweetness: 3/5
Spice: 3/5
Fruits: 2/5
Mildness: 3/5

..because it definitely does not taste like any Rum I tried or have, and truly feels like some mix-up (mishap?). it is definitely in bottom 3 *ever*. (out of 100+), other ones being French Mangoustan's and Hungarian Portorico. (I don't even count Polish "Golden Rum", obviously).

Pas vraiment un rhum de dégustation, à boire avec du coke ou du 7up. Belle histoire, belle bouteille, peux-être que dans le temps c'était le meilleur rhum au monde mais pas aujourd'hui.

Pur war der irgendwie gar nix. Übelst der starke Eigengeschmack, war einfach nicht meins.
Mit Cola geht der schon klar. Bei dem Preis sollte man eh nicht zuviel erwarten. Ich fand ihn auf jeden Fall besser als das Kraken Gelump.

Очень приятный аромат: ягоды, карамель и бочка. Вкус - поначалу сладкий, фруктово-карамельный, затем - терпкий. Спиртяга присутствует, но не резкая - мягкая и согревающая. Послевкусие довольно долгое, приятное, с травянистыми оттенками. Ром немного более резкий, чем 15-летняя версия, но всё равно очень хорош и сбалансирован.

Aroma is very nice: berries, caramel and oak. Taste is sweet at first, fruits and burnt sugar, and then becomes harsher. Spirit is present, but not very rough, rather soft and warming. Aftertaste is pretty long, pleasant, with herby notes. This rum is a little harsher than 15-yo version, but still very good and well-balanced.

Zapach: Wyraźna czekolada, kakao, trochę starego wina, rodzynki, prażone orzechy, wyraźna beczka. Całość jest wyraźna, przyjemna lecz równocześnie niezbyt skomplikowana

Smak: Wyraźne nuty kakao, czekolady oraz suszone owoce, delikatna słodycz, wyraźna beczka oraz palony karmel. Całość pozostawia wyraźny alkoholowy posmak w przełyku. Po dodaniu lodu pojawiają się nuty tytoniowe które również w drinku z colą pozostają wyczuwalne

Hmm... Trudno jest mi ten rum ocenić - z jednej strony jest ładna, solidna oraz zakorkowana butelka, dobra historia, ciekawe pochodzenie (trudno o meksykański rum w europie) oraz spora doza czekoladowości i fajne nuty winne. Z drugiej rum nie jest skomplikowany, raczej pozostawia wrażenia alkoholowe a użyty do stworzenia drinków nie pozostawia fajnych wrażeń które uzasadniałyby jego cenę (około 120pln). Mnie ten rum jednak kupuje - pewnie dlatego iż nie jest on oczywisty oraz ma zupełnie innych charakter niż liderzy rynku.

Ocena: 72/100

Die 12 Jahre Solera täuschen gewaltig. Schmeckt als hätte er einfach noch Zeit gebraucht.

Ve vůni příjemný, v chutí je cítit lihovost v kombinací sladkosti, 15 příjemnější

I love bottle and is little bit sweet and full of taste

Posted 8 months ago by Andy Tee from Malaysia with 148 ratings

N- Quite heavy on caramel, herbs, vanilla, sandalwood and spiced milk tea. Roasted red apple with edgy creaminess and some salty tang. Acceptable aroma but appeared subdue and heavy and sluggish. (79/16)

P- Dried fruits, lemon custard, plummy and buttery. More tart fruits that stays with cloudy nuance. (82/17)

F- Short-medium, spices, much like a solera, gingery sweet. (80/17)

B/B- 81/17. Was a solera indeed after a 2nd look on the retro-styled label, common trick for rum labeling, large numeric font with tiny words....

Weighted Rate- 67pt

Bon goût rhum gras et d'une belle couleur a essayer.

Don't associate Mexico with rum but a good job with this one maybe more of a mixer there is a Ron anejo reserva 22 I like the sound of and maybe a better choice.

Un rhum qui manque de complexité et qui fait ressortir des arômes qui font tout sauf naturel.

It's a strange taste like add the raisins in wine.
But I think it is not as bad as can't drink it.

Rhum fort en bouche. Note prononcée de fruit sec et de caramel avec un soupçon de vanille.

Μου φαίνεται ότι πολύ αυστηροί είστε κάποιοι εδώ μέσα ..... Ο μέσος όρος (5,1) δεν αντικατοπτρίζει την πραγματική ποιότητα αυτού του ρουμιού. Ήμουνα ανάμεσα σε 7 με 8. παίρνει λοιπόν το 8 δικαιωματικά για να ανεβεί λίγο ο μέσος όρος του.
Πρώτα το αγόρασα ( με εντυπωσίασε το μπουκάλι και το γεγονός ότι δεν το είχα δει πουθενά άλλου, σε κάβα ή μπαρ) και μετά μπήκα στο site να δω βαθμολογία και κριτικές. Στην αρχή ψάρωσα και νόμιζα ότι έκανα μαλακία που το αγόρασα. Όταν το δοκίμασα όμως κατάλαβα ότι πρόκειται για ένα αρκετά καλό και ιδιαίτερο ρούμι , χωρίς όμως να έχει μακρυά επίγευση. Στα αρνητικά του και η σχετικά υψηλή τιμή φιάλης (30€).
ΑΝ είχε λίγο χαμηλότερη τιμή θα μπορούσε να είναι ένα πάρα πολύ καλό everyday rum

I'll be never a fan of this rum, strong alcoholic taste.

Sin duda el mejor ron hecho en México lo recomiendo ampliamente, ron dulce oscuro.

When I get a new Rum , I get my rum drinking buddy's together and we set down with the new rum and a standard to judge from. This rum has a bite and is bitter. It has overtones of eather and tast like some bad moonshine I have tasted. Everyone in the group dumped it out. Don't waste your money on this one.

Ron? Terrible sabor y aroma. Fue una gran decepción. La linda botella prometía mucho mas...

It is just to much.. strange Taste on the sweet side, but can't put my finger on it...
Lukily i had a small tasting example and not a whole bottle...

With the word "Habanero" on the bottle you get certain expectations. There is a spicy taste to this rum, but nothing like the word suggests.

Nose: Prunes and brown sugar
Taste: It is very sweet with a hint of prunes and suddenly there is a odd spicy taste, that I can´t really describe.
Overall: This was just disappointing. Had high hopes for this one, but it really lacks a clear flavour profile.
