Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
A bittersweet rum in the dry range of rums.
Nose: walnut, raisins, oil
Pallet: raisins, plum, coffee and dark chocolate
Decevant pour un 12 ans. Belle rondeur mais sans aucune longueur.
Zvláštní, čekal jsem chuť a sladkost Bucanero. Dočkal jsem se chuti hrozinek.
a complete unnatural taste. winy. raisins. sweetness. thickness. thin in the end.
not my thing!
Genul acela de rom spirtos și ieftin. Mai bine aleg un scotch de alimentară că e aceeași treabă și nici nu dau atâția bani. Am dat nota 4 mai mult pentru ambalaj.
Really fucking bullshit taste! It's salty! And the aftertaste not exist.
Couleur foncée aspect liquoreux
Nez boisé médical unique pour un rhum
Bouche boisée arômes de vin sucré vinaigré un peu amère doux et moelleux
Final long médical touche de vanille et de sucre roux
Arômes complexes et goût unique
Habe ihn wegen der Flasche und der Story gekauft. Schmeckt nicht schlecht: süß, voll, würzig, eher schwer, etwas bittere Schokolade.
What a fun run...the more it sits, the more flavor it has.. different flavor for sure..not to strong..It has a cool history..I will keep a bottle around for when i want something..interesting.
Bonne attaque avec de bonnes notes épicés mais peu de persistance en bouche...ce qui gâche un peu le plaisir.
Bit of a harsh nose, too boozy, sharp, but some sugar cane and almond notes as well. Taste is little unballanced as well, bit sharp. Not a bad one, bud i won't recommend it neither.

I was offered this rum in a bar. It was hidden behind other rums and the name and description were interesting enough to give it a try. The King of Spain had good reasons to ban this! It's between somehow undrinkable and kind of exotic! Dangerous. It has quite a strong raising and portwine-ish taste. Give it a try, don't buy a bottle!
The smell is decent, even nice I must say.
Then the taste in your moth follows kind of what you just smelled, but not quite. The same things you smelled are there, but not as good, some different stuff is also there, but also not that great. Still, until this point it is not a bad taste you get, but then suddenly it goes numb and there is nothing, just nothing.
What was that? You take another sip and the same patron repeats itself; barely a aftertaste in your mouth (wich always is a hugh factor for my drinking experience).
Because of that it falls down to a less than medium rum.
O, and the bottle; I dislike it very much...
The bottle looks really nice, and it has a Story to tell. The rum itself Taste quite good, Notting fancy, sweet with a hint of Oak and Camilla and Perhaps a bit of tobacco.
Un rhum qui m'a intrigué de par sa couleur assez sombre, qui me semblait de ce fait assez sucré en bouche mais après un achat et de ce fait u'e dégustation il n'est pas sucré en goût, il en ressort, de mon point de vue gustatif des notes de chocolat, d'épices et de vanilles... Surprenant en bouche mais aussi par son histoire, ce rhum mexicain mérite le détour mais n'est pas pour moi un incontournable à posséder...
Nice one and has for me a slight hint of tequila flavour.
a nice smooth first taste as you sip, no fierceness on the palate or throat, and a gentle caramel taste, slightly fruity.
the bottle was a factor i admit, so design kudos for that, but for £28 plus there are nicer aged rums out there
Fin rom, til pengene. Har en god eftersmag uden at blive for sød.
Dette er en speciel rom. Længe siden jeg har smagt den, men husker den som god.
Tail:extreme short,very decent
I'm glad I only tasted this one and didn't bought the bottle. Not much positive to say here, a terrible rum in my book
What a surprise ... And a bad one
This is how you see Marketing can be efficient. Bought this one because of its intriguing label.
Powerful fruity and spicy nose. Dominated by fruit cake, candied and dried fruits (orange. Lemon) and walnut. Reminds me of a badly made port wine or Vin de Noix (red wine + walnut + sugar).
Sweet round attack with orange and walnut flavors. Medium high sweetness. Not balanced at all with strong warm alcohol mouth. Very sweet. Not worth it (30 usd)
From Mexico with a good colour but a strong taste of alcohol. After same time in the glass the notes of fruit and chocolate come out. Not my favourite but still a good straight drink.
