A bit too much alcohol, but a nice entry. Price wise is wrongly placed.

Quite harsh, no aftertaste, maybe good with some coke.

Pour un 12 ans on profite bien du côté caramélisé et du bois. A déguster entre amis

Rum se zajímavou chutí, zprvu zklamání, poté jsem mu přišel na chuť. Lehce kávové tóny, ne moc sladký.

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.

Typical spanish style rum. Not a ordinary rum. You can find common flavors of burned sugar and some fruits. Quite a dark taste.
The nose is not bad, quite complex with some more flavors.
The initial and middle taste are the same and too simple for me, there is almost no change. It was a little bit boring. The finish starts with some spice and bitternotes.
It reminds me a little bit of Remidy spiced rum, it's like a natural version of but with another finish.

Smell: caramell, burned sugar, dry fruits, apricot, some nuts (hazelnut), oak, spices (cloves), earth
Taste initial/middle: caramel, burned sugar, apricot
Finish: spice, burned sugar, cocoa/dark chocolate with wood, spices (cloves)

Sweetness: 3/5
Spice: 3/5
Fruits: 2/5
Mildness: 3/5
Complexity: 2.5 (Nose was 3)
Intensity: 3/5
Value (23€): 2/5

..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.
