Easily consumable in a bind
Like many Mexican rums I've tried, I found this to be a little 'rough' tasting.
Smells and tastes of walnut, raisins, oak, pepper, and spice. Somewhat bitter. This is one of my least favorite from Mexico.
The taste and aroma are overwhelmingly dominated by yeast. The bottle is great, but that is not enough or proper reason for buying it.
Un peu intriguant par son histoire, sa bouteille et sa couleur, il se révèle plein d'alcool au nez, assez intéressant au palais mais sans aucune longueur. Une bouteille bien chère pour le contenu qu'elle propose...
The Rum used to be served to sailors in Mexico, but they all got so hammered that the captains made it illegal to serve! 'El prohibido' the forbidden RUM.
The taste is interesting, but nothing to my liking at all. Not very well balanced and simply too 'much'.
I had read some reviews online, suggesting that this was a great rum. However, it was a complete disappointment. This rum lacks aroma intensity. It has a faint note of oloroso sherry, and that's about it.
..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).
Cool bottle. Nice color. But there it stops.. The taste is weak to awfull.. And the finish is close to nothing. But i dont regret buying it.

"The rum is initially very sweet but the finish is slightly tart leaving an almost bitter lack feeling in the mouth."
