Easily consumable in a bind
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'.
The taste and aroma are overwhelmingly dominated by yeast. The bottle is great, but that is not enough or proper reason for buying it.
...I was basically "forced" to try it with my colleagues at work...
Did not enjoy it, neither my colleagues.
I gave it a 2 for the bottle design and the mexican heritage.
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)
Var til Rom og Whisky messen, og smagte denne Rom. Jeg måtte opgive at drikke den færdig, den smagte simpelthen forfærdeligt.
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.
Fruity first nose which turn into a walnut smell after 10min. Warm in mouth, nice on the tip of the tongue. Bend towards a sweet port wine, not a very good one. Short tail, candied fruits. Nuts again. Not really good.

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