Pour un rhum du mexique il est surprenant. Il est corsé, boisé, épicé et gouteux. Son histoire est meilleur que le rhum. Pour un 12 ans on s attend a mieux. Il mérite néanmoins la note de passage. Je lui donne un 7 mais c est plus un 6.5.
...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.
Me gusta al paladar es suave, luego tiene bastante dulzor y un montón de matices, pero para lo que es me parece algo caro así 19€ no es barato, pero otros con precio similar me han gustado meno......pero de todo hay
OK I'm not a big fan of this rum but objectively, it's not a bad rum... The taste of alcohol is way too present for me but the honey and plum taste is quite good. Another point for the bottle which is really pretty (and the main reason why I bought it). But at 30€, it's a bit overpriced...
I spontaneosly purchased this rum for about 23EUR in my local store because i was curious and it looked nice and seemed to have an interesting story behind it. What can I say, should have picked the +10EUR diplomatico standing next to it. And sign up to this site... Now this is my first review here. Save your money for better stuff. You will not enjoy sipping this one. It has an okay nose but the taste is terrible. I have to diminish this one with coke... Would also give the rest away for free.
EDIT: Strange things happen. I gave this rum a second chance and it was much more of a peasure to drink. Far from a fabulous of course but drinkable. Second rating is a 5. Mathematical average between first rating of 3 and the second one is now a 4.
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.

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