Den duftede dårligt, synes jeg. Smagen var udefinerbar. Sprit. Vin. Hmm... Duft igen. Anderledes nu. Smagen er også anderledes nu, men svær at definere. Jeg må smage mere før jeg kan afgøre om den er noget værd...
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.
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)
Complexity: 2.5 (Nose was 3)
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.

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