Flawed with a glimmer of hope
My wife bought me this while in Saskatchewan a while ago. A good colour and a balanced but strong alcohol nose. Good enough to sip, but there is a burn mid palate. Caramel ,oak and bourbon with a medium finish. Seems a bit overpriced at $50 + Can.
Juan Santos 12 year old is aged in Kentucky Bourbon barrels and the Bourbon flavors have overtaken the delicate rum flavors a long time ago. If you like dry rums or Kentucky Bourbons, then you will really like this, but don't assume to get an amazing aged rum with this bottle. The most surprising fact is that the 12 year old Juan Santos doesn't have any burn at all, so it's very smooth, but clearly leans much more towards Bourbon than aged rum category. Only marginally better than the 9 year old Juan Santos.
Anejo 12 anos, could have come to more use, had this not been reduced down to 40% alcohol. This colombian Rum shows potential, but it doesnt really compete well with other rums in its price range.
We often try to find "the best" rum for our money, but sometimes it is nice to sit down and drink a simple glass of rum like we had when we started drinking this golden liquid.
Nose: Caramel and a hint of nuts
Taste: Burnt sugar with a small hint of cinnamon, but without being complex in any way
Overall: This is a simple and basic rum, but not in a bad way. Easy to drink.
de sabor fuerte para ser un 12 años pero con su 40% marca otra situacion en este ron colombiano poco conocido en boca a naranja y nueces en nariz calido y cuero quemado
