Tasty, but not quite great
My first bottle of the "old man spirits". Well balanced, great taste. Not really impressive in the nose, but really nice, soft and sweet in the mouth. Coconut is not to dominating. Lets get also some other fine spirits from the "old man".
Der Rum war frisch geöffnet und eingeschenkt enttäuschend. Wenn man ihn jedoch etwas Zeit im Glas gibt erlebt man sein wahres Wunder. Reinstes Kokos (mit einer leichten Vanille-Note) in der Nase und am Gaumen. Das Beste - der Geschmack bleibt eine gefühlte Ewigkeit erhalten - einzigartig! Ein wenig mehr Komplexität (Würze oder noch besser Frucht) und er wäre ganz oben bei meinen Favoriten!
The first batch of this rum was balanced and sweet. Almost no spiciness but wholehearted rum aroma. I'd give it 9/10.
The second batch however has a rather artificial and very pushy coconut taste.
You can´t judge a rum by it´s smell. That is especially the case with this one, which have a completely different taste from it´s smell.
Nose: Big hit of coconut with some hints of vanilla and apricot
Taste: Very mild taste with notes of apricot, raisins, green bananas and a small hint of coconut
Overall: From the smell I feared that I was about to experience a liqiud Bounty-bar, but that was far from the case. Pleasantly surprised and a drinkable rum for me.
This one is quite a lot influenced by coconut.
There is coconut in aroma with some vanilla.
The palate is also dominated by coconut, with hints oranges.
Its not bad, but the coconut can be little annoying with more volume of this rum. It coud be a good mixer.
