Ryoma 7-Year rum

Ryoma 7-Year

Japan | Aged

Ryoma 7-Year rum is made from sugar cane grown in Japan's oldest cane plantation, then aged for 7 years in oak casks. The rum produced by Kikusui, a distillery located about 300 km SW of Osaka, Japan.

The Ryoma Rum's namesake is Sakamoto Ryōma, a prominent figure in the Tokugawa shogun's overthrow, marking the end of Japan's last feudal military government that transitioned in 1868.

The smoky smell lingers for quite a while in the glass, really a rum (Cachaça) you should try

The bottle is quite attractive with its minimalist design, resembling those ceramic bottles sake is poured from we all know from old black and white Japanese movies.

In the glass, the color is pale straw yellow, obviously a natural color obtained just by barrel aging, so points for that! Stern contrast with certain brands that are aged for a few years, yet resemble maple syrup due to heavy caramel dose.

The nose is delicate, vegetal, grassy, and earthy, wet grass, moss.

On the palate, this rum is very delicate and complex, resembling agricole rhums, but much less assertive, with a distinct brine note, but perfectly harmonious. There is an underlying hint of a sweet note, resembling a fleeting smile of a sympathetic stranger.

The finish is warm and medium-length.

This is a very clean-tasting honest rum, without any additives, sugars, fruit extracts and suspicious wine cask "finishes" many producers use to cater for the popular cravings for sweet taste. Beginners will tell you that it's "raw" and "young", because their taste buds are pampered with loads of sugar and other additives they are used to, but don't listen to that - in this rum, you are tasting the pure distilled cane spirit
aged in oak barrels, nothing more, but also nothing less.

Therefore, I am compelled to give this rum the perfect score. It won't please everyone, but neither will an original book or a daring painting.

This rum goes its own way, regardless of opinions of others, and that is something I must appreciate. We need more rums like this.

This was not particularly my style of rum. A mix of bitter & dryness. Also closer to the taste & flavour of Sake than Rum.
I'd say - if you like Sake, this one is worth testing !

N'est pas dans mes goûts. Très cher pour seulement un 7 ans. J'ai goûté des meilleurs rhum pour la moitié de son prix.

Pikantný ,ostrejší rum z Japonska. Ak tam ludia cítia lahodnost,vanilku,až karamel...asi pili niečo iné. Naozaj drsný rum za prestrelenu cenu

Is this a Rum? Yes, by definition it surely is. But it just stops there. The best thing I can compare it to is cachaça. But it is a second cousin of cachaça. Is it a good liquor? Sure it is. Is it a good rum? Not even close.

This is a very light, delicate rum that mainly tastes like sugarcane juice and something vegetal. The Rosebank of rums? Quite possibly. Pretty.
