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.

As this is first Agricole rum, I did not expect anything, but I must admin I am not mature enough to enjoy it...

Color: Light (as there is not added caramel)
Nose: Raw,Fresh,Pharmaceutical-like, alcohol
Body: I dont feel much else than strong alcohol taste, maybe a little bit of Oak wood.
Tail: Short, alcohol intensive
Bottle: Very nice one, definitely upper average and the best one on this rum...

Maybe it could be used for some innovative cocktails...but not straight up, not for me...

It a light color rum, smoky taste, smell like sake.

Si tratta di un rum che assomiglia più ad un whisky sia nel colore che nel sapore, leggermente aspro e secco, può ricordare anche altri brandy, a tratti come la Vecchia Romagna, oppure il sakè.

Non è il mio tipo preferito di rum, da assaggiare soprattutto se si è amanti di wishky o sakè, ma, al di là della sua inusualità, non direi che si tratti di un rum entusiasmante, particolare di sicuro, ma speciale forse no, con questo tuttavia non voglio dire che non si tratti qualcosa di buono, anzi! Probabilmente è sì un rum da 7, ma altrettanto probabilmente è un liquore da 9 pieno.

Helles Honiggelb im Glas.
In der Nase, Düfte von unreife Früchte die an harziges, rauchiges Holz geklebt sind, sehr interessant.
Im Gaumen, dezente Aromen einer Blumenwiese und Honig auf Reispapier, sehr speziell.
Im Abgang scharf mit Blumen und Heu.
Ein leckerer Rum der einen Versuch wert ist, für Entdecker und Eroberer.

Bright honey yellow in the glass.
On the nose, fragrances of unripe fruits glued to resinous, smoky wood, very interesting.
On the palate, subtle aromas of a flower meadow and honey on rice paper, very special.
In the finish sharp with flowers and hay.
A delicious rum that is worth a try, for explorers and conquerors.

Something diffrent. Kind of a sagé.
More Sweet likure

Pas que ce soit une mauvaise boisson en soit, c'est plutôt maitrisé mais ça ne ressemble en rien à ce qu'on connait ailleurs. Une odeur de jeune whisky et un gout qui rappellera le saké effectivement (sauf pour les puristes du saké ok). Étrange, pas à mon gout, c'est dommage parce que justement je fuis tout ce qui se ressemble.

Mixte original entre saké et rhum la frontière entre les 2 est assez ténue

Really strange smell and taste, if I wasn't told that it was rum I wouldn't have guessed

The Ryoma 7 year old has such a strong alcohol smell into it that it's very offputting. Then you taste it and it's a mish-mash of a lot of flavors without anything really coming through. And the burn, wow, it's like moonshine disguised as an aged rum. Stay away from this one!

First of all, I think all the ones who compare it to Sake never drunk Sake of their life.
Just because it's from Japan then it tastes like Sake, BS. I drunk enough of Sake in Japan to say I have never found one similar in taste.

Instead, and I guess it's where many get confused, the smell and first taste (and even the colour) are very much similar to a good grappa (Italian spirit).
After few seconds, then you will start to taste some sugar cane.

My only issue is its price, way too expensive (especially if you compare with prices of Grappas), but it's a very enjoyable rum.

It tastes a bit like young whisky. The smell is not to mycket liking.
