This rum is sweet smelling - good
1st impression a little dry not so sweet , finish is dry.
Taste little banana, little raisins, expected a little more. pretty bottle could use a little more aging.
This aged rum that has been matured for 7-12 years has a rich character. You really get that sweet spicy, aromatic flavors. I detect tropical fruits, coconuts and pineapple with hints of vanilla. Very impressed indeed
Bought two bottles for my collection and the bottle looks awesome. I could only find this bottle in the airport leaving Bangkok. I only wish it tasted as good as it looks. Not worth the money in my opinion. Nothing special in the taste....a little harsh taste but no real burn. Not impressed and I wished I would have been
Light color for a 7 + year old rum. Not overly complex. Nothing offensive. Pepper comes in early. The finish turns bitter and is the low point. Update: On the second try i no long got a bitter finish but syrupy hazelnut. I can't help but wonder if my palate changed or if letting the spirit breathe transformed it.
Aged for 7-12 years in charred oak barrels, this decadent rum from Thailand really hits the nail on the head with an exquisite journey in rum fulfillment. Enjoyable in every sense of the word this rum is truly meant to be sipped neat. Phraya use the term "deep matured" which refers to their rum being aged in warehouse over a cool lagoons which is suppose to slow down the aging process. Quite the opposite of many other rum companies that boast storing their rum to age under mainly hot temperatures.
Should you find yourself overstocked with real cane Coke or Pepsi (which I prefer), and an ample supply of limes, and friends who are tolerable only when you got your buzz on, here is he place ot enjoy this inferior spirit. There are many areas where Thailand is numero uno: Muay Thai, Food, Independence, loyalty, big darn cat fish, scenery, and of course, lovely, lovely women. I always a large frozen pilsner glass, start with 2 cut up and muddled limes, a squirt of coconut milk or better creme 3 shots of Pharya Gold,add clear, cracked ice chipped off a block of ice using an Aranyik knife. Fill the glass with cola, light up a Thai stick blunt, enjoy. Do not exceed two of these (drinks). No driving, best not to talk too much and do not be the stoned jack ass to volunteer to be a muay thai punching bag. Chill, enjoy the three hours or so of buzz.
This rum smelled really sweet and aromatic but upon drinking it was almost dry. Also it was pretty harsh but not really uncomfortably so. Still, I expected more.
"It has a pleasant nutty and buttery taste to it with wafts of confected sugary toffee and little else."
