The Flying Dutchman Premium Dark rum is produced in The Netherlands by the Zuidam family. Fermentation takes up to two weeks (substantially longer than most rums) before being distilled in copper pot stills. The Premium Dark variety is aged for up to 3 years in small wooden barrels.
Easily consumable in a bind
Easy to drink rum, likeable by most (I presume). Not too complicated and currently my go-to rum to drink when I cannot decide what else to drink (although this might do it a little short).
By surprise I bought it and it is a nice rum.
The bottle looks very nice, the color a bit light. the smell is deep. when you drink it the first thing I noticed is the deep flavours and aftertaste is soft.
Its a very nice rum
This rum is aged for a minimum of 3 years in 1/3 Casks made from American Oak (virgin and reused), 1/3 Casks formerly used for Oloroso sherry and 1/3 Casks formerly used for PX sherry. And the sherry cask aging makes a big inflence.
In the nose is brown sugar and tropical fruits.
Taste is sweet and bit smoky with hints of dried fruits and liquorice and long sweet aftertaste where sherry cask aging is recognisable.
It reminds me Dos maderas
Alkohol: 40 %
Aroma: Kandovaný ananas, ostřejší koření, vlašské, lískové a para ořechy, lehká kouřovost, hřebíček. Stylově jde o rum s lehčí a tenčí vůní. (83 b)
Chuť: Příjemně nasládlý, kořenitý, s vanilkou, medem a sladkou ovocností. V dochuti kokos a ananas. (85 b)
Shrnutí: Ochutnal jsem v Pivnici U Čolka v Brně-Žabovřeskách, kde mají velmi pěknou rumovou nabídku, odhadem asi 150-170 druhů.
Gedistilleerd in Nederland!
Minstens 3 jaar gerijpt op oloroso en Px vaten. Karamel, vanille, kokos en sherry smaken. Zowel puur als met cola goed te doen.
Body:burning,solid rum taste
Maybe the rocks could soften the burning in body of this one. But for 3yo rum, the taste is surprising, and very nice!
