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).
Not quite my type of rum, too much alcohol taste and too sweet. Fun fact, my drinking buddy, who is into whiskey, prefers this rum over the others in my cabinet so I'm saving it for him!
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
Nope, it doesn't work for me. I think Zuidam pulled it off with their white rum but this one couldn't impress me. I've had it for ages and it's still not empty, dozens of other rums have come and gone in the meantime. It is harsh, the burn is a little too great, even for me, and the flavours are all over the place making it hard to distinguish what you are tasting. The prominent alchohol taste complicates it further.
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!
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.
