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
This was a total turn down. Not sweet at all, according to my taste. It's more like whisky, but not a good one. It's harsh and has a non-describable taste. Tried it neat, on the rocks and mixed with a coke. All was bad. With ginger ale it was slightly better though. At least good enough to finish the bottle :)
en Rom lagret i 3 år har man ikke så store forventninger til. Ubestemmelig i lukten, og minner meg om en whisky og en sterk ettersmak.
Geur en smaak meteen uit de fles wat wrang. Na opwarmen nog steeds niet echt prettig. Na wat drupjes water een stuk minder scherp en niet gek. Een fles kopen niet zo gauw, maar een cadeautje zou ik met smaak weg kunnen krijgen. Geen topper, maar ook zeker niet de minste.
Färgtonen är en aning mörk gul. Aromen finner jag lakrits och torkad frukt. Smaken är förvånansvärt mjuk. Kryddig med torkad frukt, helt okej för en tre åring från Nederländerna.
Already on nose unexpexted aroma, not common for a rum, same with taste. After very short finish, I decided, not to my taste. It is good that rum in a rum.
Rums produced in Europe seem to get a bad rep, but are getting more and more common as rum get more and more popular. This is one of the rums, that will have a hard time convincing people, that European rum is just as good as Carribean or South American rums.
Nose: Honeycomb, prunes and a floral bagground that gets more dominant with time in the glass
Taste: Fruity and rich with honey, licorice and notes of orange
Overall: To me this is a rum, that have a hard time deciding, what it wants to be. It tries hitting all the different notes, that are possible to hit with a good rum, but ends up hitting none of them.
