Now this is some good stuff
I tried this in NH with their Coffee and Spiced Rums. I was a Ron Zacapa and Diplomatico drinker before I tried this. This is better. Full bodied. Smooth. Amazing finish that is a bit like cola and leather. Absolutely amazing sipping rum. Rumson's Grand Reserve and a cigar. My new go to!!
Nice on the sniff. Leggy in the glass. Color of wet straw. First sip throws some heat. After that a little pepper morphs into a very nice sweetness that lingers for a long long time. Good stuff made of Trinidad rum blended in Salem, Ma. I don’t think it’s widely available because I had to wait for the guy to drop some off at the packy. Privateer and Rumson’s are made a half hour from my home. Lucky or what?
It is rum distilled in Trinidad and Tobago, which is bottled in the USA. It is a blend of rums up to 23 years old.
It comes in a bulbous bottle with artificial cork. Previously, the package was 0.75 l, after the facelift it is a classic 0.7 liters. The color of rum is like a honey.
Aroma: Rather less intense at first, but quite pleasant and sweet. You can smell vanilla, ripe banana, mango and cherries. At the end there is a hint of oak wood, but not very intense.
Taste: It is excellent, delicate and really sweet. In the mouth you can smell vanilla, banana, caramel and at the end again delicate woody tones. The taste reminds me a lot of Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva. The aftertaste is rather shorter. A pleasant sweetness remains on the palate.
Conclusion: It's quite a surprise for me. If I started with rums, I would give a higher rating, but now I feel that it could be a little less sweet. However, it is a very good rum, but unfortunately it is not exceptional.
Overall rating: 8.5 points from 10
I enjoyed the Rumson's Grand Reserve, but to me it isn't quite up to it's current score (8.3). I rate this rum about a 7.
Has a nice sweet smell and taste, which is actually decent, but not sophisticated or aged enough to earn a higher score. Vanilla and molasses, with a hint of leather. Pretty good, but not great.
Rum tasting on a Sunday morning started with Rumson's Grand Reserve. Very nice and unique bottle and label design. Syrupy light golden color. Sugar, vanilla extract, sugar, then some very offputting menthol, then some more sugar at the end. Very amateurish American Rum.
This is so smooth for sipping, and I like it neat. There is a bit of leather on the nose and the palette, that I hadn't experienced with a rum yet(only really aged port), it adds to the complexity. There are also notes of coffee and fruit, has the perfect amount of sweet finish.
Ve vůni je cítit ovocná vůně a sladkost, podobně jako u Diplomatica. Musí se nechat alespoň 15-20 min po nalití dýchat.
Chuť není tolik sladká, jak by se dalo z vůně očekávat. Je velice jemný, chuť komplexní, kulatá, alkohol není agresivně cítit.
Expoze nastává po polknutí. V ústech se rozvine vůně a chuť exotického ovoce ( mango, bílé broskve... ) a kůže.
