Tasty, but not quite great
One-dimensional and quite forgettable. Loaded with added sugar (between 9 and 12 spoons per bottle!) and who knows what else. Of course it's got vanilla overtones, because that's practically mandatory for these bogus "sweet and smooth" concoctions. As sugary as this is, some reviewers mention needing to mix it with cola. So, there you go...
I like Quorhum rums (though the added sugar is 30g+ per bottle, similar to Diplomatico ones). But the sweetness here is balanced with a chocolate/bitter tones. The color is dark brown probably due to the caramel added. It feels good in the mouth, throat and long after... still with the bitter lasting taste.
Personally I would rate the 23-year similar to this one (like 8.5) and the 30-year somewhere between 9-9.5... so choose depending on the price, they are all great.
I have been looking forward to trying Ron Quorhum and this didnt disapoint. Very smooth and full bodied , plenty of honey tones and not too much alcohol burn , based on sugar cane and not molasses so not much aroma.I could do this straight but also very good with ice and a premium cola. I would love to try some of their older rums but not available here in NZ.
A good value Dominican slolera rum. The nose offers light caramel, raisins, a bit of oak and almost has a subtle "freshness" to it, perhaps due to the fact that the rum is based on sugarcane juice and not molasse. The medium bodied palette treats you with balanced sugarcane sweetness, light oak and fades into a few spicy tingles. There's no dryness, like you might expect from the canejuice production. It's not complexity overload but overall it's nice from start to finish.
This one have similar character like other Quorhum rums - warm, smooth and dark. But in case of 12y version there is no body, no complexity and also some tones feels unnatural. Higher level of sugar is trying to cover all these weaknesses, but only makes it worse.
15y you can find for a very close price and is a bit better. If you can, buy 23y or 30y and you will be more happy :-)
