Now this is some good stuff
A smooth, easy drinking rum at a great price that builds upon the 12 yr. For just a few dollars more there is another level of flavor and smoothness. Hard to pass up and gives the 23 a run for the money.
Bought this when the owner of a bar recommended it to me. Its actually a little bit smoother than the 23 year. Sweet but not too much and tons of flavor.
The bottle is beutyful and give high expectations. It is necessery to let it breathe and kep in mind this is Agricola rum and should be compared towards other Agricola rums. Normally Agricola is from the French Caribbean part but not this one.
Good rum, a bit more oaky and smoother than the 12 year. All in all though not worth the additional price. 12 year is a must try though.
A solid, if run-of-the-mill sipping rum. Typical flavors of caramel and vanilla. Balanced sweetness. Will update if I get another chance.
Update 11/17: After tasting over a hundred more rums since my original rating, I re-tried another in this range, and it's got curiously strong vanilla notes. I'm wary.
Sherry, Molasses, Vanilla, Caramel make this different and easy to enjoy, great aroma, loses its body if you mix it; this is best straight, fantastic to sip but loses its persona mixed. Definitely worth a try.
The nose is truly amazing, I am smelling like caramelised grilled bananas but I am seing a liquor, amazing.
Taste toffee, amazing smoothness with a little after burn, just to remind you you are drinking a 40% rum.
Overall a fantastic rum when you know its sugar content to be so low, amazing (did I say amazing enough?).
Sugar: 2 to 5 GPL
