This has been my favorate rum for years. This goes down so smooth and the subtle tastes are phenominal. The hint of caramel at the end is what puts this at the 10 for me. A single frozen rock cube and to sit in the rum for 3 minutes to cool it makes this a taste to not miss.
Firstly the bottle is gorgeous and is an immediate indication of what you’re in for. Everything from the oval shape, the weight, the number on the tag and the half effective cork set a tone no other rum I’ve had compares to.
The taste speaks quality body and leather. Leather like a good whiskey almost. I forget at one point it was not a rum. But I want a rum. My only knock I could find is that it is not rummy enough. Whatever it is though, it is truly a pleasure if you’re in the mood for it. Right now though I just want some fuc**** rum!
One of the best rums I have tried so far. Definitely a sipper, don't you dare mix it. Very elegant and smooth, you will definitely taste the vanilla.
The old intense wood with apricot taste from the 12 is missing. I particularly liked that.
That's why I prefer the 12 years old.
Smell: some barrel, a hint of vanilla, some caramel, sherry.
Taste: dry fruit, some vanilla, some caramel, some oak, bitterness. Aftertaste of sherry.
Like it a lot. One of the best so far I've tried. Closer to dry rum than Panamians, but it is still pleasanly sweet. Oak, fruits on nose. Not very long, but strong after taste
To be entirely honest, this one is similar to the 23. The main difference between the two is that the 23 is somewhat smoother, as age tends to do to any alcohol that lends itself to aging.
Otherwise, however, this one is almost as good. I mainly gave it a 7 simply because it isn't as smooth, and that smoothness is something I value. It has a very similar flavor profile to the 23, and, thus, similar drinkability. I absolutely recommend it.
