Now this is some good stuff
A friend of mine introduced me to this. Very hard to come by where I live. I was very happy with the flavor. As another review states that has sort of a butterscotch taste to it. Very smooth, no bite or after taste to it, and sweet going down. Excellent for sipping by an open fire with friends. This rum is not for mixing it should only be drank on the rocks or neat.
A nice mahogany colour but not much on the nose. Vanilla and caramel with a bit of a Sherry burn. For $80 at the LBCO, I was disappointed and there is better rums at that price.
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.
Less apricot more wood in here.
I loved the balance of wood with apricot from the 12y. That's why I prefer the 12 years old.
But still, this is a good rum and more complex than the 12y, a logical continuation. But if you like the aroma of the old celar like I do, don't miss the 12y old.
Smell: wood, some barrel, a hint of vanilla, caramel, apricot, sherry (or something sweet), dry fruits
Taste: dry fruit, some vanilla, some caramel, some oak and apricot, some bitterness. Aftertaste of sherry.
Value (40€): 3.5/5
