Now this is some good stuff
This is the perfect sipping rum, comparable to the Zacapa 23 but richer and a bit more fruity on the nose (the Zacapa can be compared to an old cognac!) and a round fruit nose (think orange and fig) on the way down. Astonishing and superb.
Dominican republic, 40%, 23 year old
This pleasant and delicious drink has malt inspired by the taste of caramel and sherry, perfectly balanced with piece of vanilla.
I previously tried the 12 and I am a big fan of it. So my expectations for the 23 were high. It disappointed greatly.
The good: Nice presentation. Beautiful mid-amber colour. Gorgeous bottle. Brown sugar and a hint of butterscotch on the nose. A little alcohol too, but that’s ok.
The bad: Medicinal taste. No really positive flavour notes can come out because of the overpowering medicinal flavour. Far too much burn for a 23-year-old rum. Even the aftertaste makes you want to drink something else to get rid of the taste.
The 12 is substantially better. I am a fan of Dominican rums, I don’t recommend this at all. Especially not at $100+ here in Canada.
