This is a blend of 5 year old rums and a good and affordable place to start exploring the rums of Compagnie des Indes. It has a well balanced body and a nice smell. The light color indicates no or very little coloring. Although only aged for 5 years it is absolutely drinkable straight up, but dont expect a rich and powerfull or very sweet rum. A decent and honest young rum as it only contains 15 grams of added sugar per liter. Recommendable

There is reason in being critical towards the dogma that "older is better". "Ooh, I have this 18 year old rum, it surely must be better than this 12 year old rum." Wrong. Aging does things - often good things - but it doesn't neccesarily make a better rum. I was pleasantly suprised by the line up of 5 year old rums by CDI. The 'Latino' is light and bright. It has some character but certainly isn't 'heavy'. It's not overly sweet, with a nice dry finish. And because it hasn't spend a quarter of a century in a barrel, it's lively: you can have another one and another and another without getting saturated with oak. Try doing that with old rum. This is a sophisticated party drink or an unfuzzy summer evening sipper, it might become a permanent addition to my cabinet.

Redelijke rum met veel smaken die helaas niet allemaal te herlijden zijn.

Soepele rum, scherp randje en veel zoete carameltonen.

I think this one is a little bit too young and too simple.
Yes it's a natural rum, but still sweet.
I would start from the CDI West Indies 8 years.

Rum tasting in Tirana Albania continued with Compagnie des Indes Latino Vosne Romanee. Nice and unique bottle and label design. Bright golden color. Sweet oaky flavors mixed with mild caramel and vanilla to your nose and palate when neat sipped. Sweet and short burn at the end.

A very nice young blend of rums from here , there and everywhere.. light straw in colour , bit of an astringent nose , plus fruit , honey and a bit of chocolate ! Sips well for a 5 yr old rum.. buttery notes , short finish. 7.5 rating really.

Combination of 5 years old rums of various countries in the Caribbean and Mid-America. This rum is totally dominated by sweet notes – starting with the nose and continued with the palate which has no burn at all. Palate reveals flavors of sweet sugar and vanilla. Only short finish.

I got the last bottle in town, which was not cheap for a 5 year old rum. But I am surprised by the taste, very comparable (not in detail obviously) to my more exclusive Plantation Guatemala XO bottle.
I'm happy that I bought this so that I can save the other for the more special occasions.

Le nez de cet assemblage est plutôt léger mais on sent déjà une certaine gourmandise se profiler, avec une petite oxydation et de la levure. C’est léger, oui, mais tout de même relativement puissant au niveau alcoolique. Il faudra un peu d’aération avant que le caramel et la coco que l’on devine ne s’expriment pleinement.
Voici donc, avec un peu de repos, des notes de caramel au beurre, de coco et un léger cacao. Le nez s’est développé et on a maintenant des fruits frais flambés (ananas surtout).

La sensation en bouche est à la fois ronde et sèche. Je m’explique : la texture en entrée de bouche semble relativement épaisse mais par la suite c’est plutôt droit et sec. Dans cette puissance s’exprime à nouveau l’ananas frais flambé et quelques notes florales. Cet ananas est bien caramélisé et il est accompagné d’un nougat aux amandes fondant.

En fin de bouche : énormément de caramel au beurre, qui va fondre assez rapidement alors que le rhum descend dans la gorge.

Nice rum for sipping. Good value for money. Nothing to add to that...

I'd like to compare this one to the young plantation rums, it's light, not too sweet and has a nice complex aroma with hints of banana and tropical fruits. Buy around 25€ and you'll not be disappointed.

Belle bouteille et le rhum est de couleur doré. Au nez et en bouche présence de fruit tropical comme l ananas brûlé. Pas trop sucré, il est très léger. Même si vieilli en fut de chêne, on le perçoit pas tant. Difficile a le trouver au Québec, il mérite son achat.

Un petit cadeau reçu de ma femme!
Je craignais un peu que sa jeunesse (5 ans de moyenne) rende cet assemblage de rhums (majoritairement du Guatemala) un peu plat mais il n'en est rien!
La première chose qui surprend, c'est la clarté de ce rhum dans le verre...
Le nez est frais, fruité avec quelques notes d'amande.
En bouche, on se retrouve avec un rhum doté d'un bel équilibre, ni trop sec ni trop sucré. Il ne manque pas d'épaisseur ni de saveurs: on retrouve bien l'amande décelée au nez. Il a un ptit côté "pâtissier".
Au final, un rhum plutôt agréable à boire, qui ne manque pas de caractère malgré son jeune âge: une belle surprise!

Smooth and easy drinking rum. Soft sweetness plus hints of oak. Some kind of adhesive lurks in the background. Ripe Pineapple and Raisins.

Un bon petit rhum à boire sans faire trop attention. Manque de complexité c'est évident mais justement c'est un rhum simple dans le bon sens du terme, il ne cherche pas à en faire trop et à ressembler à ce qu'il n'est pas. Pour les copains qui s'en foutent un peu de ce qu'ils boivent mais qu'on veut quand même leur donner un breuvage de qualité.

It was not my type of rum. But maybe for other it can be.....

Den er måske en smule spritet men den ligger faktisk på tungen, den går lige ind

This blended rum caught my attention right at the start for its very complex strong aroma, once you nose in the glass. The rum is smooth, pleasant in the mouth and round-bodied.

Compagnie des Indes étant totalement transparente sur ses rhums, ils vendent ce produit en stipulant qu'il s'agit d'un blend de style latino solera avec un peu de sucre ajouté. Choix intelligent selon moi car cela leur permet de toucher un autre public dont je ne fais pas partie. Le public qui pense à tord que un bon rhum est forcément doux (pour ne pas dire sucré) et légèrement boisé. Pas d'ajout de caramel ici ce qui lui donne une robe plus claire mais reflète la vraie couleur de son âge mais évite d'altérer son goût plus que nécessaire. Alors c'est un petit ron sympa et sans prétention mais plutôt pour aficionados débutant.

4. flaske i CDI samlingen, smager godt og bliver gemt godt.

Very sweet, a bit more tasty than the carribean one but still not very interesting imho.
