Now this is some good stuff
I have read a lot about this rare rum and then bought it from ebay (it is possible but difficult and expensive). What a moment when we opened box with three 1L bottles :) I have not opened it yet but found a bar with Barrel Proof on menu, quite a luck.
So to the review: colour, smell and taste is absolute delight. Have not yet tasted better rum. Toffee, oak, cinnamon. 45% means strong afterburn but not unpleasant. Want more! ;)
Higher proof but smooth, with lovely but bit alcohol smell, and superb balanced taste. The sweetness is right on spot, smooth vanilla caramel taste with hints of oak and nuts taste is so mellow it is almost perfect sipper for me. Although I cherish the Seleccion very much, the Barrel Proof just won my heart.
Smooth and sweet classic rum combined with barrel wood flavor.
Barrel proof has its name from the fact that it is bottled directly from the barrel.
All of a sudden all my bad experiences of Havana Club rum are blown away. Unfortunately a bit too expensive...but anyway....
Not my absolute favourite rum but it is so very nice. Great for sipping and mixing, but mixing feels a wrong. Would drink this everyday, recommend for everyone.
