Flawed with a glimmer of hope
Rhum Negrita is an agricole styled rum distilled from fresh sugar cane juice. As a result this rum tends to be drier and more aromatic. Bright amber colour due to storage in oak barrels. The rum is quite strong and spicy. Its intense bouquet is fruity overall and with delicate vanilla notes and hints of clove pepper and cocoa. Long-lasting finish compared to other rums. In my view a very good price value ratio compared to other agricole rhums. For that reason and as I generally prefer rhum agricole I rate it with a 7. In case you prefer sweet molasse based rums you should deduct 2 grades from that level.
One of the cheapest non-adultered rums on the market. Dry and (at least for the most part) agricole.
Bottled at an ABV of 37,5% it is not going to rock your boat but, just like the Negrita Dark, it is not without character either.
The nose is rather fruity, grassy and there is a bit of vanilla and oak in there as well. Not unpleasant but also not great. On the palate this Añejo becomes rather spicy and peppery but just like the Dark version it is a tad harsh so I guess the rum is for the most part really young. Sippable but not a great sip; it is flavourfull but not all the flavours in there are that well balanced or integrated.
The kind of rum you buy on vacation when you can't get the stuff you really want; this is cheap and decent enough but not really interesting.
Ya no lo compro y creo que solo lo he tomado mezclado, los refrescos lo aguantan todo.....vaya guateques y mezclando ya pues pelotazo total
Tampoco es para recomendar, en cuanto sabor sabe a ron pero es muy fuerte
Had a bottle of Rhum Negrita Añejo Reserve while vacationing in Malta. Cheap bottle and label design. Cheap at EUR 15 a bottle. Dark brown color. Rhum Agricole hits you right on the nose and palate. Super dry rum. This is a mixer rum, not recommended to be neat sipped.
Slightly vegetal grassy like Agricole notes but also has quite a strong pot still like element to it.
"It has notes of marmalade. Despite the relative rough nature of the rhum, it has a fairly nice finish. It’s quite hot but not at all sharp it certainly exits a lot more smoothly than it enters."
