Tasty, but not quite great
This is quite a revelation! But don't get any closer if you're not into vanilla: this one is really strong on vanilla, far more than an Angostura 1919. No problem for me, that's what I was looking for. It lacks the subtlety of the Angostura, but the price is quite different! A very good (but surprising) sipping rum.
Apparently this is not a flavored rum. From the information found on the Rum Gallery, the super charged vanilla flavours of this 3 years old rum would originate from the soil and ecosystem of Madagascar.
The smell of bourbon vanilla is just too clean and up front for that. It's more vanilla centric than most spiced rums on the market, that are already too generous (generally speaking) on vanilla.
Don't get me wrong it's not a fake industrial vanilla smell, but still it's pretty much as close as sipping vanilla extract as you can get. The official website gives us no information whatsoever on it's conception, which is not re-assuring.
Leaving this one on the shelves.
Je le cote a 9 pour palier au 4 personnes qui l'ont beaucoup trop sous-évalué avec un maigre 3!! Il mérite au moins un 8 selon moi. Il se situe dans mes 3 premiers, sous Les Bienheureux Pasador des Oro et Plantation Barbados 20e anniversaire. Tous mes copains l'apprécient beaucoup. Vanille et noix de coco sans aucune odeur de vernis et d'effluves d'alcool a friction! Lol
I don't know what to say on this one. Has a good nose but the mouth is very strange and extremely sweeter than my taste and i like some of the sweeter rums. Left with an off the wall finish of to much dark and light fruits that conflicted with one another.
vraj tak vyrazne chuti po vanilke preto, lebo trstinu pestuju na rovnakych poliach, ako predtym vanilku (a citrusove ovocie). je naozaj jemny, sladky, bananovo-vanilkovy, ine ovocie neviem identifikovat, ale este po niecom dalsom chuti- ak na to raz pridem, doplnim to sem. je velmi pitny, ale nie extra uzasny. ja som zan zaplatil cez 30, co sa mi vzhladom na chut a v porovnani s referencnym diplomaticom zda trochu vela.
