Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I liked this rum very much. One of the best rums I've tried!
Very good traditional taste of rum and also very closed to the slightly smooked whisky.
Rhum très bien équilibré.
Peu amateur des rhums de l'île Maurice, ce rhum est une belle surprise.
En bouche, des notes de tabac et de noix sont présentes.
Les notes finales sont longues et tendent sur les épices.
Den är helt klart en bra rom och trotts att den bara är 5 år en konkurrent till de rom som är betydligt äldre.
Had it in my sheld for about 2 years. Opened it up to pare with some fresh made mauritian masala with faratas. It goes well. Didn't expext such a great taste for a 5 year solera. I think i can taste some coffee and salt, which i really like. It is a favorite now!
Nice one as being 5 y. solera rum.
Coffee smell, Candied fruit, inside feeling
Chocolate, Vanilla and Caramel.
I like this one.
It is not often you are surpriesed, this time I am. Round and body with nuts and plum. Good value!
Un pic prea dulce pentru gustul meu, arome de ciocolată, vanilie. Ușor afumat.
Gold of Mauritius. 5 Solera.
The bottle: Round at the bottom and square at the top. Neat.
Glass: . Dark tone in the glass that shifts in little dark red. Smells of hazelnut.
Mouth: Mild and balances well in the mouth but still lacking some flavor.
Aftertaste: A light taste of oak barrel will arrive when swallowing. After that the hazelnut taste arrivies. However, it is a fairly short finish.
Summary: It smells absolutely wonderful but it¨s taste is a not that on that standard. A very good rum given that it does not have such a long barrel time.
Příjemná vůně, sladká chuť, lehce nakouřená, velice zajímavé pití... Nechápu, jak dokážou něco takového udělat během pěti let - i když metodou solera...
In der Nase deutliches Aroma nach Banane. Geschmack nach Karamell. Süß, mild, angenehm. Etwas besser als der "Dark".
I initially mostly smelled ethanol and didn't expect a great taste from a 5-year old Rum. I was wrong! Intense and smooth taste for a 5-year old. Sweet (but not overly sweet (compared to a Ron Zacapa 23 or Plantation XO)) with a nice nutty hazelnut aroma. Definitely worth a buy.
Well balanced taste, aroma with experience. Connected with Rome.
This a very fine rum for sipping for a 5 year. Good well compete with older rums. At the smell, there a note of hazenut and banana. At the taste, i found that there was a predominant taste of banana which caught me by suprise with a hint of smoked vanilla and coconut. The only downside is the short ending which lacks that complexity. But i would still say one of the best rum i have tried at this stage. A must in a bar but still a bit expensive.
Lucky enough to try this at the tasting room in Mauritius, Leather / tobacco aroma and surprisingly smooth for a 5yr old. Brought a bottle home which has since been finished :(
Pretty well balanced with only one bad thing - aftertaste was really short.
Velmi dobrý rum. Sladký. Chuť čokolády, kakaa, kávy.
I love the bottle and the colour made me want to taste it. I liked it but it misses some lenth and complexity to make it my friday evening rum. I noted it as a desert rum because it was over sweet and a bit to plain. Not a bad rum at all for only 5y ! Some 10y+ taste worse just nothing shocking.
Doux et sucré (sans abus, mais plus que normalement), la banane est très présente en bouche, avec des notes "fondues" de noix et de tabac, le goût de tabac qui perdure assez longuement. Rhum de qualité, peut-être un peu moins dans mes goûts personnels.
Sofet and sweet (without abuse, but more than normal), the banana is very present in the mouth, with melted notes of nuts and tobacco, the aftertaste of tobacco lasting quite long. Quality rum, maybe a little less in my personal taste.
Sweet nutty, chocolate taste. Notes wood and vanilla. Good sipping rum.
The aroma is huge with ethanol and artificial banana flavorings. Not expecting much from flavor, but it surprised me positively! Sweet but very easy to drink. Way too easy... Honey.
Nice bottle... great colore... 5 years old but really nice friendly taste.
With a pleasent flavour of caramel and banana, and a warm sweet taste with hints of smoke, this rum is a good example of great taste after only 5 years.
