Tasty, but not quite great
This is a strong rum but very enjoyable. Quite smooth and sweet with slight banana taste. I take it with a little mixer, the wife really enjoys it in the evening in a cup of green lemon tea, medicinal purposes she says. This is now her favourite rum, also mine but in small measures.
De couleur paille, il est assez léger a l'oeil.
Au nez on a d'abord des fruits avec aussi la force de l'alcool.
La bouche est puissante mais complexe avec des notes de pruneau et de bois.
Avec un belle longueur en bouche qui est très englobante.
Une belle réussite.
Je m'attendais à un rhum brûlant, jeune et herbeux, avec peut-être des rajouts de caramel.
Et bien pas du tout.
Ce rhum est un assemblage de rhums de Trinidad entre 2 et 6 ans, vieilli sur l'île et uniquement en fûts de bourbon. Pas de rajout de caramel, très fruité, authentique, ultra aromatique sans être brulant. Il se boit pur.
Magnifique rhum pour son age.
I know this isn´t the best taste there is.. But we talk about a cheap shelfrum here.. Great for building drinks.. I like to drink mine straight up.. The trick is to take a small sip, (We talk drops here).. Hold it in your closed mouth until it boils.. You will feel what i am talking about.. Then you just open your mouth and all the tastes are there.. It´s more an inhaling rum then sippingrum.. The taste is like the original, Just more of it..
Traveling to Kenya or Tanzania oarks, carry for best treatment against any problems for stomach, and taste/ strenght ballance very good
STRONG and ALCOHOLIC. Nearly impossible to drink neat. My first sip neat stung my lips and tongue and left my mouth almost numb.
Tasting with a bit of water really opens up this rum. It has a silky and smooth mouthfeel, it's pretty rich but not overly sweet. Almost has some soft floral elemeents going on. Honestly though this is meant for mixing in cocktails and it does really ell there. If you want to sip on it i recommend a bit of lime juice and a few ice cubes. Overall, I'd buy this if you see it just to try it out but I don't see myself going back for another.
