Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Nice find. For aroma this is incredible. Coffee and cocoa. Caramel. A pleasure for the nose. Serve in a large round glass over ice for full effect. Flavours are just as good. Wouldn't have guessed coffee and chocolate in a um would be a good sipper.
Edit: had my second bottle of this with a few different ones between and it stays near the top of my list.
Vůně karamelu, není nepříjemně silná na rozdíl od 20 letého rumu. V chuti koření, není to sladký rum, ale je to celkem příjemné. Mnohem lepší zážitek než vyzrálejší varianta.
Pleasent rum with vanila, caramel. What this rum got for surprise is this nice felling of coffe as well. To be precise aftertaste of raugusta espresso. And no i didn't have coffe that day. Works well chilled or on its own.
Jedine, co me napadne je dub, silne aroma a citit v chuti. Prvni privoneni k nemu jako vada korku u vina, ale krasne se rozvonel, kazdopadne zajimavy.
It was a gift for me and honestly I did not expected anything special, never heard of it before. But I was surprised how good it was, nice smell, caramel and coffee taste and very powerful afterburn (to some friends too much :D). We enjoyed it. Want to try 20y and maybe buy another 12y
not quite there, after tasting the 20 year old version. It has some of the characteristics of it older brother, but more pale, sharper, less defined. I love to citric notes on it, and I think could be great if consumed cooled during summer.
(Revised) I revised the rating from a 7 to an 8. You can definitely get some coffee and nuts like some previous reviewers mentioned but honestly it seemed a little harsh for the price and age. However, with just a SMALL splash of water the edge is taken off but the taste remains. Also I found that once it got a chance to breathe the taste improved immensely. The coffee taste really is fantastic and different. Definitely do yourself a favor and pick a bottle up if you can find one.
Two shots ahead of me. One 12 and one 20 y.o. Both are fine. Both are well distilled rums. But which is better? Sipping from 12, then from 20. 20 appears to have more rounded taste. But 12 is more sharp. I like those, but here? Really can't decide, maybe 20 is better by tiny little bit?
First old-aged rum i tasted and need to say the chocolate and coffee notes are really awesome. In taste it little burning (maybe too much), but as i said im starting my rum adventure :)
Strong coffee taste which follows through on the initial taste.
Light golden colour.
Aftertaste is just like a Jamaican coffee, nice alcohol burn and lingering notes of smooth coffee (combined with some great demerara sugar notes).
This is a really great rum and in my opinion better than the 20yr old or the xo variants.
I liked this rum. It had nice coffee, toffee, and chocolate notes. Sippable on some ice and made a really nice rum ball. Too bad it got discontinued in my area. Only negative was that it was a bit strong mid swallow but it had a warm finish.
