First taste tonight so I'll have to give it some time to see how I really like it. Love the packaging, very smooth rum, not too sweet, almost a burnt sugar aftertaste. I will be going back for more soon.

Not bad. The nose is like a coffe liqueur as somebody else noted. The body sweet. I would prefered something little bitter. The aftertaste is coffe with caramel notes. Its time to taste the 20th for more balance

Nose: Let the rum breathe for a while, then discover veery aromatic oakwood and maple syrup (although they don‘t add lots of sugar)
Palate: very aromatic 👌 Begins a bit sharp, but not harsh, and a tiny bit oily. Finishes with some hints of tobacco, roasted coffee beans and oak. Very pleasant, lasts very long.

Positive: Comes in a black bottle: you don‘t have to lock it away from light.

Sugar: only 0-5 gpl
This rum made me learn, that also a ‚dry‘ rum with very little sugar added can taste pretty sweet.

sladký rum, vyvážené chute pre mňa v pomere cena/chuť lepšia varianta ako 20 ročný starší brat.

I gave "100 months coffe" 7 so I must give this one 6 as I would prefere coffe on one hand as liquer and 20yo as rum on the other hand. Its not that bad, but its not good as well. I would recomend you going for one of the other two common rums from this company.

Smell: wood, coffe, alcohol, a bit of fruit

Taste: Sharp, alcoholic, with notes of wood and coffe. Nothing extraordinery

As somebody who enjoys strong, black and sweet coffee, I cannot but like this rum. It may not rank among the top rums I know, but it does quite well both with ice as for sipping. Different, but still well within the Latin tradition of sweet rums. Definitely a keeper.

rhum légèrement doux mais sans trop, avec des notes de caramel et amandes, plutôt pas mal

Den är ok, smakar lite bränt socker, lite väl spritig

Like syrup, it is a worthy investment, I can hope you try it.

Poprvé nic moc, asi jsem byl špatně naladěn, druhý pokus velká spokojenost

Like it says in the box: smells lovely of maple syrup. Tastes warm and sweet (no sugar). Coffee aftertaste. Would buy again.
