I can see why this is so highly rated, it is smooth with a subtle sweetness. Easy to drink with a full backend. However, for me, I like a little more burn and bite in my sipping rums.
It's like classical music with wonderful instrumentation. Layers of notes some of them long delayed melting in to chords creating erotic harmonies. The music of Claudio Monteverdi comes to mind. Yes there are sweet fruit notes and oak and this and that but that is not enough to describe this gem. I wanted to say how I feel drinking it.
I was given this as a birthday present - very happy to say the least.
It is balanced and smooth with a slight burn on the initial sip, but it quickly dissipates.
Rich tones of caramel and chocolate.
There are times that you have to turn your brain off and just bow to truth... this is one of the most enjoyable liquids one could ever imbibe.
Is it super sweet? Sure, so is cotton candy
Is sugar added? Sure, it's also added to lemonade, too.
Is it affordable? Sure, so are funnel cakes.
And life is all the better because of them.
Nose - Black Currant, Nutmeg, Burnt Rubber
Palate - Cherry, Brown Sugar, Licorice, Toffee
Enjoy this one and remember, traveling carnivals exist for a reason.
I like sweet rums and this is definitely one. I love the subtle flavor in the background that isn’t overpowering, I probably would have rated it higher if it was more pronounced; but that’s a personal preference. It’s affordable and smooth, a great introduction to rum or something to keep on hand that will please many folks.
This is the smoothest rum of them all. To be that smooth it is necessarily on the sweet side, so if you don't like that you may not consider it 10/10. That being said, the smoothness isn't just from the sugar, other sweet ones are way harsher - it's just a damn good rum
A bargain. A good beginner's rum.
Nose not too heavy. But also not too sweet. Caramel and a touch of oak.
Nice and smooth when it comes to taste. Very drinkable and likeable. Very friendly on the palet.
"The nose is dominated by notes of caramel, toffee and crème. On the back end of the aromas, I can detect a hint of smoke and pineapple"
via Inu A Kena
"The palate evokes chocolate sauce and the sweet toffee, fudge and tropical fruit flavours from the nose"
Smells sweet. It is fruity, oranges, grapes and raisins with scents of chocolate and a sweet almost syrupy.
"The tasting notes on the site are very accurate vanilla, fudge/toffee sauce are noticeable as are notes of vanilla and a finish which is slightly bitter like cocoa which leaves a hit of oakiness on the taste buds. The finish is pretty short. ."
