Never judge a book by it's cover. That saying also goes the same for things that look beautiful. For sure this is one of the best LOOKING rums on the shelf at the store. The hollow stopper even has the old "flip and fill" thing that 1800 used to have. However, I was disappointed with what was inside. I was much more impressed by Cruzan Single Barrel and that bottle is SUPER LAME. This isn't a terrible rum, but at this level and from the presentation I
Good standard sipper. Well balanced, not overly sweet. A bit pricey for age but if you can find on sale is worth having in your cabinet.
Tried this along side other Don Q offerings. Found that their standard Añejo and the 2005 Single Barrel had a much better flavor. A bit on the pricey side for what you get.
That was the highlight for me , the classy bottle. I've tried this rum a couple of times now and wanted it to grow on me.. its not ! Lovely golden straw colour when poured , good medium legs in the glass.
Honey is the only aroma that comes to mind apart from astringent alcohol vapours. I left in the glass for the usual 20 mins but still very fiery . It says 6-12 years on the box but tastes very young to me.
Adding a teaspoon of water helped with the taming of the beast but its not for me im afraid. This will be an expensive mixer ....
I gave it 6 stars because it does mix okay. However, at this price it should not need to be mixed to be good. Compared to similarly priced rums it has a bitter and harsh flavor. It was not so harsh that it could not be sipped, like many cheaper rums, but it was not an enjoyable sip either.
This isn't a bad rum but it's far from great. The bottle may be it's most distinctive feature. Notice there isn't a single review focusing on taste and aroma? That's because this disappointing rum has no distinctive flavor. I can't identify a characteristic. It's reasonably smooth but yet has an after burn that you'll notice at first. This isn't bad. It's just not great. I can think of 10 rums I'd rather drink but at least 10 that are far worse.
Also für den Preis hätte ich wirklich was besseres erwartet.
Ich fand der roch ein bisschen nach Kleber. Pur hat er mir nicht wirklich geschmeckt. Mit Cola war der in Ordnung wobei er dafür echt zu teuer ist. Ich kann den nicht wirklich empfehlen.
this rum is fine. it's just a little too much sweetness, a little too much harshness, a little short on spice and character, a little short on barrel. its tasty, but not great. if it were a $35 bottle... yessir. for $~60? there are a lot better choices.
A sweet almost perfumed like aroma is followed by some oak, a little spice and a lovely waft of light vanilla.
"The initial sip gives a sweet yet slightly peppery entry. Running alongside these flavours is a subtly creamy vanilla note which runs right through the rum. The finish is long and peppery."
