Very industrial first sip, harsh. But milds out a bit after. Very mix of flavors. From wood, vanilla, orange. Interesting.

I had the 15 year aged and the 8 years aged I still have more then half a bottle. That says enough.... unfortunately the 15 years aged is hard to get outside Suriname.

Lovely aroma and really tasty. It has a lovely mild burn. Surprisingly good this.

Rum from Suriname is new to me. Before this I knew the country as the one, where all the good Dutch football players came from, but this is about to change with this rum from Borgoe.

Nose: Wood, dates and cherrys
Taste: Dates, molasses and some soft spices that lingers in the long aftertaste
Overall: This was really not bad. It could have done with a higher proof to bring the flavours more into the glass, but this is simply put a good rum.

Weird black tea taste, aged wood notes, a teeny bit of sherry barrel maybe. Burns a bit more than it should.

Havde ikke forventet mig det store af denne rom fra Surinam, men blev positivt overrasket. Duft af fad og lidt vanilje med et lille strejf af karamel, hvilket også gælder for smagen, når man lige er kommet sig over den første sprit, som man lægger ud med. God dybde i smagen, som har en lang finish. (19. December 2018)

Rhum de mélasse du Suriname. Vieillissement 8 ans en fût de chêne ayant contenu du bourbon. Double filtration. Titre 40°.
Présentation : étui en carton, bouchon en liège, la bouteille est très élégante, le rhum a une couleur ambre foncé.
Nez : dominante alcool puis fruits confits.
Dégustation : ce rhum est doux. Attaque assez sucrée, goût se rapprochant d'un bon appleton puis arômes boisés, toffee, girofle, le tout très agréable.
La finale est plaisante avec une très légère touche végétale.
Doux sans être sirupeux, tout en finesse, ce Borgoe 8 ans est une bonne surprise.
