Tasty, but not quite great
Had a rum tasting on a sunny afternoon, because why not. Dzama La Cuvee Blanche Rum bottle and label design looks nice and unique. Plenty of alcohol and citrus to the nose and palate. Strong burn at the end. Mix it up.
It comes off as a rather impersonal distillate brought down to a proof where sweet lemon and vanilla notes could be added... regardless, it certainly has additives and is not quite a smooth sipper. It does go well with a squeeze of lemon and soda water, however, and adds a bright dimension to cocktails with rums which truly carry their own weight. Otherwise, it feels like a flavored vodka masquerading as an exotic rum. It’s not the latter, and I wouldn’t go out of my way for this, but you might want to try this if you are a fan of flavored spirits under $25 usd.
Most white rums are kind of dull but Dzama seriously will rock your socks off! It's a clear white rum from Madagascar. It has a serious limy-citrus smell and flavour that immediately made me think of Sprite. It is an excellent mixer and it is pretty good for a white rum to sip! Be cautious when drinking with Sprite, it tastes too good!
Un rhum qui dépayse tant il est éloigné des habituels rhums agricoles ou traditionnels que l'on connaît. Son arôme citronné bien présent sauve certainement l'ensemble et lui offre ainsi la moyenne. C'est pour ma part un genre d'ovni sur la planète Rhum, on est limite plus proches d'un gin, c'est dire !
This is a great choice to sip on. The flavor is not like any other, totally unique. High citrus flavor so utterly smooth its crazy. Considering this is only aged for 3 months the smoothness is incredible. I love this rum, so utterly high in rum flavor with that citrus zing, a very full flavored rum with a twist. Very highly rated for a white rum and a great price, easily one of my new favorites.
Tried a few from Dzama recently and thinking back to this white of theres and instantly all i can remember is Wow, thats a lot of citrus! There's more to follow on the palate once you get over it though and it turns out to be quite complex afterwards for such a young rum. Its ok, and would be interesting to play around with them citrus notes in a cocktail but certainly not a sipper...
