This rum is produced in Madagascar then aged in ex-Chivas Regal Casks for 1 year. Both American and Spanish oak is used in Chivas Regal casks. The rum is a little dark given just one year of aging. The flavors are woody, Citrus, brown sugar, and vanilla. The vanilla to me is a bit strong even though faint given its one year in oak. The rum is true to the spirit and has an intensely spicy entry before the other flavors kick in. The rum is mostly smooth but has some edges. Long finish, light sweetness and vanilla on fade. Decent for straight up I took mine in all neat, but probably too strong and rough for many to do this.
Hits you with vanilla but finishes with fruit and orange. A little hint of maple and molasses make this rum delicious. I was hesitant at first, thinking I couldnt stomach more than one but turns out it is a refreshing change and could finish a few.
Rhum malgache primé (RumXP Gold 2011) au gout très vanillé au nez comme en bouche. Très doux au palais il ne dégage malheureusement que peu d'arôme à part la vanille.
Une longueur quasi inexistante et un manque de personnalité pour qui est amateur de rhums de tradition française.
Idéal pour palet féminin sur un grand lit de glace...
This is a very nice light pour.
The nose is subtle with vanilla definitely at the fore front.
The mouth feel is good and the rum is very smooth, with only a hint of alcohol burn on the swallow.
The limited flavour palette would be my only real concern. If you like a smooth vanilla rum you might rate this a 9 or 10, if you demand a wide flavour spectrum you may rate it a 4 or 5.
Overall it is a pleasant sipper.
Had a rum tasting on a sunny afternoon, because why not. Dzama Cuvee Noire Rum bottle and label design looks pretty basic. Plenty of alcohol and dryness to the nose and palate. Strong burn at the end. Mix it up for your own sanity.
Trop léger, trop discret, dans l'ombre de son grand frère "Prestige" qu'il faut largement préféré. La vanille n'est même pas si présente. La Peugeot 407 coupée que tout le monde a déjà oubliée.
