Tasty, but not quite great
Alkohol: 45 %
Aroma: Vůně je v dobrém smyslu zvláštní, intenzivní, doslova se dere ze sklenky ven. Kokos s čokoládou cítím asi nejvíc, pak asi rozinky v rumu. Je i ostrá, pichlavá a vypadá alkoholem na víc, než na 45%. (88 b)
Chuť: Medová sladkost, kůže, kokos, rozinky a mléná čokoláda. Sladké dřevíčko. Má v sobě ale i jakousi drsnost (možná mi něčím připomíná St. Lucii od Plantation). (88 b)
Shrnutí: Ochutnal jsem v českolipském podniku Kavárna/bar Kocour, kde mají solidní nabídku rumů. První setkání s madagaskarskou Dzamou mile překvapilo, je to další rum s vlastní tváří, který není nijak uniformní. Myslím, že stojí za pozornost.
Not very strong or intense, but well balanced. Doesn't overexert, several glasses are possible :-). Some herbs, some cacao, some banana, some plum, a hint of hazelnut or nougat and gentle sweetness.
Dzama 6yo was my first contact with Madagascar rums and I had no idea what to expect. What I got is dry but very smooth rum with amazing taste.
Bottle: Its standard glass bottle with sackcloth on it, which makes bottle look pretty good. Really nice choice from creators of this rum.
Color: Mix of honey and caramel.
Smell: I can smell raisins and vanilla from the bottle. Its pretty intense smell, with almost no alcohol in it.
Taste: It starts with something sweet like raisins or chocolate and then turns pretty dry. This rum is not solera. Its pure 6 years of aging and there are no younger rums riuning the taste. Also the taste it very smooth and you wouldnt guess that this has 45% of alcohol. Its not as sweet as Diplomatico or Millonario, but not as dry as La Hechicera or some whiskey.
I really recomend trying this rum at least to know what taste comes from Madagascar. And I dont think you will regret tasting it.
Tried the Vieux Rhum Dzama 6 year and 3 year back-to-back and what a strong alcohol smell does the 6 year emit, phew! Well it's a 45% alcohol, so that lead number one, and I didn't know this when purchasing the bottles, but these rums hail from Madagascar and they try to imitate Rhum Agricole manufacturing process. The 6 year old Dzama has a super strong alcohol smell to the nose, but the taste test is much better. Raisin is a strong component, but there is hardly any sweetness to this rhum. Hardly any burn either, which is very surprising taking into consideration the strong initial alcohol smell. If you like Rhum Agricole in general terms, then add 3 points, otherwise if you like sweeter rums like me, it struggles to earn a 4 score.
