This rum was an instant favorite for me. With notes of chocolate and toasted caramel the flavor was pleasant but not too sweet. There is almost no bite to it from the alcohol, making it an easy rum to drink and great for introducing friends to rum!
Ein sehr bekannter und zurecht allseits beliebter Rum, der sowohl pur als auch als Longdrink empfehlenswert ist.
This rum initially did not knock me off my feet, but when tasted with sweeter rums as the aperitif it really hits the mark. A well rounded mild rum with a great complexity.
Schöne dunkle ins rötlich braune gehende Farbe. Angenehmer süßlicher Karamel Geruch. Der Geschmack ist schnell süß, es folgt eine leichte Schärfe. Im Abgang mild. Den Rum kann ich nur empfehlen und er eignet sich auch gut für Einsteiger. Würde ich wieder kaufen.
This was a birthday gift and it really changed my perception of rum. A was an occasional rum and coke kind of guy but taught me how to sip.
It's smooth and rich and taste of caramel and vanilla, and hardly any noticeable alcohol.
Mein persönlicher Einstieg in die Rum Welt dank Botucal. Tolles Vanillearoma.
On the nose, it was welcoming, but upon first taste, as the cold liquid surrounded my pallet, I sensed a slightly medicinal flavor. Another sip. Then another. Each time getting better. It took me a glass, but it grew on me. It tastes authentic and I don’t have any qualification to say that, but it tastes like original recipe rum. To this day I find that the value and the flavor profile makes this a very strong performer.
I found this rum to be very flavorful but not overbearing or over the top.
But dear god this is just delicious. Sweet, right off the hop, perhaps too sweet for some. Unfortuneately, it races quickly to a short finish, dancing across some very tasty molasses and light caramel notes. Leaves you wanting a slower ride.
Not part of the rating: Absolutely superb bottling. The bottle fits PERFECTLY into its container. It is very satisfying.
One of my best rum - together withthe Flor de Cana 12
This one is for sitting by the fire and truly enjoying a glass of rum. Don’t even think about mixing it with anything
Delicate flavour lovely chocolate taste afterwards amazingly sweet on the rocks to mix with any mixer would be sacrilege. THis is a genuine favourite.
This is an excellent choose to have a nice talk during a cold night or with beach music around.
A great rum, good standard in the rum world. It's sweet and pleasant.
It's not a typical natural rum, but if you are new to rum, try this one. Maybe it opens the door to the rum world for you.
Smell: It starts with caramel, a lot of dried fruit (plum), wood, some vanilla, sweetness, ripe banana.
Taste: sweetness, caramel, burnt sugar, a little bitterness and a bit sprightly on the finish (all in good proportion).
That's what makes it so popular. A nice rum for sweet rum lovers. Price is also very good.
Rum you like to drink every day. Very nice flavor and sweet.
In the field under 40€ one of the best, rich and complex, sweet and tasty.
Quite sweet one. With strong notes of vanilla, chocolate and molasses.
I prefer more dry flavours but this one is definitely worth of trying. Sweet but sweetness doesn't kill it's complexity. There occur bittery flavous, leather, tobacco. Very nice and smooth sipper.
Although the label seemed familiar, I couldn't place it and bought a bottle. Finding the same bottle with a Diplomatico label in my cabinet I realised why I recognized it. Different label, same rum. Very taste and a must have for every cabinet.
Smooth, warm and sweet. Full body and long aftertaste. Perfect for beginners. Very good price.
Crack the top to smell sweet cinnamon and ginger tastes of walnut and brown sugar, awesome drop will savour this one.
This might be the rum I would recommend to someone when they're first starting out. It was pretty good but just slightly "cough-syrupy" for my tastes.
until I find another.... I am always on the lookout for something new
