Tasty, but not quite great
Overwelming sweetness in the nose, a bit too much actually, which runs right into the taste and finish. All in all a good sweeter rum especially for the price. Personally I like some more character in a rum, but that would be a bit too much to ask from an only 5 year old rum, I guess.
I like this rum, it is easy on the pallet and not to rough. Works both as sipping and as mixed. This is a rum you can have a little sip of everyday and not get to bored. If you are looking to get amazed and have you socks blown off, this is not it. For that you need to step it up a bit.
40% double aged no age statement rum
No information about stills, probably mostly column
Nose: Very fruity and sweet, loads of vanilla and caramel, fresh banana and so on
Taste: Light and very sweet, fruitiness is still very persistent but its mostly just fruit candy like, lots of vanilla and caramel, also lots of cinnamon, also some other spices. Very lightly oaky.
Finish: Sugary smooth, doesnt stay for long but no of flavors either.
Overall, not the purest expression of Barbadian rum for sure but it is good and inoffensive, not very interesting but as a mixer, great one in my opinion.
Esta bueno, tiene buen sabor pero el 5 years old me parece mejor, mejor buquet, la sensación que te deja en la boca, lo he comprado porque no lo había probado, pero buscaba el XO aunque solo he gastado 19'90€, no está mal he probado más caros peores.
Tried this one on my second attempt (after excellent Barcelo Gran Anejo) with a sipping rum that is more affordable. Big disappointment, not able to sip it because of a strong alcohol taste.
This was the bottle that started me down the rum trail, prior to this I only tasted cheap white rum that was only bareble with lots of Coke. Now this is not an exelent rum but it's a perfect rum for beginners, who like me (in my youth) thought that rum was like vodka with a wierd side taste. It goes well in drinks and you can use it as an avec, not a great avec but great value for the money.
