Tasty, but not quite great
I bought this one with a totally different experience and flavor in mind, and was kind of shocked at first. The leather was a bit of a mystery until i read another review that mentioned it, and then it clicked for me. " Oh that's what that is!"
I drank this one too fast to really appreciate and analyze it, but it was good, so I'd buy it again.
This one was one of my 1st bottles of aged rum which i got while on vacation in Antigua. It was nice and a smooth with only a little burn. Still very enjoyable.
Zástupce největší sekce rumů, cca 5 roku staré, lehce sladké, cca 500 Kč atd. Podobně jako chairman reserve.... Tyhle rumy určitě nikoho neurazí ale zároveň taky asi nenadchnou. Mám problém si je zapamatovat a odlišit. Samotné úplně v pohodě pitelné a do drinků luxus.
To me, this rum ticks most of the boxes. It has an age statement, it is not overly sweet, it says where it is from, price is about right.
And the nose is quite nice. Woody, fruity. And a hint of mouldy cardboard. Which I do not care for at all.
Seriously, I thought the cork had gone bad. But that is not the case, I believe.
Taste is medium sweet (I assume some sugar is added, but not in excess), vanilla, more fruity then I would have thought, pear, cherry conserve, sugar cane. And something like mouldy cardboard or a musty cellar. Very strange and not really that appealing to me. It might grow on me, but so far (about two years) it has not. The bottle has improved with some oxidation overall, but I still get more mould then I would like.
On the other hand, it is a relatively light rum, which still has quite a complex profile. Since it is the only Antiguan rum I tried so far, I am really in no position to judge. But in comparison to other rums that I know, this is quite unique. Which is good.
No idea where people get the whisky analogies from. This rum tastes nothing like any normal whisky. And I only add "normal" to rule possible freaky experimental rum-cask whiskies and the like.
Since everything comes together very nicely in this rum, I assume that it is meant to be that way. And that is fine ultimately. Might even grow on me further. For now, I find it OK-ish, not very good.
Maybe a Speyside whisky drinkers rum. Good but will not blow you away.
Thin at the start the flavours spicy light molasses, vanilla slowly develop and intensify - the oak barrels talking I guess
Also mixes well with cola 50/50
At around 20EUR Germany a good buy for sure
Velice průměrný mladý rum. Ve vůni je nasládlý, lehce dřevo, možná i ovoce. V chuti je to podobné, nevýrazné s hodně krátkým závěrem. Podobně mladé rumy od Appleton, Angostura nebo St. Lucia mě baví daleko víc. Láhev už si příště nekoupím.
it‘s a rather cheap rum, but therefor it‘s a no-brainer. slightly sugared, but not too much. i really appreciated it and you can‘t go wrong with it. for me it‘s kinda insider-tip...
