Now this is some good stuff
Not only is this RUM incredibly delicious! It is ultra smooth. Beautiful in color and presentation (bottle). But why it deserves a 10 is the price point!!! I dare you to find ANY RUM as smooth, tasty, and refined under $40??? Sure there are worthy contenders. But none that are as overall palatable as this fine gem from Guatemala! I have about 10 absolute favorites and this is in my Top 5 easily! It is not as complex as say Don Pancho 18yr Reserva Especial or my absolute favorite: Plantation XO 20, but again, for the money, there is none better!
An exceptionally smooth and aromatic XO rum finished in ex-Cognac casks. Similar to Plantation 20th , this is a wonderful sipping rum and will be on my top shelf.
The nose was sweet, the body was thin and wasn't full.. it was to smooth, like that of lil to no after taste, disappearing like a scotch into the back of the throat. For the price of $33 it was right and better then most at the price range.. I can't figure out the flavors even when I continued to clear my pallet.. I will pair it with different items to see what flavors I can pull out.. it's sweet though.
Update: I revisited this after tasting Cartavio XO and getting my Glencairn glasses. It's Eve better, smooth as can be. Definitely deserves a purchase and a try, more than once.
Selected three rums around a similar price point. The El Pasador, Papas Pilar Dark Rum, and Santa Theresa 1796. This was our favorite.
A mature rum that’s had time to develop character. Hints of something floral, like plumeria, though not perfumy.
Lightly sweet, which we like. A rich mouthfeel, that stuck to the tongue, in a good way.
Ends with a little spice and heat.
Rum is in beautiful white box, bottle is fantastically shaped, rum is very smooth, no burn at all and contains plenty of exciting flavors, for great money it offers a lot of flavours and aromas!
Perhaps when I try a rum from a more expensive price category, I will change my attitude to this rum, but so far it is the best.
This one is full of butterscotch.
Both on the nose and on the pallet.
Nice light oily texture
Smooth with the slightest heat on the finish.
Lingering taste of vanilla cream and a bit of candy corn.
Excellent rum, just a little "thinner" than the gran reserva. Complex, peppery/oaky still sweet. A great sipper and good price/quality ratio. I would strongly recommend it. Nice long warm finish.
