The Takamaka Spiced is a pretty young rum, distilled from molasses. Nosing reveals nice mild notes of vanilla with some cherry marmalade in the distance. Palate adds some spicy notes (what a surprise given its name) but this is kept to a pleasant level which still leaves enough room for the vanilla and cherry marmalade notes to be present. Same notes define the finish. Overall a mild rum with a good price-value ratio. Also good for mixing purposes.
Vůně sladší exotické ovoce. Chuť už tolik sladká není. Primární chuť je exotické ovoce s vanilkou. Postupem času se ovoce vytrácí a do popředí se dostává vanilka.
It would be very easy to sit back, dream of tropical islands, and finish my whole bottle of takamaka Bay Spices Rum. Very smooth and easy drinking.
Miroase ca esenta de rom din timpul comunismului. Gustul de alcool se evidentiaza si se pastreaza inestetic. Să fie oare o veche influenta franceza a romului agricol? Recomand doar o singura data, pentru impresie.
I bought this bottle after trying it while out in the Seychelles. On opening the bottle I got assaulted with strong over-ripe fruit, a huge hit of vanilla and a strong tone of nutmeg. On sipping the rum had a strong burn and was quite overpowering. The lingering aftertaste had a complex mix of tropical soil, fruit (breadfruit, banana, papaya), subtle hints of vanilla, cane syrup and nutmeg. The aftertaste dissipates quite quickly which leaves room for improvement. I do hope Takamaka Bay Distilleries expands their line and develops a more mature and unique flavour profile. 6/10
