Lugter, smager alt for kraftigt efter min smag. Ikke min type.

I was not expecting to much from this one so my disappointment was not that big. It smells like agricole rum and taste is with flavours of rice?!, wood, grass and some vanilla.

This is my first taste of a rum that adds rice during the fermentation process so I'm kinda left for a loss for words on how best to describe it but I'll give it my best shot. The nose is very strong notes of grass and something that resembles herb tea. The first taste is one of very high alcohol. Because sugarcane is used this possible be used as a mixture for a substitute of Rhum but I'm not sure I would want to go that route. Unfortunately I'm left underwhelmed.

Too hot to be a neat sipper, a bitter after taste, grass notes combined with floral honey.

Dank seiner 48% sehr intensiv
Duftet fein nach warmen Kräutern mit etwas Vanille und leichter Esthernote.
Im Mund dann kräftig würzig und auf der Zunge dezent süss mit Fruchtigen Anklängen.

Více alkoholu než bývá u rumu obvyklé a na chuti se to projeví. Ochutnáním nic nezkazíte, na nákup lahve to ale nevidím.

Not one of my favourites, very strong to the nose and palate even with coke and ice

Entry is dry and it gets earthy and mushroom like.

20ml uit een advent kalender. Bij het maken van Arak wordt rode rijst gebruikt bij het fermenteren. Levert in ieder geval een pittige rum op, kruidig, pepermunt, alcohol proef je wel (48%)
Wel lekker eigenlijk.

A little smokey on the nose with fresh cut lemongrass. I’ve encountered this character before from other indonesian rum. It’s a little dry and floral on the palate with black pepper and citrus. Decently balanced with a peppery finish. Though it's not paticularly rounded or complex it will do in a pinch.
