Osobne mi tento rum chuti. Je trosku stiplavejsi, ale chut je prijemna, ovocna. Je to jeden z mojich oblubenych rumov.

Bardzo przyjemny i delikatny. Nie jest przesadnie slodki, dla mnie taki akurat. W zapachu wyczuwalna debina. Według mnie fajnie zachowana równowaga smaku między beczką, a owocami tropikalnymi.
Dobry do picia solo. W Old Fashioned klasa!

Should be great for tiki cocktails. But imo is much to sweet to drink on its own.

Unique taste. This rum has pineapple and earl grey tea flavor.
But there's a lot of body in this rum.
Not bad. But I got bored with half of a bottle.

A marvellous dark rum from Mauritius, produced by the Grays folks behind the New Grove rum range. This expression is made using rum drawn from French and American oak casks. The charming dodo on the label looks at you with a sassy stare, which is fun. Bright grapefruit and mango, joined by fragrant vanilla and chewy toffee.

Good, balanced flavor. Delicate, sweetish with a pleasant smell. I liked it more with an ice cube.

Na Lazy Dodo mi nejvíc zaujala flaška :) jinak vůně nevýrazná, chuť asi trochu do ovoce ale štiplavej a to já nerad

Lazy Dodo Single Estate ist ein Blend aus Jahrgangsrums, welche mindestens 12 Jahre gelagert sind und dann in frischen amerikanischen Eichenfässern kurz nach gelagert wird. Der Rum wird aus Melasse hergestellt welche natürlich fermentieren darf. Melasse Rum ist für Mauritius eher untypisch, spielt für mich aber keine Rolle.

In der Nase ist der Rum durchaus fruchtig. Man sollte ihm aber ein paar Minuten Zeit geben, damit die alkoholische Note verfliegt. Am Gaumen zeigt er sich mit fruchtiger Süße und einem sehr eigenen Geschmack. Zitrusfrüchte sind hier sehr dominant. Ich schmecke an der Zunge aber auch holzige Fassnoten, welche den Rum für mich aufwerten. Der Abgang ist leider kurz und zeigt keine weitere Entwicklung des Rums.

Der Lazy Dodo ist ein eigenwilliger Rum welcher sich für ca. 30-35Euro nicht verstecken braucht. Daher auch 7 statt 6 Flaschen. Die recht eigene Note macht ihn interessant aber für mich dann auch nicht zu einem Rum, welchen ich täglich sippen werde. Am Ende fehlt es ihm vor allem hinten raus doch an dem gewissen Punch. Das Flaschen Design finde ich durchaus Abwechslungsreich.

Lazy Dodo Single Estate is a blend of vintage rums that are stored for at least 12 years and then gets a Finish in fresh American oak barrels. The rum is made from molasses which can ferment naturally. Molasserum is rather untypical for Mauritius, but that does not matter to me.

In the nose, the rum is quite fruity. But you should give him a few minutes to let the alcoholic note evaporate. On the palate it shows itself with fruity sweetness and a very own taste. Citrus fruits are very dominant here. But I also taste woody barrel notes on my tongue, which enhance the rum for me. Unfortunately, the finish is short and shows no further development of the rum.

The Lazy Dodo is an idiosyncratic rum that does not need to hide for about 30-35Euro. Therefore 7 instead of 6 bottles. He has his own taste what makes it interesting but for me it is not a Rum for the daily sipping. All together he lacks a certain punch, especially at the Finish. The bottle design is quite varied.

Great and smooth fruity and vanila finish. Nice with cola

Oak and citrus zest in the nose, mild aromas. Sweet fruity taste with pinaple, citrus, oak and sightly bitter taste of tea on the tongue. Very little afterburn, pleasant tea and oak with an interesting fresh feeling at the finish. Overall it's decent but far from great. It seems the rum is incomplete, lacks bold character, the taste composition is not particularly deep.

Smells like agricole. Of all agricole rums this is the one I could enjoy.

Smell: fermented citrus fruits, vanilla, some caramel
Taste: paper, slight sweetness, citrus fruits, spice, some bitterness
Nice fruity aftertaste. Green apple.

Sweetness: 2/5
Fruit: 3/5
Spice: 2.5/5
Mildness: 3/5
