Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Upper mixer / Lower sipper. I had it straight with no ice. Oak and fruits are the predominant flavors. Quite smooth for an 8-yo rum but not very complex.
I did really enjoy this drop, one of my favourites. Please try
Nice golden color. Some initial harshness in the nose, that dissipates with some breathing. Fruity wood sents.
Véry smooth in the mouth, nice round bitterness of oak with fruit flavours and a hint of vanilla. Has a little kick when swallowing and a distant but nice aftertaste.
A liqueur. Essences, vanilla, etc. A rum? Heck no. This is rubbish, sooo rubbish.
Předčil očekávání, ostrý, ale velmi chutný a voňavý
It’s a very smooth rum..
Perfect rum for starting a tasting journey (for starters)
It doesn’t burn even though it’s only 8yo
Definitely a shipping rum not very complex but it’s enjoyable
Do not waste it for mixing
Not recommended for a collection
A great rum for mixing. Smooth and silky with a great after taste.
Huele dulce, agradable, vainilla y quizás algo de nueces. En boca mucho sabor, mucha vainilla nuevamente. No es tan dulce como me lo había imaginado. Tampoco muy alcohólico. Quizás le falta algo mas de cuerpo y complejidad. El color me parece bastante honesto. La tapa, por el precio, podría ser mas elaborada. De todas maneras es mejor de lo esperado.
Testade denna på Duane Doves master class på Birkas romkryssning 2019. Blev riktigt förvånad när han tog fram flaskan och visade vilken rom vi hade provat.
tastes very smooth, a lot of vanilla and fruits. no "glue" or burning in the smell.
It's not my favourite one and the "wohoo"-effect wasn't there, but I think you can't go wrong with it.
Nose: spicy, fruity, pleasant
Palate: warm, some slight sharpness, rather a fine and thin spirit, some scent of wood maybe, not voluminous, not long lasting. But pretty sweet taste. Pleasant.
Rhum doux aux notes de vanille et caramel . Prix maxi 40 euros
I thought this would’ve be a good Caribbean rum. Maybe my palate but I struggle to compare it to any other rum. I decided to drown it with coke. This is my first negative review. But this rum is not for me.
En super lækker Rom med dejlige noter af røg og lakrids. En lækker sippe rom som nemt kan drikkes uden is
Nose: some butterscotch and vanilla right up front. Then a tiny bit of alcohol smell but nothing off-putting. Also some sweetness at the end which keeps lingering.
Taste: starts sweet and a bit watery. This is followed by some spices, molasses and vegetal notes. Not very complex.
Finish: taste is gone quickly after swallowing. A hefty burn follows, which stays for quite some time. Ends watery.
Final: I would recommend this more for mixing then I would for sipping. While it definitely is enjoyable neat, it doesn’t really have to offer a lot in terms of complexity or taste. This will most definitely suffice for all recipes that ask for a gold Puerto Rican rum, e.g. this makes a killer zombie.
Notes: added 3 drops of water. Also, I'm an inexpercienced taster so the details might be inaccurate, but it's still really enjoyable for my still-developing palate.
Cocos, cacao & vanilla flavor. Good rum but the alcohol and the flavors are a littlebit out of balance.
A friend bough this for me when visiting him in Austria, because he knew I was into rum. He paid 30+ euros for it, at a local minimarket. The smell invites you to taste it, only to fell the strong taste of alcohol, which takes away it's flavor. Definitely not a sipper for me. And surely will not buy again.
Lekkere warme, volle geur. Mooie kleur, wel wat licht. Met drupjes water minder scherp op de tong maar blijft wat vlak. Lekker maar minder diep en vol dan gedacht, smaak is snel weg. Eigenlijk zou 6,5 een beter cijfer zijn.
The rum is a very light pour.
The nose is unimpressive.
The mouth feel is thin.
There is a very distinct alcohol burn and limited flavours.
The rum is smooth.
The after taste is subtle and may actually be better than the taste in the mouth.
Definitely drinkable, however probably better suited as a mixer.
As a mixer it would be contributing very little in flavour profile so it would be used as a base rum or alcohol source. If all you are really using it for is as an alcohol source there are numerous less expensive choices out there.
I just got a tasting box, 6 rums under 30 euros.
Angostura 1919 was the lightest one, light smell of spiritus, not much in the mouth.
And not long lasting, but an easy sipping rum.
N- Not often rum improve with breathing, but this one an exceptional. Initially with white fruit and condensed milk + black tea, very local 'teh-xi'. Watery, mineral in the middle and molasses syrup at tail, masked with sugar on each sniff. Then ice cream soda, root beer with charred peels emerged, capped with delicious vanilla ice cream and balanced subtle wood and solvent floral notes. (87/21)
P- Sweet and subdue initially, then get whiff of medicinal along fresh pine and antiseptic nuance, sounds like detergent I know, but don't taste like it, so no worry. Semi dry, peppery and waxy, the medicinal part works well with the creamy coat. (87/21)
F- Medium, vanilla fudge, plenty of tart fruits linger, broad with good depth. (86/20)
Body/Balance:- Ordinary at the beginning, but body builds up overtimes make every subsequent sips taste better then the earlier. (87/21)
Weighted Rate:- 83pt

This was a really good drink to start a good rum tasting evening. It went down smooth, but no special taste afterwards!
The rum from Trinidad. Smells good, taste good, and its like a smooth rumslide in your mouth
