Tasty, but not quite great
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.
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.
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.
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.
