Tasty, but not quite great
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.
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.
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.
As I like sweet rum this was not bad at all, the sweetness is given by the coconut and vanilla after taste also has a hint of coaco, fairly smooth. Overall 7/10
A natural rum, but too young with a watery taste (not sure if it's 8 years old, would estimate 4-6 years). Very light, not very intensive, not rich of aromas.
13y Angostura is much better, 16 CDI or 19y Artesanal Trinidad is in another dimension compared to this one.
Smell: oak/barrel, vanilla, some fruits like citrus and berries
Taste: vanilla, spice, oak, bitterness, medicine (almost no fruits)
Fnish: short, spicy light burn
Bardzo dobry rum w stylu angielskim. Przyjemny czekoladowy zapach i posmak. Do tego suszone owoce i delikatna wanilia. Wspaniały na solo. Bardzo dobry w Old Faschioned.
Rewelacyjny z woda kokosowa i limonka, musicie spróbować.
