170 grams of sugar added, compared to Zacapa 23's 20 or Diplomatico's 40. Quite ridiculous. Still, it's somewhat enjoyable. Flavor is dominated by coconut, orange and sugar. If you like liqueur with a tropical flavor, you'll like this.
Enjoyed a bottle of Companero Elixir Orange with my buddies while chilling out in Germany. Very nice box and bottle design. Dark brown color. Very strong orange flavor to both nose and palate. Not artificial orange like Pyrat has, so easily earns 2 points more.

Hned po otevření se projeví velmi výrazná vůně kokosu, což mě vzhledem k názvu překvapilo. Pomeranč je cítit také, ale až za kokosem. Chuť je na počátku velmi sladká, jako u likéru, ovšem na rozdíl od něj se vzápětí projeví hřejivost a možná na chvilku trošku ostřejší chuť (ale spíš relativně vzato k počáteční sladkosti), která připomene, že obsah alkoholu řadí tento kousek do rumů. Delší dochuť, u které počáteční kokos rychle mizí a dává vystoupit pomeranči. Velmi příjemné, klidně bych u toho strávil večer :)
I think this should really be classified as a liqueur since it's so sweet with so much sugar added. It's really a sugar bomb with tons of orange added. If you like sweet and orange then this is for you but not really my thing drinking neat but I could possibly find some uses for it in mixed drinks.
Je to v podstatě spíše kříženec Triple sec a Malibu, než rum... Chuť ani vůně neurazí, spousta pomerančů, sladkost kokosu, celkem příjemné pití, ale tohle pod pojmem rum opravdu nečekám...
Definitely not a standard rum - may probably offend the core rum drinkers - with loads of aditives but with awesomely strong orange aroma both in the nose and on the palate. A 40% elixir with certainly enough gas in the tank. It kicks your nose at the first sniff. Might be cheaper though, for an elixir. Lastly, the stupid (though somewhat cool looking) bottle design literally calls for a dropper. Companero Orange is just as original as its stronger blue brother but the actual taste fits me better. It is arguably the best elixir rum I have so far tried.
LOTS of orange and coconut. The taste is so strong strong and overpowering you just can't sip it. That said, it tastes just perfect to mix into a drink or something. Gonna have to try that. Not overly sweet like some rums (A.H. Riise, hello?). Still it seems a little pricy for a mixer. It would make you use it wisely.
Description smells unique. Kinda spicy neat. Like tastes fire. Definitely spiced well. Tastes unique like the smell. This is beautiful. This took me by surprised it was a dream to taste. Slightly synthetic but equally lush and full of flavour yet with a strong rum essence. Couldn’t have to much but to sip neat or with a small Mixer it’s perfect.
