musim povedat ze tento rum je doteraz mojim najvacsim prekvapenim. pravdu povediac ma najprv zaujala flaska lebo som si ju chcel nechat ako dekanter (preto su na foto odlepene nalepky), ale cim viac som o tomto rume cital tym viac som bol zvedavy. A musim povedat ze je to uplna bomba. najlesie vonajuci rum aky som doteraz skusal 11 z 10 za vonu :-). chut je vyborna, prijemny sladsi nastup, citim vanilku, jemne drevo, prijemne koreniste. super vyvazene. aj ked je sladsi nastup nieje to celkovo sladky rum, sladky je len nastup, ale sladkost sa postupne vytraca. telo dost vyrazne a prekvapivo jemny dozvuk s jemnym zahriatim. fantazia. nedam 10/10 len preto urcite existuje nieco co mi bude este viac chutit. ale toto je u mna v TOP 3. davam 9,6/10
Sugar: Estimated at 15 GPL. First of all this rum has a great chestnut colour and a stylish bottle. It tastes like a whiskey. Not sure if that's from the American Oak barrels this was aged in but I think that's a good enough assumption. It has a sharp alcohol nose to it and a sharp taste to match. Burnt Oak, Vanilla, Pepper, and raisins are the dominant tastes for me. It's balanced but sharp, and you definitely have to let this rum air out or add a couple drops of water as it tastes better. It's got a long burn on the end....pepper. It's overpriced in Canada at $100, but I got it today on sale for $80 and after several tastings, I think that I paid too much. If you like whiskey then you will like this rum.
Light nose with vanilla, oak and raisins. On the palate there is also a hint of orange but dried fruits are prominent with a little pepper. It is also a tad harsh and for me that is a blessing (of sorts) as it gets the attention away from the added sugar; not overly sweet but I have my doubts about calling it semi-dry.
Not really a pleasant sip, and I don't get it's pricetag (€40-50), so all in all an overpriced rum that needs the sugar to get the worst off of its sharp edges. Not something to look for but it will do if nothing else is available. At €15-20 it would be more in line with its profile and the flaws would be forgivable but alas...
An eye catcher in the bottle for sure. Thankfully, it doesn't disappoint you once poured in the glass. A simple smooth swirl of the glass is all it takes to reveal the character of this fine rum. Nice sweet aroma on the nose, fairly tasty in the mouth not fully bodied and oily on the throat though, hence a 7.
A rum everyone should definitely try at least once and I will personally be more than happy to enjoy again with good company if given the chance.
Very nice rum from start to finish. Dark fruits on the nose, no burn and finishes with a hint of vanilla and cherries. Smooth and tasty.
Picked this up at total wine for $35. The bottle is interesting with a twist off lid instead of a cork. At first pour, the flavor is a bit hot and sweet at the end. After about 5 minutes the flavor profile drastically changes. It has a sweeter flavor and less burn. There is a presence of oak as well. With another swirl of the glass, there is a hint of leather taste pulling through. There are other warm flavors such as almonds or walnuts. It does round out and provides a smooth finish. Definitely recommend to try at least once.
