Great classic rum with its special original notes.
Absolutely smooth, strict 40°. Easy on nose and there are fontaine of vanilla, notes of chocolate, dried exotic fruits on palate.
Long enough after taste.
I wish to have it as every day drink (;hey dealers - reduce the price, pliz;)
Dokonalá tmavá 15tka z Dominikánské Republiky, láhev mi opravdu velmi chutnala a další láhev doma bych s radostí uvítal. Velmi vyvážený mírně nasládlý rum s elegantní chutí.
It is difficult to criticize a christmas gift. I was glad to have an oportunity to taste it. But never bought it for myself. Too much alcohol burn.
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.
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.
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...
