Recommendable to most
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.
Το μπουκάλι σε προδιαθέτει για πολύ μεγάλα πράγματα , στοπ ......... καλό μεν , όχι όμως εντυπωσιακό ..... Ένα ρούμι που δε βρίσκεις εύκολα , γι αυτό και πρέπει να το πιεις όταν σου δοθεί η ευκαιρία !!!!!!! Εμπειρία ..... Πάμε γι άλλα !!!!!!
I always let my new rums breathe before first tasting, with 30 minutes being the longest that I have ever had to wait. Well, this one still burns an hour later and to the point of obliterating the flavors. Drinking neat is only about two drops at a time and not very pleasant. Ice cubes really help. But at this price, I bought myself an expensive mixer. This bottle took the longest to finish when I was in Las Vegas. Since it is so hard to find and there are better and cheaper mixers available closer to home, I will bid farewell to this one.
What a disappointment the Ron Relicario Supremo was. New entrance to the local Total Wine, but in this price range there are dozens better. Relicario has a very nice looking bottle, semi dark color, but very strong alcohol smell and a really harsh taste. Full of artificial flavors and a raisin overload.
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...
