Tasty, but not quite great
i like this. it's a bit simple, little too much alcohol taste. but not sweetened or at least badly. very pleasant. if it were aged a bit more or perhaps at a higher proof (maybe 90-95 instead of 80) it might get to a 7 or 8.... really, not bad at all for the price. can sip neat, on rocks, or mix without guilt.
Powerful rum, more sour tones than f.e. zacapa 23. Much stronger mouthfeeling, darker tones here than zacapa or Don Q gran Anejo. Sweet, cane-like. Still nice for me personally.
Was wondering how exclusiva would taste if only you could somehow remove the extra sweetness...
Now I know and I can confirm it's good.
Missing the complexity as well...
It still has an intense alcohol flavour. Probably it needs some time to settle down a bit. But in this price range it is reasonable.
"Overall it is a sweet rum. There is a little spice on the palate and a tiny slither of oak. The finish has a little coffee and a touch of caramel. It is smooth and very easy to drink."
