Tasty, but not quite great
Ritual is an amazing rum for the price you pay, it is not sold in stores in the USA, for about 7 dollars you really could not ask for anything better, at only 37.5% it is super smooth ans easy to drink.
Brought back from Cuba by family, I had high hopes. It wasn’t quite up to them so I may have overreacted. Truth is it drank well and held its own. Not amazing though and would still go 3 or 7 yr HC
This shares surely a lot of carachteristiques in common with a rum-based spirit, surely it has a low abv. percentage (37%) and some sugar added, but at this price point is a good deal, quite fresh and fancy, juvenile one to party in Cuba!
I am a Havana Club fan, but this is just bad from all points of view, starting from the design of the bottle, artificial color, and strong industrial alcohol taste. I had a sip and spit it out. Can't drink it, I wouldn't even use it as a mixer. I paid 13 euros for the bottle. I wouldn't drink this again even if it was free. For a few more euros there's several good options, like the Brugal Extra Viejo, which is in a another league compared to the Ritual.
Sugar: 20-25 GPL. This is a sweet rum with a fair amount of alcohol in the aroma, but the sweetness factor combined with the almond taste brings it closer to a liqueur than a rum. It's smooth at first with a bit of a spicey burn on the exit. It's too sweet to mix with coke. It's okay with ice and if you like Amaretto then this will do in a pinch.
It 's probably not the rum you can enjoy in pure form. A drink to grind - yes, add to the cocktail - is excellent. Roll in a sniffter - no
