Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
nice fruity taste, finished with warm vanilla, smell is so good, melasa with banana, a little bit milky, thats good dark rum, could be sipper but much better for mixed, it is worth for buy, also good for beginners.
Аромат коньячный (чувствуется довыдержка в коньячных бочках, видимо): фрукты, чернослив, немного шоколада - очень приятный и практически без спиртяги.
Послевкусие - такое же фруктово-виноградное, недолгое, но приятное. Вкус не яркий -
скорее терпкий, чем сладкий, доминирует коньяк и ощущается спиртяга.
А вообще в чистом виде пьётся тяжеловато, как будто он чрезмерно густой (хотя по консистенции он вполне нормальный).
Aroma is cognac-like (probably because of cognac cask): fruits, dried prunes and some chocolate - pleasant and soft, spirit harshness is low.
Aftertaste is the same - fruits and grape, short and pleasant. Taste is not strong - more harsh than sweet, again very cognac-like and with spirit roughness. As a second thought, it's not a mild sipper and it feels like it's too stiff (but strangely its body seems normal).
Intense aromas of raisins, vanilla and spices, complemented by exotic hues of dry pineapple and bananas
Original Dark creates an excellent base for cocktails.
This is a rum that has no signature nose and taste of rum.
A lot from cognac, probably because of second ageing in cognac barrels in France.
There are a little of Jamaica 10-15 year old spirits (Pot Still) and that's why it hits you strongly after first 40ml.
Nose - a very nice pineapple, cognac, dryness and freshness, no spirit.
Palate: cognac notes, pineapple, prunes, oak and funny dryness and freshness. Own character, without analogues.
I found that empty glass smells with pinapple.
The more you drink, the more you like it.
Unfortunately there are no signature nose and taste of melassa/sugar cane/vanilla, so it might seem like it's not rum.
Very easy to drink and the morning is very clear.
Easy to drink, but lacks flavor for sipping rum....
The benchmark under 20€ nothing to say more👊 buy it, taste it, think about the price and be amazed!
Rhum simple mais sympa avec un fort arome de vanille
not sure there is much wrong with this, dark n stormy loves it
Not a bad rum but have had better. Not the traditional smooth easy drinking rum.
Almost 7 :) A little bit too harsh but quite sippable. Great for cocktails.
Overall good, classical rich and smooth taste. Nothing surprising though.
Kind of interesting thing - fine aroma, rich taste and so on. It even could be drinked neat but it is not "original dark". It have quite light body and taste so it cant be used in cocktails... Alas!
Nuz, az som Bozkovu dal 2 z toho nieco naviac, ze je zo susednych luhov a hajov, v hodnoteni tohoto rumu, ktory mi Bozkov pripomína, iba nie je az tak desivo sladky nemam co navyse pridat. Trocha vanilky, perníkove korenie a kopec cukru. Nechuti mi ani v daiquiri, kde sa uplne straca.
Zo základných Plantation najlepší. Aj čo sa tela týka a aj dochute. Aj keď komerčne postavené mixy.
Mid gold colour, lightly burnt, caramel, buttery, sweet winey finish
Very nice colour and bottle, ridiculously affordable.
First impression might be a little overwhelming. Let it breathe a little after pouring into a glass. The aroma and taste will bloom into a pleasant and balanced experience. (OR, if you like to suffer and burn drink it right away - the esthers in the pot-still part of this rum will see to a nice spicy burn.)
Personally I'd rate it 6-7/10.
Cannot go wrong with this one, especially due to a low price. Worth a try.
had a horrible taste at 1st but then the real taste kicked in and wow how powerful strong, knock your socks off
A lot more Jamaican than Trinidadian... Opening the bottle you get a bit a cheap funky aroma , then caramel , vanilla etc. Tastes like it smells , average.. Makes a good mixer and I will use the bottle for cocktails , it should be perfect for that.
Decent for a sip. No surprises here.
Good for mix.
Aká cena, taký rum. Lacná umelina, ktorá nechutí, ale do koláča by som ho dal.
god rum til cocktails. kan dog sagtens drikke straight
A strong 6 from me. Does okay for sipping, but is probably best suited as a mixer.
I love rum and dollar for dollar at $12 this is the best rum for your money. I like it in just about any fashion. Great rum and coke, excellent above any gold rum plus you can taste the wood and it is a rather complex rum for the price point. Good Stuff and i will always have some of this in my cabinet as long as it is available for purchase. Excellent Product Plantation.
