Avec des notes de café et de vanille, assez sec, ce rhum reste bien en bouche sans être trop agressif

Ffffff

Had just a sample so this review is just a first impression, but I don’t think I will dig deeper into it.
This rum is produced at an coffee estate in Colombia. After what I’ve read they don’t have any stills at the estate so the rum must have been distilled somewhere else. So what they do at the estate is probably then aging, blending and bottling.
It’s an molasses based rum probably distilled in a continuous column still. It’s also age stated, which means that it’s 8 true years (not Solera).
It’s aged in ex Bourbon American oak barrels and finished in ex coffee liqueur barrels used at the estate in their production of Coloma Coffee Liqueur.
I think the nose is nice with aromas of vanilla and coffee. It’s easy to drink and I recognize vanilla, cinnamon, almonds and some coffee in the palate. The finish got the same flavors and is relatively short.
I think it's a little strange that the coffee taste is not clearer.
Picture: My emptied sample.

Keďže rum na záver dozrieva v sudoch po kávovom likéry, čakal som výraznú kávovú chuť a vonu. No vôňa bola pomerne slabá po vanilka, káve a čokoláde. Chuť podobná hlavne vanilka a káva. Ak by bola vôňa a chuť výraznejšie zaujal by ma určite viac. Tak je to taký ľahký nadpriemer. Možno starší ročník bude lepší.

I really enjoy this rum, and keep a bottle on my shelf. Some will say it is sweet, but I don't mind some sweetness.

Good taste, but nothing special. Expected "Columbian whiskey". Hard alcohol when you take the first sip.

Un rhum qui m'a été conseillé et dont je ne suis pas déçu.

Un rhum Colombien aux notes de café très doux et qui dur en bouche.

Je le conseille fortement.

Ffffff

Opens up quick enough with some sweet oak, raisins, vanilla, a trace of orange and coffee. All in all not that inviting but not bad either. Drinking this there is still fruit and oak left but the coffee becomes more present and quite a bitter one at that. It goes down easily but there is no complexity and the notes are a bit like 'cut and paste' as the balance just seems to be restored by the sweeteners.

Some reviewers call this one dry or rather dry but this is sweet rum. Not 40g/l sweet but really sweet. The sweetness is a bit hidden behind the somewhat unpleasent bitterness (due to aging in coffee-liqueur casks?) but is defenitely there. Aftertaste is not much apart from a (too) long lingering bitterness (as in reheated coffee from the day before).
Drinkable but that's all; at this pricepoint there are dozens if not hundreds of nicer options.

Feels like it's column still with added sugar. Good taste, but nothing special. Expected "Columbian style whiskey" instead of simple sugar.

For 70CAD there is better choice.
