I bought when skiing, so never a good time to buy, but I note that it is about €35 in normal places. Bought because the other Columbian rum (La Hechicera) is something I was a great fan of

The "fault". I have a feeling that this has had sugar added and a bit too much. Having said that, I don't mind rums with sugar having been added, although I do like Richard Seale's quest to label any additions (as well as liking his non-sugar added rums).

Can't quite decide whether it should be a 7 or an 8. On balance (until edited!) an 8, even if I feel there has been the addition of sugar. The American oak flavours on the nose and palate are enticing. Hints of vanilla and mocha and the merest hint of chocolate and tropical fruits. A nice burn from the spirit, which leads to a medium length which is dominated by the vanilla and oak.

Would I buy again - absolutely, hence why 8 rather than 7.

EDIT - the bottle has now opened up - a lot. The sweetness is now a little too overpowering and it reminds me a bit of the confected flavours that an Angostura 1919 has both on the nose and palate. TBH I don't mind that sweetness - its easy to drink and serves a purpose when the mood takes it. But it is expensive....far more than the 1919, hence a 6 rather than a 7.

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.

Rhum doux, arôme de orange, café (à peine) et de vanille. Veilli en fut de chêne 8 ans par 2 femmes maître du rhum. Un peu cher, je le recommande tout de même.

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

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.

Inget speciellt men slinker ner. Ganska intetsägande rom

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.
