Tasty, but not quite great
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.
Coloma est un rhum élevé en altitude et fini en fût de liqueur de café.
Un produit très agréable à déguster.
Nez très léger, mais un peu sec et un peu piquant.
Alcool équilibré en bouche.
Amertume apportée par un goût de chocolat noir, équilibré par le sucre.
Plutôt sympa en petite quantité.
Sød duft med et hint af mokka. Dufter faktisk rigtig godt. Smag mokka og tør tobak, som desværre ikke er helt på højde med duften, men rommen er ikke dårlig. (12. December 2019 i 1423)
My knowledge of Coloma before tasting this one was lacking to say the least, but after tasting it, then I must admit, that there is some potential in this rum from Colombia moving forward.
Nose: Coffee, chocolate and vanilla with a slight woody feel
Taste: Vanilla, coffee and almonds
Overall: This is not mindblowing, but it is a good solid rum at a fair price. If you want to try something new, that isn´t too complex, then you can do a lot worse then picking up a bottle of this rum.
It seems to have some sugar added, which is slightly balanced by the bitters from coffee and dark chocolate. IMO there should be less sugar added to achieve a better balance in flavors. In nose, it is very interesting the oaky smell.
Na základe recenzií som sa tešil na túto známu Kolumbijskú značku. Moje očakávania sa však nenaplnili, vôňa nebola plná. Chuť to mierne vylepšila,no nebola z môjho pohľadu vyvážená. Skôr pikantná,nevyzerá.
