Easily consumable in a bind
Strong dark color and oak nose. Have never tasted rum with such strong oak nose.. it is more like a cognac by nosing. Taste: not bad at all. Almost no sugar and strong oak taste. Really simple taste and good aftertaste. Almost no spices. Definitely like it although it is not like an usual rum.
40% ABV. Big, caramel-y nose. A bit like a sugary sweet demerara. Very weak on the palate. Tastes of artificial watermelon, a la Jolly Rancher. Cloyingly sweet, when somehow I was expecting smoky. Thick mouthfeel. The finish is long, if sticky. Warms the throat. Further sips taste a little better. A better taster could tease out more flavors.
Boy was this a disappointment. For some reason I'd expected something more akin to a Havana Club. It's not terrible, just a waste of long aging, which always makes me sad. Also, 40%. A good introductory spirit, perhaps?
I tried the Mocambo 15y and 20y back-to-back and they are both as hideous as one can imagine. The 15y tastes horrific, leaves a nasty afterburn and you will reek tobacco and stale coffee for the rest of the day. You can't even mix the 15y with Coke, it's that bad.
The top 10 worst rums I have ever tried:
1. Barbancourt 4y / 8y / 15y
2. Bounty Dark Rum from Fiji
3. Stroh 40 / 80
4. Plantation Pineapple Stiggin's Fancy
5. Villa Rica 23y
6. Mocambo 15y / 20y
7. Captain Morgan different variations
8. Don Papa 10y / 15y
9. Bacardi flavored "rums", all of them
10. Kraken rums
This rum is an unblended, single barrel aged rum in European white oak barrels. Dark rum aged for 15 years, this rum provides some smokiness, vanilla, spice, leather and tobacco notes with some heat. Nice rum for mixing or sipping neat if you like sweet rich flavored rums with an eloquent balance of flavor and intensity.
What would you expect from the land of the Tequila. sweet to the taste but not comparable to other 15yr old. Strong brown sugar taste
Alkohol: 40 %
Číslo sudu,lahve: Sud číslo 1551, lahev č.059
Aroma: Typicky rumová, hutná, koženě medová. Voní hodně sladce, s nádechem exotického koření a čokolády. (87 b)
Chuť: V chuti suchý, hořká čokoláda, koření a dřevo. Dochuť kořenitě dřevitá, hodně suchá. (84 b)
Shrnutí: Ochutnáno na vydařené rumové degustaci u josého v Hořicích, což byla neformální akcička domluvená na Whiskyfestivalu. Toto byl první panák ochutnávky, pro mě i první setkání s rumem z Mexika.
"Upon sipping it gives initially quite a nice burst of flavour, however this is quickly overtaken by intense spiciness."
