Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I found that this rum has a smoky flavor that reminded me of scotch whiskey. It has a very clean finish and didn't burn add it went down. I have recommended this rum to the CEO of my company and he was impressed with it.
It does have a lot of smokiness to it for a rum but still has some of that burnt sugar sweetness. To me this rum has a very distinct flavor and is one of my favorites so far for a sipping rum.
Dark amber, intense colour, with hints of red.
Rich syrupy legs.
Intense and complex nose.
Nuts, caramel, dried fruits, chocolate and vanilla.
Expressive nose, well integrated alcohol and good quality of aromas.
Strong and very sugar concentration
Syrupy body with a dry minerality and a winey layer.
Powerful on palate yet elegant and dry.
Flavour reflects the nose.
Refined and well-balanced flavours, alcohol is not aggressive.
Wonderful vanilla and caramel aroma in the bottle. Translates well in the flavor. As it hits the tongue one is awash in a complex series of flavors. Some sweetness but not even close to be overwhelming. Very smooth. No burn. Just a nice lingering warmth fading slowly revealing a vanilla and oak aftertaste. Definitely a sipping rum. I prefer this straight up. I think even on the rocks would diminish this fine rum.
This Rum is very nice smooth like a good scotch no after bite.
I see some low ratings of this rum and I have to disagree. While it may not be the best it's a solid performer. Well balanced, polished finish, amazing bottle.
Love this rum
Trochu tóny jako zemědělský rum, což mi vyhovuje. Zajímavý rum (nejen vzhledem).
Fun bottle with a good story, but also a rich natural bourbon barrel flavor and soft mouthfeel and caramel in the nose.
Vista: Caramelo oscuro, ámbar
Olfato: Dulce con una gran intensidad de frutas secas, uva, cereza y ciruela, agradable presencia de notas de vainilla, madera húmeda, nuez y moka. Toque de caramelo
Gusto: Uva, ciruela, nuez con un toque de chocolate y café.
Final: Largo y sedoso con un toque de caramelo y ligeramente amargo
At $50 CAD a bottle, it a steal. My first impression was tequila. It was only subtle, but it caught me off guard. It took some time with it... and as it turns out, I am a big fan. Was my first Mexican rum, but opened my eyes to exploring more. Beautiful dark colour and a unique flavour that I truly enjoy. Hope I can find it when I go looking again!
I know Mexico is known for their Tequilas but I had to try at least one Rum produced by that country and I chose the Mocambo 20 yr Rum. Having read the reviews I kept an open mind and my first impression of this spirit was the beautiful dark colour of the spirit, followed by aromas of coffee, dark chocolate and tobacco. On my first sip the cinnamon flavour came through along with those previously mentioned and my first sample left me wondering whether I liked it or not. The more I sipped on it the more I acclimatized to the unusual flavours. This is not my typical rum but it nevertheless surprised me and the unique taste adds to my rum collection. better than I expected. Not a rum I would drink on a daily basis but a nice change from usual flavours.
Dunkles Bernstein im Glas.
In der Nase dominierende Holztöne mit Karamell als Begleiter.
Im Gaumen bleibt das Holz dominant, gefolgt von einem alten Karamell.
Im Abgang scharf mit einem süssen Karamell.
Ein Mexikaner der erlebt werden will. Eher für Fortgeschrittene.
Dark amber in the glass.
In the nose dominant wood tones with caramel as a companion.
On the palate, the wood remains dominant, followed by an old caramel.
In the finish sharp with a sweet caramel.
A Mexican who wants to be experienced. Rather for advanced.
This is a pretty good rum from Mexico. Like most Mexican rums I've tried, this has a lot of added... 'character'.
Smells and tastes of heavy oak, leather, tobacco, coffee, dark chocolate, nougat, figs, pepper, cinnamon, and brown sugar. It's got a lot going on and is quite nice. It doesn't have a traditional rum flavor, though it's a great example of what I've come to expect from Mexican rum. Definitely worth a try!
Much better than I expected, still not amazing but it was a good buy for the price
I am into A.H. Riise, but sometimes I need a different taste to realize where home is....
I tried Mocambo 20 years after reading the Ratings. Smooth at the beginning, dark chocolate and cinnamon on the finish. A tiny bit of pepper perhaps. very interesting.
I love the bottle presentation and the fact that no two bottles are alike, similar to Wild Tiger Special Reserve rum from India. A single cask rum similar to its younger 15 year old sibling. Some bitterness and dryness coming from the leather, cigar leave, and woody taste. The taste is somewhat bitter and tastes like dried fruit. Would do well in a Cuba Libre or other mixed drinks.
Bon rhum provenant directement du Mexique et qui réchauffe encore la gorge malgré une soirée bien arrosée.
Ron normal, nada fuera de lo normal, sabor fuerte y obscuro, lo más llamativo y bonito es su botella!
Vieilli 20 ans, ce rhum mexicain est à l'image de la bouteille qui le contient: unique. Son goût est épicé sans être boisé. A essayer ne serait-ce que pour admirer la bouteille.
nice sipping rum, not up to par with the big ones, but a nice change. different.
Commentaire suivra dans les prochains jours. Une autre dégustation du produit et à venir.
Tried a flight of 5 Mocambo rums. Wasn't expecting much from a Mexican rum but this was nice. Wouldn't rush out and buy a bottle but definitely would drink again
