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!
I have tasted over 700 aged rums over the past 15 years and I know the Mexicans can produce some amazing tequila's, but this supposedly 20 year rum tastes horrific, leaves a very bad afterburn and you will reek tobacco leaves and stale coffee for the rest of the day. You can't even mix this with Coke, it's that bad. The bottle looks artsy, but the liquid inside is pure rat poison.
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
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.
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
