Tasty, but not quite great
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.
I won't spend much time describing it, had a glass 2 days ago, and will never try it again...The beautiful and original bottle will look forever great on my shelf ! The taste I m trying my best to gorget about it. Nothing worked to rince it's aweful taste. Even coke tasted bitter...
The nose in the other hand was quite pleasant, sweet and without any alcohol smell....
It was really hard to drink this rum. It’s strange and nasty I’m shocked anyone would like this. That is unless you like to lick ashtrays and eat shaved car tires. I’m sorry can’t think of anything redeemable except the cool bottle.
Aroma nice with wood and raisins. Taste is drier with dates and earth. Aftertase is shorter with strange tones. Interesting to taste, but not to buy bottle.
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.
I want to like this rum, but honestly there is nothing special about it. There are cheaper rums with more complexity to be had at a better price.
